Nanotechnologies output and impact

Background information

Over the past two decades, China's overall scientific research capabilities have been rapidly enhanced and has become the world’s leading power. Nanotechnology, as an essential subject, has made breakthrough progress both in quantity and quality. To further promote the development of nanoscience research, as well as recognize the opportunities and challenges in the field of nanoscience, it is essential (for researchers) to be based on the current status of nanoscience research , and to analyze the scope and impact of research outcomes, as well as to conduct horizontal comparison analysis on a global scale.

Big Data Analysis of Nanoscience Bibliometrics, Patent, and Funding Data (2000-2019) cover

National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, China (NCNST)

National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, China (NCNST), established in December 2003, is co-founded by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Ministry of Education as an institution dedicated to fundamental and applied researches in the field of nanoscience and technology, especially those with important potential applications. NCNST is operated under the supervision of the Governing Board and aims to become a world-class research center, as well as public technological platform and young talents training center in the field, and to act as an important bridge for international academic exchange and collaboration.

Analysis objectives and challenges

  • Evaluate the academic outputs and academic impact of nanoscience

  • Cross-field and academia-industry analysis

  • Identify the development factors of nanoscience

  • Global data comparison, transnational data comparison and analysis

Solutions

Given the strategic significance of Nanoscience and nanotechnology, it is essential to evaluate and predict its developmental trends. This report is based on the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, Elsevier's Scopus, along with the research evaluation platform SciVal. The funding and patent analysis data for the report is from Funding Institutional and PatentSight, respectively. This report provides an evaluation of Nanoscience's scientific output, role, contribution, and impact through bibliometric analysis, combined with big data indicators of Nanoscience scientific results and patents from 2000 to 2019.

  • Apply multiple indicators to analyze the effectiveness of data and quantify the scope and impact of research outcome

  • Identify research topics and research trends around the globe, and help researchers formulate research plans

  • Utilize global data to conduct differentiated instruction on institutions or individuals.

  • Recognize the disadvantages and highlight the advantages to understand performance and impact of scientific research

  • Explore potential partners and P1 candidates

  • Clarify how research supports practical applications and innovation

I have read the draft of the Nano Report, I could say that it is the most informative report of Nano I have ever seen. It is really a wonderful report, showing the innovative power and promotive power of nanoscience to almost all disciplines. These analyses themselves are also full of innovative ideas, different viewpoint, and different visions, comparing with any Nano Reports we have seen before. So, I do appreciate you for this great job.
