LONDON, Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarivate
Plc (NYSE:CLVT), a global leader in providing trusted
information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation,
today launched its annual report which examines the research
performance of each of the members of the G20 with a visual
comparative snapshot for each.
The report, The Annual G20 Scorecard – Research
Performance 2022, has been created by the Institute for
Scientific Information™ at Clarivate to coincide with this year's
G20 Summit hosted by Bali. It
includes both a written summary and an array of graphs and exhibits
that highlight the research performance
of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada,
Mainland China, France,
India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi
Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey,
the United Kingdom and the United States.
Jonathan Adams, Chief Scientist
at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate and a
co-author of the annual report said: "Our Annual G20 Scorecard
provides a consistent benchmark of regional research economies for
governments, funders and research institutions.
"The yearly assessment of comparative metrics allows us to
accurately compare performance and to spot early warning signs of
any changes to investment, as the G20 respond to the climate and
health challenges of the future."
The research profiles within the report are selective,
highlighting chosen topics of current policy interest that identify
good signals of the health of the research base for each G20
member. Key factors that contribute to impactful research are laid
out for each and benchmarked.
Some key findings include:
- Australian international impact continuing to be
the highest among the G20 at 1.67. Output continues to rise, driven
by the mathematical and physical sciences, where output has
doubled, and engineering, where output has trebled in the last
- Mainland China's output
has tripled in a decade, with more than a third of a million papers
published in the mathematical and physical sciences (including
chemistry and materials science) in 2021 alone. Impact is above the
world and G20 averages. Much of this output, however, is domestic;
consistently only a quarter is internationally collaborative.
- In Saudi Arabia more
than four-fifths of all output is now internationally
collaborative, with the total output having more than doubled
between 2018 and 2021. This leads to an impact well above world
- Research expenditure in South
Korea is the highest in the G20 with GERD per GDP at
4.8% and patents per BERD is also high. Productivity, however,
- The United Kingdom's
research impact is strong, with even domestic impact performing
better than the overall G20 average in the Impact Profile. Even so,
by 2021, more than two-thirds of output was international. Open
Access is above average and strong in most disciplines, except for
- The United States'
collaborative impact is highest among the G20, although other
countries have a higher Category Normalized Citation Impact (CNCI).
Like the U.K., and in contrast to most other countries, domestic
collaborative impact is higher than that for international

The G20 is a group of 19 leading economies, with the European
Union (EU) as the additional 20th member.
Collectively the 19 members of the G20 represent two-thirds of the
world's population, produce 80% of global GDP, spend 93% of global
R&D, employ 89% of the world's researchers and publish 83% of
the global research papers indexed in the Web of Science™ with more
than five million articles and reviews indexed for the last three
