The UK ranks third in the world for producing highly cited scientific research, says Japan’s National Institute of Science and Technology Policy.

The Institute reviewed research papers published between 2013 and 2015.

The country with the largest proportion of highly cited scientific research papers is the USA which has 28.5% of the total.

Second comes China with 15.4% and third comes the UK with 6.2%.

Japan comes ninth – down from 7th in last year’s survey.

However, Japan ranks fourth in terms of total output, behind the USA, China and Germany.

The USA spent most on R&D spending $470 billion, followed by China which spent $380 billion with Japan third at $171 billion.
