The growing research impact of APEP; a global leader in UCD


Thursday, 17 November, 2022

The School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy is now placed 2nd of UCD’s 36 Schools in terms of Citation Impact. With APEP gaining a Field-Weighted Citation Impact Score of 2.69, based on 5-year average; this means the School’s research has been cited 169% more than world average of 1.00 in its field for similar publications.

Head of School, Eoin O’Neill commented “although an incomplete metric, it does provide an important comparative measure of the quality of our research as recognized by our academic peers through citations. It is important to highlight this impressive performance by the Schools research community and the continuing upward trajectory achieved over the last number of years”.

This level of global performance will also help us to attract and retain the best staff and attract top doctoral and post-doctoral candidates, for which we have a number of vacancies created through the significant number of recent prestigious research awards from both Irish and Horizon Europe research funding programmes.
