A Bibliometric Analysis on "Fertility Rate" Research Trends


(show affiliations)

The systematic literature
search on the fertility rate was performed on articles from the Web of
Science compiled by the Institute of Scientific Information (ISI) to
provide major publication characteristics. All articles related to
Fertility from year 1980 to 2011 were analyzed with the bibliometric
approach using non-parametrics techniques. Total Citation, Citation per
year and Cited References were significantly different between the 80’s,
90’s and 2000’s, with more than a 100% increase in the number of
publication. The association between number of authors and citation per
year were significantly weak. Number of publication in a journal posed a
poor negative association with the citation per year. Similarity
between Authors Keyword and KeyWords Plus® do not promote the increase
in citation per year. The author’s affiliation and country of
publication would be an interesting exploration for future fertility
research. The bibiliometric analyses on Fertility is rather new and
vital, as the key finding will provide researchers guidance in the
literature search and future publication.
