3. Scientific Publications by Institution Categories

Greek Institutions were classified into 8 instead of 11 categories (as in the study’s previous edition). Specifically, the categories “MOD Hospitals”, “Banks”, “Museums” were no longer presented as separate categories (as in the study’s previous edition) and institutions of these categories were included in other categories –in terms of their status-.
