U.S. Losing More Ground in Academia

In 1970, about 70% of the papers in the IEEE "Transactions" were written by authors from U.S. industry - the Bells, IBMs, RCAs and GEs. In 1990, only 15% originated for those sources.

Slightly more than half of the papers from academia came from universities outside the U.S., and most of those come from graduate students with little or no industry experience. As more and more of our technology and associated research moves overseas, the trend can be expected to continue.
