According to Clarivate Analytics, a U.K.-based analytical research group, China is becoming a global leader in science. The USA is still the leader but has seen a steady drop over the years.

China has a steady increase in the number of “high-impact scientists” than the United States and the number of highly cited Chinese researchers is doubled, Clarivate Analytics published.

The United States is the institutional home for 2,764 of the Highly Cited Researchers in 2022, which amounts to 38.3% of the total list, down from 43.3% in 2018. While the slow downward loss of share continues for U.S.-based Highly Cited Researchers, the U.S. clearly still leads the world in research influence.

Mainland China is second this year, with 1,169 Highly Cited Researchers – continuing to close the gap with the U.S. In five years, Mainland China has more than doubled its share of the Highly Cited Researchers population – from 7.9% in 2018 to 16.2% this year.
