Another survey showed that China was ahead of the qualities as well as the qualities of scientific papers.

According to the recently published ‘Science and Technology Index 2002′ published by the Institute of Science and Technology Policy (NISTEP), a Japanese government research institute, 27.2% of the top 1% of papers cited in 2018-2020 were 27.2%. The United States was second with 24.9%.

It is also said that China’s trend is solidifying not only in the number of papers but also in quality. Caroline Wagner, who studies scientific policies at Ohio State University, told Science, Chinese scientists write a lot of papers, but the quality of the paper is not good.

According to Science, China first surpassed the United States in the number of papers in 2016. However, among the most cited papers at the time, Chinese papers were 6.4%, far behind the United States (41.2%).

China is one of the best countries in the world in both the amount and quality of scientific papers, said NISTEP Kurogi Shinichi Asia-Pacific Institute. To become a true global leader, we must continue to produce internationally recognized papers.

This trend has been confirmed in our survey. According to a report published by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) in April, China has blood in most research fields in ‘physical science and engineering’ and ‘mathematics and computer science’. It was ranked first in the top 1% of the quote.

Of the 10 areas of analysis, including computers and information science, physics and astronomy, chemistry, life sciences, electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, materials engineering, nanotechnology, and clinical medicine, the United States was the only field of life science and clinical medicine. In the remaining eight areas, China surpassed the United States in 2017-2019, the top 10% of the thesis, and the top 1% of the top 1%.


The injury of China’s science and technology capacity is one of the reasons why the United States is alert and checks China. China is especially strong in the field of future core technologies such as artificial intelligence and quantum computing and to have an important impact on national security.

The United States has recently passed the semiconductor science law, which has allocated a $ 280 billion budget for the semiconductor industry support and science and technology support. This law is also considered as the biggest focusing business of the Biden administration.
