China Net / China Development Portal News According to the latest Nature Index released by Nature Publishing Group, the contribution of Chinese scientific research institutions to global science has increased significantly in recent years. This increase is not only reflected in quantity but also in quality. . At present, China ranks third in the world in the number of high-quality scientific papers published internationally, second only to the United States and the European Union, and accounts for more than 14% of the world. In the 1980s, this proportion was less than 1%. This should be attributed to China's high emphasis on scientific research and increasing investment, with an average annual growth rate of 20% in the past ten years.
According to the "Weighted Score Counting Method" (WFC) index established by Nature Publishing Group, the high-quality scientific paper published by the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2013 totaled 1209.46 points, which is 357.34 points higher than the second-ranked Harvard University in the United States. The Max Planck Society of Germany has a score of 480.82 points, which is 488.84 points higher than that of the French Scientific Research Center, ranking first in the world's scientific research institutions. Especially in the fields of chemistry, physics, earth, and environmental sciences, the Chinese Academy of Sciences tops the list; in the field of life sciences, the Chinese Academy of Sciences ranks fourth, behind Harvard University, the National Institutes of Health and Stanford University, but at the French research center And before the Max Planck Society.
WFC was founded in a long time by a large number of world-class scientists invited by Nature Publishing Group. The index method records each author's contribution to the paper as "1 / N" points, rather than all "1" points, based on the number of authors N in each scientific paper. The question of trade-offs can better reflect the contribution of an author, institution, and country to the world's sciences.
In 2013, the Chinese Academy of Sciences published 2,661 high-quality scientific papers in 68 globally recognized scientific journals of the highest quality (including journals such as Nature, Science, and Cell), ranking the middle place among global scientific research institutions. Ranked third, only after the French National Centre for Scientific Research (4585) and the Max Planck Society (3023), before Harvard University (2555).
The number of scientific papers published by the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Nature and Science, two of the world's top scientific journals, has grown extremely rapidly, nearly doubled from the previous year, which illustrates the huge potential of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to publish the highest-level scientific papers.(Responsible editor: admin)
