U.S. science and technology capability remains strong

NSF reports today:

Number of U.S. science and engineering (S&E) articles in major peer-reviewed journals flattened

Four Asian societies--China, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan--out-distanced all others in the world between 1992 and 2003 with an average annual growth rate of 15.9 percent in publications.

According to the report, Japan's article output rose at an average annual rate of 3.1 percent, five times faster than the United States.

The European Union, which passed the U.S. several years ago in total numbers of articles published, posted an average annual growth rate of 2.8 percent during the same period, more than four times faster than the United States.

What about Egypt article output? Is it increasing? How much?
