Publication Research Trends On ‘Progress In Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy’: A Scientometric Study

Johnson I and Padma P


This study investigated the 383 documents published in the journal ‘Progress in NMR Spectroscopy’ to evaluate its publication trends of 20 years period from 2001 to 2020 in the field of NMR Spectroscopy. The scientometric analysis highlighted that a total number of 870 authors contributed these documents and most of the documents were reviews (370; 96.6%). The journal has published an average of 19.15 documents per year and the year 2009 has been registered as the highest publication year with 30 documents (7.83%) and the 2006-2010 quarter has been recorded with the highest number of publications (113). The journal has published 102 (26.63%) single-authored documents and the rest of them were multi-authored documents with a collaboration index of 2.77. Luchinat C was the most productive author; University of Florence of Italy contributed the highest number of affiliation; the ‘nuclear magnetic resonance’ was the most relevant keyword. The year 2003 has witnessed the highest mean TC per article (121.375) even though the same year has been recorded as the lowest publication year. Though the USA was the most productive country with 175 contributions, the European countries combined together have predominantly contributed 438 papers as well as scored high average article citations.
