darioizzo on 2012-01-25Did you know that papers in space science are among the most quoted? Check how your country is doing .... you will be surprised :)
dejanpetkow on 2012-01-26In terms of country based quotations ("Most scited countries") I cannot access space science, only Geosciences, Immunology, Material Science, and Psychiatry & Psychology.
But when I first saw the list of countries at the left under "Impact in Science" I saw Argentinia was on top, and USA was on last position. Yes, I was surprised, until I realised that is was just an alphabetical order.
Did you see the same list?
theasarya on 2012-01-26scotland's a separate country. must be preparing for independence already. and it's highest percentage is for space science. crazy
darioizzo on 2012-01-26Dajan, you need to click on the country you are interested in ....
dejanpetkow on 2012-01-26Nooo, can't be THAT simple.
leopolds on 2012-01-26data a bit old ....
newer data (but less well presented) at http://sciencewatch.com/
there you can also read:
"The 20th century was largely dominated by the US as a major powerhouse of scientific research and innovation, with 40% of the papers indexed in the Web of Science fielded by US scientists in the 1990s. By 2009, that figure was down to 29%. The US now struggles to keep pace with increased output from Europe and Asia."

digimince on 2012-01-30Interestingly, Space Science is the only field in which my country has positive "Impact vs. world" value (even more interestingly as we don't even have a proper national space agency)...
leopolds on 2012-01-30this might also be an indication / point to an issue with their data concerning space science publications ... quite surprising indeed that all Europeans are doing so well in this field
jmlloren on 2012-02-01Something should be wrong, for Spain I can read:
Economics & Business 4.54 -28
Only minus 28!
