Australasia world leader in autism research
Results show Australasian researchers are delivering results for the autistic community with our research output being much greater than would be expected. In a recent bibliographic analysis, it was found that two Australiasian sites, Australia and Japan, provide much more research related to autism than would be expected on the basis of their population size. Australia was 4th in world and Japan was 8th for Autism Research. For more details, see https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
