Iran 2010: Glimpse of Recent Iranian Science and Technology

Song performed by Third Generation of 1979 (TGO 1979). New Scientist Magazine: Iran showing fastest scientific growth of any country. It might be the Chinese year of the tiger, but scientifically, 2010 is looking like Iran’s year.

Scientific output has grown 11 times faster in Iran than the world average, faster than any other country. A survey of the number of scientific publications listed in the Web of Science database shows that growth in the Middle East mostly in Turkey and Iran is nearly four times faster than the world average.

Science-Metrix, a data-analysis company in Montreal, Canada, has published a detailed report (PDF) on “geopolitical shifts in knowledge creation” since 1980. “Asia is catching up even more rapidly than previously thought, Europe is holding its position more than most would expect, and the Middle East is a region to watch,” says the report’s author, Eric Archambault.

World scientific output grew steadily, from 450,000 papers a year in 1980 to 1,500,000 in 2009. Asia as a whole surpassed North America last year.

Nuclear, nuclear, nuclear
Archambaut notes that Iran’s publications have emphasised inorganic and nuclear chemistry, nuclear and particle physics and nuclear engineering. Publications in nuclear engineering grew 250 times faster than the world average although medical and agricultural research also increased.

Science-Metrix also predicts that this year, China will publish as many peer-reviewed papers in natural sciences and engineering as the US. If current trends continue, by 2015 China will match the US across all disciplines although the US may publish more in the life and social sciences until 2030.

China’s prominence in world science is known to have been growing, but Science-Metrix has discovered that its output of peer-reviewed papers has been growing more than five times faster than that of the US.

Meanwhile, “European attitudes towards collaboration are bearing fruit”, writes Archambaut. While Asia’s growth in output was mirrored by North America’s fall, Europe, which invests heavily in cross-border scientific collaboration, held its own, and now produces over a third of the world’s science, the largest regional share. Asia produces 29 per cent and North America 28 per cent.

Scientific output fell in the former Soviet Union after its collapse in 1991 and only began to recover in 2006. Latin America and the Caribbean together grew fastest of any region, although its share of world science is still small. Growth in Oceania, Europe and Africa has stayed at about the same rate over the past 30 years. Only North American scientific output has grown “considerably slower” than the world as a whole.

“The number of papers is a first-order metric that doesn’t capture quality,” admits Archambaut. There are measures for quality, such as the number of times papers are cited, and “Asian science does tend to be less cited overall”.

But dismissing the Asian surge on this basis is risky, he feels. “In the 1960s, when Japanese cars started entering the US market, US manufacturers dismissed their advance based on their quality” but then lost a massive market share to Japan. The important message, he says, is that “Asia is becoming the world leader in science, with North America progressively left behind”.

@bmwnasher Thats funny. Because all of our West technology was invented by European-Christian-Nationalist ie ( Nazis ) before and during the Zionist created 2-WW.

From Stealth, to Jets to Space capable Rockets, to Cruise Missiles and Night Vision and the Assault Rifle.
Funny isn't it.
I am an American, and I know that the Globalism Israel-US-UK-UN-All Led By Jews stole all of this stuff.
I hope Iran defends their Nation against the Global-Empire.

i wish i could help u as shia muslim to devlope stealth technology and develope hi sensitive radars that can detect any threat from air…for more info just msg me

the un has regulations agaist using weapons that the common man, myself included, dont even know exists–whateve iran has, the us army can counter–and there is more than meets the eye–iran, iraq, both are supposed space ports for the anunaki—dont know if there is any truth to this, but there is more than meets the eye here–i dont know if the illuminati controls iran or not–this war may be just a way of killing off the male population and distraction for new social order

@hmspervasive this comment is so misleading. yes you probably are but you are only playing catchup with the west its easy for you. its already been invented

long live iran zamin and the iri every thing we have we owe to our shahids never forget them.
shaheedan zende and allaho akbar

Iran has the fastest growth rate in science and technology in the world. Google: " International rankings of Iran " and look for wikipedia page.

Yeah, especially how Iraq has suffered from the crazy Imperialists >_>. Iraq was a great country.
