Science in the Netherlands, 2009-2013
The Netherlands’ world share of science and social-science papers over a recent five-year period, ranked according to percentage of papers in each of 21 main fields indexed by Thomson Reuters. Also, the Netherlands’ relative citation impact compared to the world average in each field, in percentage terms. These figures are derived from Thomson Reuters InCites, a subset of the Web of Science.
|Field||Percentage of papers from the Netherlands||Number of papers from the Netherlands||Relative impact compared to world average in field (%)|
|Economics & Business||4.32||4,998||+31|
|Neuroscience & Behavior||3.99||9,123||+32|
|Molecular Biology & Genetics||3.43||6,684||+67|
|The Netherlands' overall percent share, all fields: 2.63|
|Pharmacology & Toxicology||2.31||3,947||+35|
|Biology & Biochemistry||2.18||7,001||+34|
|Plant & Animal Science||2.14||6,903||+72|
Between 2009 and 2013, Thomson Reuters indexed 169,980 papers that listed at least one author address in the Netherlands. Of those papers, the highest percentage appeared in journals classified under the main heading of Space Science, followed by Psychiatry/Psychology and Economics & Business.
As the right-hand column shows, the citations-per-paper average, or impact, of Space Science papers featuring Netherlands-based authors was 59% above the world average for the field (15.32 citations per paper for the Netherlands versus the world mark of 9.61 citations). The nation actually exceeded the world impact average in all the fields shown here, notably in Materials Science (90% above the world mark), Physics (84% above), and Clinical Medicine (+78% above).
