Analysis of Pharmacy Related Publications, H-indices, and Patents of 102 Countries


The number of research publications, patents, and H-index values of each country in pharmacy related fields, could be used as scientometric indicators of pharmacy research and education. Methods: For this purpose we studied above mentioned factors for 102 counties consisting of; twenty finance ministers and central bank governors, European Union member countries, first twenty countries of the world in Human Development indices, Middle East countries, and members of Organization of the Islamic Conference. Scopus® was used to extract the bibliometric data. The correlation of some factors such as economical, educational, and research and development (R&D) indicators of the countries on the studied parameters were investigated. Results: The results of analyses showed that studied indicators are correlated with the number of publications, H-indices, and patents. This might suggest the possibility of the further researches in the field of mathematical representation in scientometrics. Conclusion: Research and development in pharmacy areas are affected by expenditure and the more the expenditure, the more the outcome of research and development.
