This report identifies the science and technology (S&T) core competencies of Brazil. After a brief background on Brazil’s R&D infrastructure and funding, it analyzes analyzes tens of thousands of research papers by Brazilian authors drawn from global databases [Science Citation Index (“SCI”) and Social Science Citation Index (“SSCI”), and the EI Compendex (“EC”)]. It also explores additional metrics and presentations to enrich the model and facilitate user access to the S&T intelligence they seek.
Additional interactive capabilities are offered for users who wish to probe “who is doing what” for topics of particular interest. The resulting profiles indicate Brazilian R&D strengths. These analyses show trends in Brazilian research and point to the leading research organizations. Selective data from other countries are included for contextual comparisons.
