Russia left 10-ku leaders in scientific publications. Nanotechnology is limping
It is customary to judge the state of affairs in the science of a country both by the level of technology development and by the number of publications in major scientific journals. Today publications are monitored in the format of indexing by the base of scientific journals and Web of Science resources. In recent years, Russia has consistently been among the top ten countries in the world — the leaders in the number of scientific publications of an international level. At the same time, the president set an ambitious task for the scientific community to raise the bar and hit the Russian Federation in the top five by 2024.

At the same time, the representative of the trade union committee of the Russian Academy of Sciences noted that at the moment there is a single scientific field in which the publication activity of Russian scientists puts Russia in the top five. This is a field of physics and mathematics. It is noted that these are the results of the existence of the strongest physical and mathematical school of the USSR.
A significant lag was observed in such areas of science as artificial intelligence and nanotechnology. This is in the presence of a huge profile corporation - Rosnano, which spends tens of billions of rubles on its projects, which the same physics and mathematics school of the Russian Federation never dreamed of.
