diminished position. The study found evidence of an increasing concentration in research output and excellence among the top institutions in the US. The 61 US members of the Association of American Universities (AAU), for example, now account for 56 percent of US output in the five-year period ending in 2009. The report's authors question whether such concentration, in comparison to other countries, is the most effective strategy for the US to maintain its historical leadership in science.
