    Nature is one of the most prestigious science journals in the world. For the first time, China has published more papers in Nature than Japan. The key metric is the "corrected count" (or CC). The CC makes the proper adjustment to divide credit on joint research collaboration among countries.

    China is responsible for 419 articles that Nature accepted for publication. Japan trails at a distant 331.

    This is a momentous shift as China claims the crown of the top rank on the Nature Publishing Index (NPI) for the Asia-Pacific region.
