This paper provides a quantitative assessment of the scientific literature for mapping the intellectual structure of Renewable Biomass research in India and its scientific development over 20 years (1999-2018). A total of 691 publications were subjected to examination. The study characterizes top (cited and downloaded) papers, citation patterns, most frequent topic clusters, and keywords, and social mentions by country, discipline, and professional status. The results highlight some areas of improvement in this field of study. This study also reveals a lot of well-established topics which are changing gradually with impact on citations and downloads. Statistical models and analysis give the result that the field is predominantly influenced by fundamental and highly recognized scientists and papers. The analysis was conducted using HistCite software.
