Trends in Pharmaceutical Scholarly Communications from India, China and United States a Comparative Study
The present study throws light on the scholarly communication of three leading countries in the field of pharmaceutical research as reflected in SCOPUS database during 1998-2017. In terms of publication output, United States with two leading Asian countries, China and India leads with 40.54 per cent share of the global research publication share in pharmaceutical sciences. The global outcome of scholarly communication in the field of pharmaceutical research is 1395221. The study mainly focuses both on qualitative and quantitative research growth of United States, China and India in terms of output of scholarly communication, citation impact, relative research effort, common sources used for publications and research collaboration. The growth pattern of three leading countries is highly chaotic. The relative research effort of India and China increased during 2008-2017 while in United States, it was decreased. Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry, Tetrahedron Letters and Tetrahedron are the common source of communication in these three countries. All the three countries show the positive shift in international collaboration during 1998-2002 to 2012-2017 in pharmaceutical research.
