The current status of science around the world is investigated in the UNESCO Science Report 2010

On the World Science Day for Peace and Development, celebrated every year on 10 November, UNESCO launched its Science Report 2010. The official presentation took place in all UNESCO member-states.

The Science Report was written by a team of international experts. It is heavily reliant on the expertise of 35 authors invited to write about the main trends and developments in scientific research, innovation and higher education in the country or region from which they hail. The Report presents an overview of global trends in science and technology, based on a wide range of qualitative and quantitative indicators. It is divided into chapters devoted to the various regions, with spotlights on certain individual countries (Brazil, Canada, China, Cuba, India, Iran, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, Turkey and USA). The previous UNESCO science reports were published in 1993, 1996, 1998 and 2005.
