Las matemáticas españolas aprueban por primera vez en impacto internacional

A principios de los años 80, la producción de artículos matemáticos españoles en ISI era de un escaso 0,3%. Desde entonces, la disciplina ha experimentado un extraordinario impulso, de tal manera que se ha convertido en la cuarta en producción relativa en el último quinquenio, tal y como se puede ver en este cuadro Science in Spain 2004-2008 extraído de Web of Science:

Between 2004 and 2008, Thomson Reuters indexed 167,402 papers that listed at least one author address in Spain. Of those papers, the highest percentage appeared in journals classified under the heading of agricultural sciences, followed by space science and microbiology. Spain’s relative impact in agricultural sciences, as the right-hand column indicates, was 19% above the world average for the five-year period (3.39 citations per paper for Spain versus the world mark of 2.86 cites). The impact of Spanish research also exceeded the world average in several other of the fields above, notably in physics (37% above the world mark), chemistry (15% above), space science (+14%), engineering (+14%), and materials science (+12%).
