Chi­nese uni­ver­si­ties have dom­i­nated a list of in­sti­tu­tions with the fastest-grow­ing share of re­search pub­lished in a group of pres­ti­gious jour­nals. Half of the top 100 in­sti­tu­tions in Na­ture In­dex’s Ris­ing Stars ta­ble – and all but one of the top 10 – hail from the coun­try, un­der­lin­ing the rapid in­crease in China’s high-qual­ity re­search out­put. The Ris­ing Stars ta­ble looks at the 100 uni­ver­si­ties and re­search in­sti­tutes whose rel­a­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the pres­ti­gious nat­u­ral science jour­nals in the Na­ture In­dex in­creased the most from 2015 to 2017 based on their “frac­tional count” of au­thor­ships in each pa­per.
