S & T Publications from Bangalore City: A Scientometric Analysis


  • Institute for Social Economic Change (ISEC), Nagarabhavi - 560 072, Bangalore, India


Scientometric analysis of research publication from Bangalore city published between 2001-2015 shows that Indian Institute of Science has the highest number of publications but its share is coming down gradually. Also the share of Bangalore city's publications to Indian research publication is showing a declining trend. There is a healthy intracity and foreign collaboration among research institutions in Bangalore city. Research publications from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research are cited more often. It is encouraging to observe that the research publications are growing both quantitatively and qualitatively over the years.
