The greatest number of publications was attributed to the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens/UOA and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki/AUTH - the country’s largest Higher Education Institutions - with 2,533 and 1,839 publications in 2010 respectively (Figure 4.1.1). These were followed by 6 other Universities with more than 400 publications in 2010: the University of Patras/UOP (1,006 publications), the National Technical University of Athens/NTUA (859), the University of Crete/UOC (841), the University of Ioannina/UOI (818), the University of Thessaly/UTH (559) and the Demokritos University of Thrace/DUTH (491). The remaining Universities produced 261 or less publications in 2010.

There was a growth trend in the number of publications by Universities from 1996 to 2009, which leveled off for some of them in 2010. However, it has been a steady rise for the Harokopio University of Athens/HUA, the University of Central Greece, while the publications of the Universities of Ioannina, Thessaly, Piraeus, Western Macedonia, as well as the Demokritos University of Thrace, marked an increase for most of the period, as shown in Figure 4.1.1.
