Scientific publications, international benchmark (WoS)

The indicator shows for the Netherlands and several benchmark countries, the absolute and relative number of scientific publications, as registered in the Web of Science database by Clarivate Analytics.

The Netherlands occupies a position in the middle when the absolute number of scientific publications is concerned. When this number is standardised by the number of public sector researchers (FTE), the Netherlands ranks second in the benchmark, after Switzerland.
