This makes for a nice follow-up to the previously posted Large Hadron Collider story.
Sciencewatch is a global database that tracks scientific publications, papers and citations. Last month, Pakistan topped the list of countries with the biggest percentage increase in citations. Pakistan leads in the largest number of categories when compared to any other country. These categories include Computer Science, Engineering, Math and Materials Science.
Citations are not only a measure of the volume of work being done, but also its quality. You don’t get cited until you’ve published a piece of work of relevance to the wider community, or important to the development of your field of research. So we’re especially happy that it’s not just the volume of our scientists’ output, but also the excellence of the work that’s getting recognized. Bravo! The link and the complete table after the fold.
