Abstract  

[Objective] This study analyzes the Essential Science Indicators (ESI) of highly cited papers, aiming to assess scientific outcomes of research projects sponsored by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). [Methods] We compared the total number and citations of highly cited articles sponsored by NSFC, U.S. funding, other Chinese funding, or no funding. [Results] The number of highly cited papers sponsored by NSFC soared from 2009 to 2018, which was still less than those supported by the U.S. funding. More than 80% of Highly Cited Papers from China were funded by NSFC. [Limitations] We only studied highly cited papers in English. [Conclusions] NSFC plays significant role in promoting scientific publication and influence expansion.
