Savitha M, Bagalkoti Vitthal T.


Analyses the Indian publications output of agriculture research in comparison with select productive countries using parameters like overall contribution, growth pattern, citation impact, and international collaboration. Identifies important countries collaborating with India and productivity and impact of leading Indian institutions and authors. The Web of Science Citation database was used to retrieve the data for 10 years by searching the keywords ‘Agriculture Research’ in combined Title, Abstract and Keywords fields. The world output was 3,72,458. Indian publications output in Agriculture research consisted of 24358 papers during ten-year period studied. Publication increased from 2414 papers to 2365. A decrease was also found during years in between. The share of Indian overall agriculture research was 11.56% during the ten-year period. The study found that Indian out put on agriculture research is quite low in the global context as reflected from its publications output. The impact and quality of Indian research was also found to be low compared to select developed and developing countries.
