China has overtaken the US in world leader in both scientific research research results and “high impact”, according to a report published by the Japanese science as well as technology ministry.
Report published by the National Institute of Japan of Science and Technology Policy (NISTP) on Tuesday, found what China is now publishing highest amount of scientific research newspapers annually, followed by the US and Germany.
