Since the year 2005, East African research output has grown rapidly and the region represents a solid scientific environment that is playing an increasingly important role in global science. 

In our latest report, we find that the normalized citation impact of seven East African countries is above the world average of 1.
One reason for this is that all of these countries have a high percentage of internationally co-authored papers. These papers are usually cited higher than intranational collaborations or collaborations within a city proving that involvement in the international research process is very important for East African nation. 

While the available resources for conducting research differ from country to country, it is clear that a proper focus on organizing an effective research ecosystem can result in noticeable 
growth of a country’s scientific prestige.
