Nature Index Annual Tables 2022: China’s Research Spending pays off

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Jun 23, 2022 | Nature Index ,

While many Western researchers have denounced the pressure to keep producing papers, saying it creates a toxic workplace culture, the heavy emphasis on publishing papers for career progression could partly explain China’s dominance in the list of fastest-rising institutions. This Nature Index still places the United States at the top position with a share of 19,857.35 for 2021, but its adjusted share fell by 6.2 percent in 2021, the steepest fall since 2015. China is in second place with a share of 16,753.86, Its 14.4 percent growth in adjusted share in 2021 is the largest such increase among the ten leading  countries in the 2022 Annual Tables. Beijing’s growing investment in research and development, which accounted for 2.4 percent of the country’s GDP in 2021, is a major factor in China’s rise. Given the consistent investment in  research and development in China, this year’s strong performance could be a harbinger of what is to come.
