Wisconsin #6 in social sciences, #3 in communication

Thomson Reuters just ranked UW-Madison as the 6th most-cited institution in the social sciences. This ranking is based on the citation counts between 1998 and 2008 for all disciplinary papers published in ISI's Social Science Citation Index, and lists Wisconsin ahead of schools like Johns Hopkins, Columbia, Yale, Stanford, Penn, Chicago, and Berkeley.

ISI also puts Communication at Wisconsin in the top-three again, based on the number of papers to the field of communication over the last five years.
