Science indicator up for Korea

Korea ranked 14th in the number of science and technology theses last year, presenting 15,705 theses. In the previous year, Korea ranked 15th. The Ministry of Science and Technology reported yesterday that Korean theses made up 2.1 percent of the 746,498 theses in the National Science Indicators, or NSI, at the Institute for Scientific Information. The NSI divides science and technology into five large sections, 18 middle sections and 80 detail sections. The large sections are engineering and computers; physics, chemistry and earth science; medical science, and agriculture, biology and environmental science. Korea ranked in the top 20 in 51 detail sections last year. Koreans presented 17 theses related to the engineering and computer section, 11 life science theses, seven in physics, chemistry and earth science, 14 in medical science and two in agriculture, biology and environmental science. The United States presented the most theses ― 253,215 ― and Japan followed with 69,290. Britain ranked third with 67,478 theses; Germany, China and France followed. by Shim Jae-woo
