Clarivate is a data analysis company that handles scientific literature, and it makes senseto correlate highly cited papers with the probability of winning a Nobel prize. Several publishers also make polls for Noble predictions, which are quite popular, but the success rate not very high. Atthe end, we just have to wait two more weeks.

And remember, Nobel prizes in science are typically awarded for research done 20 years ago or so, so it doesn’t necessarily reflect the scientific power of a country.
