ISRAEL - Weizmann Ranks 8th for Scientific Performance

Arno Froese

Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science has maintained its reputation as one of the top research institutions worldwide, with a recent ranking placing it at No. 8 globally for scientific performance.

The ranking is not subjective and is based on the number of publications and citations to indicate the quality of research, as well as the institution’s size.

Overall, 19% of Weizmann papers were ranked in the top 10% for scientific impact, as were over 20% of papers written by Weizmann’s biomedical and health science researchers. A total of 2.5% of Weizmann papers were in the top percentile for scientific impact, and 65% were in the top half of those with the greatest impact of all.

Weizmann was also recognized by U-Multi-rank 2021, a European Commission initiative. This saw Weizmann ranked in the top 25 institutes worldwide for patents awarded and top-cited publications.

Arno's Commentary

As the article indicates, rankings are subject to multiple criteria, but suffice it to say that a small nation of approximately 9 million people—while under severe pressure from declared enemy countries—still managed to attain such a significant place in the world.

Christians, of course, know this is only the beginning. Israel is destined to fulfill prophecy. Here are the words of God: “For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt” (Deuteronomy 7:6-8).
