I was able to merge and plot country-level publication data (from
SCImago) with economic data from the World Bank (GNI per capita, PPP).
The result shows China -- and to a lesser extent, India, S. Korea and
Brazil -- going through massive scientific growth. You can view that
growth in a blog post, which includes a link to a dynamic time-series
bubble plot. see:
Thanks for everyone's response for my data request, and especially to
Carlos Olmeda-Gómez from the SCImago Research Group.
