Advanced Research Computing Boosts Quality of Canadian Research

Our colleagues at Compute Canada have recently analysed how using advanced computing resources impacts research outputs:

Informed by the collection of CVs from more than 2,300 Canadian faculty members who are active Compute Canada (CC) users, Compute Canada has embarked on an analysis of CC-enabled publications by those faculty members. CC-enabled publications are seen to be well above both the world and Canadian average scientific impact across a broad range of disciplines. When considered institution-by-institution, CC-enabled publications generally have greater impact than the non-CC publications at the same institution. The greatest differences are seen in emerging ARC disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. The document uses common bibliometric metrics to describe publication impact over the collected dataset.
