Top 20 Japanese institutions in Physical Sciences by international MCS

The table shows the top 20 Japanese institutions in the physical sciences ranked by their international multilateral collaboration score (international MCS) from January 2015 to October 2018. The international MCS sums up the contribution of each Japanese institution and their overseas partners to high-quality research papers in the field. Also listed are each institution's total MCS, fractional count (FC) and article count (AC) in the physical sciences in the Nature Index during the same period.
