Abstract: Quantitative analysis is carried out to identify the literature growth, authorship pattern, collaboration and journal distribution on diarrhoeal disease research in Bangladesh based on data obtained from <i>PubMed</i>, <i>Web of Science </i>and <i>Scopus</i> databases. Well-established bibliometric laws, such as Lotka’s law and Bradford’s law are employed to further explore the characteristics of diarrhoeal literature. Bradford-Zipf distribution is applied to determine the core journals on diarrhoeal disease research in Bangladesh. Moreover, a comparison was made to determine the strength of diarrhoeal research in Bangladesh using <i>h</i>-index on bibliographic data from <i>Scopus</i>. The result shows increasing R&D activities on diarrhoeal research in Bangladesh. Lotka’s law and Bradford distribution do not apply to diarrhoeal disease research in Bangladesh. The <i>h</i>-index count indicates that Bangladesh tops the diarrhoeal research impact list in South Asia region.
