Authors: Khatun, Asma
Ahmed, S.M. Zabed
Issue Date: Jun-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
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 PubMed, Web of Science and Scopus 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 h-index on bibliographic data from Scopus. 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 h-index count indicates that Bangladesh tops the diarrhoeal research impact list in South Asia region.
