Best Universities for Nuclear Physics in the World

Below is the list of best universities in the World ranked based on their research performance in Nuclear Physics. A graph of 3.85M citations received by 119K academic papers made by 1,008 universities in the World was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.
