BRICS countries Improve their Research Footprint; India is yet to wake up

International Policy

It is shown that in 2010, the total number of publications from BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) exceeded the number of publications from the US, and in 2014 they almost equaled those from the 28 countries of the EU. In 2015, BRICS researchers produced nearly 29% of the global publications cited in Scopus (versus 10.7% in 2010), of which 18% came from China, 5% from India, 2.6% each from Russia and Brazil, and 0.72% from South Africa.

China has made huge leap in the number of publications during last 15 years: from 4.3% in 2000 to 18.0% in 2015. Russia also has registered an increase of 50.8% during the same period.

China tops the list in many areas, such as Chemistry, Computer Science, Energy, Engineering, Mathematics, and Chemical Engineering, while other BRICS countries rank high in some areas but not in others.Russia leads in five areas: Physics and Astronomy; Economics, Econometrics and Finance; Earth and Planetary Sciences; Mathematics, and Materials Science.
