SCIENTOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF DIABETES RESEARCH OUTPUT DURING THE YEAR 2014-2018: Indexed by Web of Science

Article excerpt

INTRODUCTION:

We know very well, the scientometric study is the most optimistic method for identifying the quality and productivity of a particular subject or the nature of the scientific output. In this paper deeply analyzed diabetes articles indexed by a Web of science (Clarivate Analysis) database during the year from 2014 to 2018, (Five Years) only. The key term "Diabetes" is used for data collection and also additionally used the key term "India" in the location tab. As a result of 8016 articles were published during the years. Each article has published in different periods and different authors.

OVERVIEW OF DIABETES: Globally and in India

Diabetes is the most common disease of in this world population; Generally, Diabetes disease caused by genetic, ethnic and socioeconomic factors. It's not a communicable disease; it is usually inherited from the hereditary. Diabetes that occurs when the pancreas is unable to secrete the insulin or when our body does not use it properly the secreted insulin. Insulin is a hormone; it is secreted by the pancreas to help the separate the glucose from the food; the separated glucose helps to nourish our cells. When glucose production decreases, or it is not used properly, glucose levels increase in the blood, medically known as hyperglycemia. Due to the continuous increase of glucose level in blood, many parts of the body are at risk of disrupting.

As per the WHO (World Health Organisation) report, most of the developed countries are affected by this disease. According to the International Diabetes Federation analytical report, "Worldwide 425 million adults were living with diabetes; It is expected to rise to 628 million by 2045. 1 in 2 (212 million) people with diabetes were undiagnosed; this disease has killed 4 million people, More than 21 million live births (1 in 7 births) were affected by diabetes during pregnancy". Most of the Indian people suffered from this disease. India is second place after China in this survey. In this paper focused on Indian research productivity, So, let's look at the statistics of this disease in India. 1,14,394.8 thousand of adults living with diabetes in India, 9.7% of people are affected by this disease, 61,294 thousand of people living with diabetes but they are undiagnosed. The expenditure per person is 549.4 USD. As per 2017, IDF Atlas report 8,42,994 thousand people have died related to diabetes in India.

DATA COLLECTION AND METHODOLOGY

All the needed data for research downloaded from the Web of Science database. WOS (Clarivate Analysis) is the most reliable database because of accurate data, objective, and complete resource available. It's offered completely indexed and cited all references, and also we can find author affiliations. More than 20 thousand Journals cautiously and loyally elected for the maintaining standardization, 1.4 billion cited references available from the year of 1990. The WOS platform is interlinked with WOS core collection and various citation indexing system, such as patent, special subject, and research datasets, almost included 33,000 journals.

In this study, we are using Histcite software for analyzing data and identifying the quality of authors and articles. It is very helpful and familiar software worldwide for bibliometric and Scientometric analytical studies.

REVIEW OF LITERATURE

The last decades, so many scientometrics studies have been conducted on diabetes at various periods. Some of the research authors belong to the medical field, and others belong to library science professionals.

Aniko Somogyi and Andras Schubert analyzed, "Correlation between national bibliometric and health indicators given diabetes case." They have collected the data from PubMed database up to 2000. In this study revealing the growth rate of diabetes in the year wise and also analyzed the geographical wise distribution of diabetes-related publication. …
