The G20 economies are a leading force in the global research system. Together, they represent more than 80% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and two-thirds of the global population. This annual report from the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)™ gives a visual comparative snapshot for each of the 19 members of the G20 (the EU is the 20th member), covering a wide range of research performance metrics.
The research profiles within the report are selective, highlighting chosen topics of current policy interest that identify good signals of the health of the research base for each G20 member. Key factors that contribute to impactful research are laid out in the report and benchmarked.
