Educational growth is a fundamental infrastructure factor
required to achieve sustainable development. Therefore, evaluation and
measurement of educational growth is essential for establishing a
development road map. Because of this, there are many organizations and
databases that work to capture academic trends and provide the general
view of institute achievements. Web of Science and Scopus are the two
most popular and scientific. In this paper, we define the important
effective factors in educational growth and discuss them; we then
compare these defined factors across four different developing
countries: Brazil, Iran, Malaysia, and Turkey. As well as the
comparisons, this paper uses the Pearson product moment correlation
coefficient method to analyze the factors and the strong or weak
relationship between the factors are discussed.
