English abstract

In the present study, output and citation analysis of research activities in engineering in the world are mapped during 2002-2016.The study aims to promote the awareness of the global research output in engineering. With this aim, Scimago Journal & Country Rank data (Scopus® database of Elsevier) has been accessed for obtaining the required scholarly publication data. An attempt for evaluation on different qualitative and quantitative parameters like number of publications, citation analysis, research output, and h-index has been done. With these indicators in the research, analysis and assessment of total 7252275 publications from engineering field were done. The results show that out of the total research output, China stands first with 22.22% share of the research and is followed by United States (17.78%) and Japan (6.04%). Outstanding countries in engineering research have significant impact and 68.93% of the total global engineering research has been done in 10 leading countries. During the period of study, the research output of engineering has improved considerably with an average annual growth of 6.88%
