China Agricultural University
China Agricultural University (CAU) is a public research university in Beijing, China. It specializes in agriculture, engineering, and biology, among others. It evolved from the College of Agriculture in the former Imperial University of Peking, founded in 1905. Its university status was formalized in 1995 through the merging of the Beijing Agricultural Engineering University and the Beijing Agricultural University. CAU is known as the top agricultural institution in the country. It is part of China’s Project 985 and Project 211.
China Agricultural University Key Statistics
The higher education institution comprises 20 colleges and faculties offering more than 60 undergraduate majors and 120 postgraduate programs (140 master’s and around 80 doctoral programs). Most of the colleges specialize in subdisciplines of agriculture and related fields, such as the College of Horticulture, the College of Animal Science and Technology, and the College of Resources and Environmental Sciences. Aside from agricultural courses, students have the option to choose from specializations in engineering, economics and management, and humanities and development.
China Agricultural University enrolls over 12,000 undergraduate students and 8,900 graduate students every year. Around 500 of those are international students. It employs 1,800 academic staff working in one of its campuses. CAU manages three campuses, namely the East Campus, the West Campus, and the Jianshe Campus.
An important piece of China Agricultural University key statistics is the China Agricultural University Library, hailed as one of the most important libraries in agricultural research and education in the country. It houses more than 1.7 million volumes of paper documents, 2.6 million electronic journals, and 4 million electronic books.
China Agricultural University Research
China Agricultural University research centers on agriculture, engineering, human development, and other related fields. As a Class A Double First Class University, it has spent more than 1.2 million RMB in research. Research funding is provided by the Chinese government through the National High Technology R&D Program of China, the National Natural Science Fund, and other grants from project partners local and international.
The university specializes in producing academic and industrial outputs in various fields like biology, chemistry, and environmental science. Its researchers, students, and faculty members also actively participate in conferences such as ICONS: International Conference on Systems, JCIS: Joint International Conference on Information Sciences, and CI: Computational Intelligence.
The most cited China Agricultural University research output is Liu et al.’s (2016) “Emergence of plasmid-mediated colistin resistance mechanism MCR-1 in animals and human beings in China: A microbiological and molecular biological study,” which was published in Lancet Infectious Diseases journal. It was cited 3,772 times by researchers and experts around the world.
Its second most popular academic paper is Fang, Yang, and Wu’s (2002) “Free radicals, antioxidants, and nutrition,” which was published in the Nutrition journal. It was cited 3,466 times by researchers. CAU’s third most popular research is Wu et al.’s (2004) “Glutathione metabolism and its implications for health,” which was cited 3,346 times. It was published in the Journal of Nutrition.
In addition, CAU houses a number of key laboratories, including five research teams, 10 ministerial research centers, four state research centers, 22 key ministerial labs, and three key state labs.
D-index (Discipline H-index) only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline in
contrast to General H-index which accounts for publications across all disciplines.
Our research was coordinated by Imed Bouchrika, PhD, a computer scientist with a well-established record
of collaboration on a number of international research projects with different partners from the academic
community. His role was to make sure all data remained unbiased, accurate, and up-to-date.
We list only scientists having D-Index >= 30 within the area of
