Top 10 institutions / ANZ / Physical sciences
Australia and New Zealand’s leading institutions for high-quality science, ordered by weighted fractional count (WFC) for 2015. Also shown are institutions’ fractional count (FC), the total number of articles (AC), and the change in WFC from 2012–2015. Articles are from the 68 journals that comprise the Nature Index.

Weighted fractional count (WFC) for each institution is shown to two decimal places only. When two or more institutions have the same WFC, their positions are determined by the thousandth place (or beyond).
These results are based on the most recent data available. Owing to continual refinements of the data, the figures in the database are liable to change and might differ to those printed in the supplements.
