Just about every week, many of us scientists receive a barrage of e-mails from our scientometrist colleague Dr. Subbiah Arunachalam. A scientometrist is one who quantitatively analyses the scientific productivity of individual scientists, institutions and nations. His e-mails have two major themes.
One of them concerns "open access" of science publications - and argues passionately, and rightly, that scientific reports, papers and journals must be freely accessible to all across the world, and not be governed only by commercial interests.
The other set of e-mails tell us of the scientific productivity, policies adopted by various nations across the world and where we in India stand in the global arena of science and technology.
The other buzzword of science today is nanotechnology. China leads the world in the number of publications in the area of nanoscience and nanotech, with about 5,000 researchers and 600 companies engaged in the field. And we just saw how China launched the world's fastest passenger train, covering the distance of 1,070 km from Wuhan to Guangzhou in 2 hours 45 minutes.
