CURRENT SCIENCE, VOL. 94, NO. 7, 10 APRIL 2008

Not only China and India, but also South Korea and Singapore are moving forward rapidly. The growth of science in these countries and investments in research made in Brazil and South Africa are leading to a new equilibrium in global science and technology.
