ABSTRACT

Introduction:: Heart disease or cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a kind of illness that involve heartand/or blood vessels of people throughout the world. The major aim of current study was to showthe trend of global scientific activities in the field of CVD during a period of 10 years through2001-2010.

Methods: A scientometrics analysis was carried out to show the world wide activities towardsscientific production in the field of CVD during a period of 10 years. Science Citation Index-Expanded (SCI-E) was used to extract all documents indexed as a topic of CVD throughout 2001-2010.

Results: Analysis of data showed that the number of publications in the field of cardiovascular hasincreased steadily. The number of publication indexed in SCI-E in 2010 was three times greaterthan in 2001. It reached from 5080 documents in 2001 into 15,584 documents in 2010. Englishconsisting 95% of total publication was the most dominant language of publications. Based onBradford scatterings law the journal of Circulation was the most prolific journal among corejournals. The USA sharing 29.5% of world’s profiles in the field was the most productive countryHarvard University was the most productive Institution followed by Brigham Women’s Hospital.

Conclusion:: The vast majority of scientific publication in the field of CVD was produced byauthors from North America and Western Europe. The results of study concluded that researchactivities in the field of CVD have become an interesting subject area of scientists during years2001-2010.

Mentions: Based on the data of Figure 3 Harvard University contributing of 3.3% of total production in the field is the most productive institution. The followings are Brigham Womens Hospital (1.5%), University of Washington (1.4%), University of Pittsburgh (1.3%), University of Minnesota (1.2%), Johns Hopkins University (1.1%), University of Calif San Francisco (1.1%), Boston University (1.1%), University of Calif Los Angeles (1.1%) and University of Toronto (1.0%). The figure is restricted to the countries that published greater than 1000 papers in the field.
