Global science research: Paper tigers

Emerging scientific nations are gaining influence, as measured by how often their researchers get cited in peer-reviewed journals.

China and Spain, with 4% and 3% of global citations in 2004-2008, respectively,

Australia and Switzerland out of the top ten for the previous five years.

Countries like the United States and Britain retain the the most clout, though (UK only 8.1%, not very far from China).
