Handful of U.S. Schools Claim Larger Share of Output

Source: Science 19 November 2010: vol. 330 no. 6007 1032

I quote:
The report (GLOBAL RESEARCH REPORT, USA © 2010 THOMSON REUTERS) documents the growth by Asian and European nations in overall research productivity. It notes that the 27-member European Union surpassed the United States in 1995 and remains ahead, and that the Asian-Pacific countries did likewise for the first time in 2008 as part of their explosive growth (see first figure). It also finds that U.S. scientists work disproportionately in the health and social sciences when compared with the rest of the world (see second figure).
