This measure is weighted to account for the disproportionate number of astronomy articles in the index. United States WFC: 17203.82; AC: 26639 When it comes to publishing in the world’s leading scientific journals, the United States is in a league of its own.
Since 2012, every paper published in 68 top-tier journals has been included in the Nature Index database.
The index tallies the number of articles (AC) published by universities and research institutions, and by extension, reveals the output of cities and countries.
