A large part of new technologies and services is based on developments and results from science. The latter can be assessed by means of scientific publications. These scientific achievements can be further analysed and evaluated using bibliometric indicators.
In this indicator category, the scientific performance of selected countries is described using bibliometric evaluations. This involves determining a country's research performance based on the share of scientific publications by its scientists in worldwide scientific publications. The perception and significance of these publications is recorded using the excellence rate based on their citations.
