Description

  •  13/03/2018

Evolution of the production of scientific and academic articles, reviews and conference papers, per year of publication and authors' affiliation country. The number of inhabitants was sourced from Eurostat 'Population and social conditions database' (population on 1 January).

The figures were worked out using Elsevier's Scopus bibliometric database (www.scopus.com). Inter year variations may partly arise from widening of the database coverage.

The figures for 2017 are a preliminary result, as a significant amount of new material can still be expected to be added to the Scopus database.
