The study analyses the research publications of forensic medicine growth that between 11 (0.26%) in 1989 and 447 (10.76%) in 2013. The largest output was found in 447 publications in 2013, followed by 420 (10.38%) in 2015. Value n in the field of forensic medicine is being analysed. It has a calculated exponential growth of n= 4.4320914; author data is presented in the analysis. The whole values of A for Indian output were measured 0.84. It is analysed that the world output in forensic medicine, the value of B, are also found to be increasing and decreasing trend during the study period.

Review Of Literature

The research was intended to analyse the special characteristics and structure of social networks among Korean medical schools for the purpose of providing knowledge regarding medical field structure, dynamics, and potential paradigm development (Kang & Park, 2010). The growth of malaria research at Global Level and the distribution of articles in various journals for the period 1955–2005 (Ravichandra Rao & Divya Srivastavab, 2010). The data have been extracted from a database, which has been developed in-house from MEDLINE, SCI, TDB, Ovid Heath Information and Indian Science Abstracts. Study indicates that the exponential model fits the data on journals, articles and authors. Tehran University of Medical Sciences as the top medical university of Iran was compared with some of top medical universities around the world (Abolghassemi Fakhree & Jouyban, 2011). The qualitative stands up to independent rather than comparative scrutiny. The results shows that of the 240 papers analysed, 27 used ad hoc or no references to qualitative; methodological terms such as thematic analysis or constant comparative methods were used inconsistently; qualitative was a catch-all panacea rather than a methodology with well-argued terms or contextual definition (Ball. E Mc Loughlin & Darvill, 2011). The quantity and citation impact of scientific papers in the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). The data are collected from 19 CAM journals in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-E) database during 1980–2009, and 17,002 papers are identified for analysis (Fu. J.Y, et al., 2011).
