A bibliometric analysis was performed to assess the quantitative trend of Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) treatment research, including intravenous injection of indomethacin and surgery. The documents studied were retrieved from the Science Citation Index (SCI) for the period from 1991 to 2002. The publication pattern concerning authorship, collaboration, original countries, citation frequency, document type, language of publication, distribution of journals, page count and the most frequently cited papers were performed. The results indicated that either treatment was not the recent emphasis of PDA research. The publishing countries of both treatments have also denoted that these researches were mostly done in Europe and North America. Both surgery and drug treatments had few international collaboration papers. English was the dominant language, and collaboration of two to six authors was the most popular level of co-authorship.

Among bibliometricanalysis, micro-level approaches present a high policy interest. Not only are they useful for supporting research assessment processes (Sandström and Sandström 2009 ) but also as tools for the
Analysis of the Canadian publications in the field of aquaculture reveals that Canada is one of the word's major contributors in this area. This confirms that Canada's expertise in science and technology often finds its stimulus in its resource-based industries. Several bibliometric indicators were used to enlighten the peculiar features of the Canadian research system. These include the channels of communication used by scientists, the authorship pattern, the level of collaboration, the identification of the institutions in which the research is performed and the uneven research effort distribution inside the country. The relevance of such quantitative measures for science policy-making is emphasized. The present study shows how bibliometric analysis, by describing the actual strengths and weaknesses of Canadian research and identifying the agents of this research activity, might foster a better understanding of the Canadian research enterprise as a whole.

This study is a bibliometric analysis on ocean circulation-related research for the period 1991–2005. Selected documents included
“ocean circulation, sea circulation, seas circulation, marine circulation, and circulation ocean” as a part of the title,
abstract or keywords. Analyzed parameters included the document type, the article output, the article distribution in journals,
the publication activity of countries, and institutes and the authorship. An indicator, citation per publication (CPP) was
applied to evaluate the scientific impact of a publication. The relationship between cumulative articles and the year was
modeled. Three dominant categories were picked out, and their output increase was modeled. The USA was found to be leading
the research with 47% share of total articles, with a CPP up to 5.9. Woods Hole Oceanography Institute in the USA was the
most productive institute with a CPP of 6.8. In the citation analysis, a 5th year citation mode was found. A paper life model
was applied to compare the cumulative citations increasing rates of different years.

The purpose of this paper is to present the preliminary results of a bibliometric analysis of AIDS documents as produced on
Sub-Saharan Africa. AIDSLINE 1980-2000 was used to conduct the literature search. In this paper, an analysis was made only
of the records retrieved under "Central Africa". Bibexcel (version 2001) and Microsoft Excel (2000) were used as software
tools to conduct the analysis of the records. Seven countries and 1052 records were identified. Main participating countries
were Democratic Republic of the Congo (527 documents), and Cameroon (271). Results indicated a high pattern of collaboration
through multiple authorship. Most documents were published in English (84.50%) and French (14.73%). Over 57% corresponded
to journal articles. The subject content of the documents was mainly focused on epidemiological, complications, and prevention
& control issues on ‘HIV Infections’ and ‘Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome’. Countries behind this productivity were Cameroon,
USA, Democratic Republic of the Congo, France, and Belgium. Comparison of results among Central African countries and among
other developing countries is made by the authors.
