This map shows the growth in scientific research of territories between 1990 and 2001. If there was no increase in scientific publications that territory has no area on the map.

In 1990, 80 scientific papers were published per million people living in the world, this increased to 106 per million by 2001. This increase was experienced primarily in territories with strong existing scientific research. However, the United States, with the highest total publications in 2001, experienced a smaller increase since 1990 than that in Japan, China, Germany and the Republic of Korea. Singapore had the greatest per person increase in scientific publications.

"Singapore is engaging robustly in the materials science research, as we position ourselves for the global, knowledge-driven economy, and for our next phase of development as a society." Tharman Shanmugaratnam, 2003

Territory size shows the proportion of the number of extra scientific papers that were published in 2001 compared with 1990, whose authors work there.
