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.


Analysis
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 first in the benchmark.

63% of the Dutch publications in the period 2015-2018 have a Dutch first author. This is less than the 71% for the period 2005-2008.
