With the fast development of its economy, China plays an increasingly important role in the world. China's performance in science is also impressive. The exponential growth of Chinese scientific publications provides evidence.

With the data for 2007 being now available, we provide an update on this issue and conclude that China has become the second largest producer of scientific publications since 2006.
