From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Italy has a long tradition in science and technology, or scientotechnology, going back to the Renaissance and the Roman era.

According to National Science Indicators (1981-2002), a database produced by Research Services Group containing listings of output and citation statistics for more than 90 countries, Italy has an above-average output of scientific papers (in terms of number of papers written with at least one author being from Italy) in space science (9.75% of papers in the world being from Italy), mathematics (5.51% of papers in the world), computer science, neurosciences, and physics; the lowest, but still slightly above world-average, output in terms of number of papers produced is recorded in the social sciences, psychology and psychiatry, and economics and business.[1]

In terms of impact factor, Italy has an above-average record in physics (+24 points above the world-average), psychology and psychiatry (+21 points), and space science (+18); the academic disciplines in which Italy scores a lower impact factor related to the world average include economics and business (-23 points below world-average), biology and biochemistry (-21 points), microbiology (-20), and molecular biology (-20).[1]
