21 Dec. 2019. China now leads all other countries in the sheer output of papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals, according to data from National Science Foundation. The findings, displayed yesterday by our friends from Statista, is the Science & Enterprise infographic for this weekend.

The NSF report, part of the agency’s Science and Engineering Indicators series, shows more than 528,000 scientific papers from China were published in 2018, accounting for 21 percent of the total, eclipsing the nearly 423,000 papers from the U.S. that account for 16.5 percent. India follows with 136,000 and Germany with 104,000 publications. Taken together, however, European Union countries published some 622,000 scientific papers, about a quarter of all papers in 2018, and exceeding the number from China.

NSF says research output worldwide over the past 10 years, measured in journal articles and conference papers, expanded at a rate of 4 percent per year. China turns out scientific papers at twice the rate of the rest of the world, while the U.S. and European Union countries publish papers at about half of the worldwide rate. And while the U.S., Japan, and EU countries publish more research from the life sciences and health, China and India tend to publish more studies on engineering.
