Top 14 collaborative countries 


The data shows that Bangladeshi researchers are either working  in or in collaboration with 128 countries including Israeli researchers with whom we have 1 documents published in medical sciences.  However, top ten countries are wide scattered from North American countries to Europe to Eastern Japan to South eastern Malaysia to our neighbour India.




Top 10 Research Institutes


Bangladeshi researchers doing research in over 150 universities/ institutes throughout the world published those articles.  

  • University of Dhaka has published highest 341 and Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) has published 330 documents. 
  • Among top 10 institutes, only ICDDR, B is the only non-university research institutes which have published 213 documents.
  • University Putra Malaysia has captured 8th position with 110 documents which means that a large number of Bangladeshi researchers are doing research having relation with this university in one or other forms, either working there or in collaboration with this university.
  • Shahjalal University of Science and Technology is in the 10th position with 99 articles. 

From the number  of publications, it may seem University of Dhaka  is the top publisher.   But  with over thousand  full time faculty, then there is one(1) publication  against at least three teachers. On the other hand, against 500 teachers, BUET has published 230 documents. That is, there is more than  1 publications against two teachers.  So  instead of total number, we should find out density of publications against faculties in different institutes. 

Top Private Universites 

 Among the private  universites

  • North south university is  the  top publisher  (11th position)  with 79 articles
  • Brac University is in the  second top (14th position),
  • American International University-Bangladesh is in the third position(20th)  with   with 62 articles and
  • Stampford  University Bangladesh in fourth position(24th) with 34 aritcles. 




Engineering and Technology  Universities 

Agriculture and Veterinary  Research 

Science and Technology Universities 

Medical College and  Public Health Research institutes 



Subject Area of Publication


The top area in which highest number of documents has been published is  Engineering. Then in medicine and third top area is computer sciences.  

  • Do this figure  reflect our national priority?
  • What is or should be the national priority research area of Bangladesh, Agriculture, Energy or Health/Medicine?
  • Does Bangladesh have any priority area of research in her science policy?
  • Does this statistics reflect our priority?  These questions should be widely and deeply discussed as we have huge population but limited ability to invest in research.




This is not the complete picture of scientific  publications by Bangladeshi researchers  from home and abroad as there are lot many publications in local journals which are not indexed  with scopus. However, from this analysis we can get a  significant  view of our research performance of Bangladeshi researcher  affilitated with Bangladesh, working at home or in Abroad. 


Comparative data from SAARC countries  has  interesting point of research
