There are various criteria that could be used to rate a tertiary institution. One of these is the productivity of the members of staff which is shown by the research conducted, publications submitted and manuscripts published in indexed journals.

Manuscripts submitted and published in one of the highly rated indexed journals in our locality were analysed with a view to identifying how the institutions add to knowledge by their contributions. Our findings show that the four top-rated institutions in terms of manuscripts published in West African Journal of Medicine (WAJM) are University College Hospital (UCH), lbadan, University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (OAUTH), and Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH)

Il y a des critères divers qu'on pourrait utiliser afin de classer; une institution tertière. L'un d'eux est la productivité des membres de personnel qui est indiqué par la recherche effectuée, publication soumise et les manuscrits publiés dans les journaux répertoriés. Les manuscrits soumis et publiés dans l'un des journaux répertoriés fortement classé dans notre milieu ont été analysés afin d'identifier common les intitutions apportent grand choses à la connaissance à travers leurs contributions.

Nos résultats montrent que les quatre institutions hautement classées du point de vue des manuscrits publiés dans le Journal Ouest Africain des Medecine (JOAM) sont Collège hospitalier universitaire, Ibadan (CHU), centre hospitalier universitaire d'Ilorin (CHUI), centre hospitalier universitaire d'Obafemi Awolowo (CHUOA) et centre hospitalier universitaire de Jos (CHUJ)
