Armenian scientists work wonders for peanuts

09:14, 04.03.2011 Region: World News, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia Theme: Society, Innovations

Not only Armenian scientists, but also the entire nation, can be proud of the UNESCO-released 2010 report on world science, the Hayots Ashkharh (Armenian World) newspaper reports.

The report shows that Armenians scientists, with their modest earnings, are internationally recognized due to their talent and hard work.

Specifically, 2000 to 2008 Armenia ranked second among the Central and Western Asia countries in terms of scientific articles in the most authoritative international scientific journals, Israel being the leader.

Armenian scientists left their Georgian and Azerbaijani counterparts behind. In 2008, Armenian scientists published 544 scientific articles, and their Georgian and Azerbaijani counterparts 328 and 292 respectively.

U.S. and Japanese scientists get real money for their papers, whereas their Armenian counterparts work for peanuts.

Specifically, Armenian scientists` "efficiency" is 10 to 15 times as high as that of their leading counterparts in the world. Despite their low salaries, Armenian scientists achieve results that are numerous returns on the investments made.
