The Nature Index is a database compiled by Nature Portfolio that provides an indication of research output and collaboration by tracking contributions to articles published in 82 high-quality natural-science journals, chosen by an independent group of researchers. It counts both the absolute (Count) and fractional (Share) number of publications to also evaluate the share of authorship on each article. 

The ranking published in Nature Index 2021 Young Universities takes into account the papers published in 2015-2020 and the corresponding Share values.
