Research Productivity from Asia in Parkinson’s DiseaseAuthor : Dimple Gopi and B. Asha
Volume 9 No.2 April-June 2019 pp 33-35
The paper analyses the literature produced in Parkinson’s research during the last decade (2008-2017) from the Asian countries using scientometric methods. The data was taken from the ISI Web of Science. Using Microsoft excel the data was analyzed. There was no correlation between productivity and impact factor. Though China is found to be ahead of all Asian countries in productivity, its impact factor is less than Japan and Israel. Open access articles were cited more than limited access articles.
