1. For each discipline, the sum of the administrative regions does not necessarily add up to the annual total for the whole of Québec due to possible interregional collaboration.
2. Data partially incomplete; the number of scientific publications in 2012 should be revised upwards (by about 10%) at the time of the publication of the figures for 2013.
