An analysis of 53839 publications published by scientist during the time span of 1989 to 2014 and indexed by Web of Science online Database indicates that the publications output in the Photosynthesis Research. The Chinese Academic Sciences, Russian Academic Sciences and Australian National University were the most producers of research output in Photosynthesis. It is observed that its relative growth rates contracted progressively from 0.302 at 1989 to 0.116 in the year of 2014. The whole study period sample mean relative growth rate is 0.10. Contrary to this, the Doubling Time for publication of all sources in Photosynthesis research output decreased from 2.29 years in 1989 to 5.97 years in 2014. During the study period, doubling time value is 25.11 years. This work is to provide a profile of research in Photosynthesis research publications in global level.
