Last week's Japan news


Japan Statistics

Only two percent of Japanese researchers plan on working overseas. That news is from a survey conducted by the Education, Science and Technology Ministry.

Two thousand authors of papers published in leading academic journals were sent a questionnaire, of which 1,036 replied. 11% already had had overseas experience; however, a more typical reply was that they "do not have any contact with overseas research institutions."

The US is currently seeing a rise in the number of researchers coming from China and South Korea. While China sent 24,000 researchers to the US in 2007, Japan had just 5,700.
