Review Of Literature

The relationship between research group size and scientific productivity within the highly cooperative research environment characteristic of contemporary biomedical science, an investigation of Norwegian Microbiology was undertaken (Seglen, & Aksnes, 2000)

The quality for bibliometric studies attempting to analyse the evolution of biotechnology research, to map leading organizations, and to study the interaction between science and technology (Dalpe, 2002). The study attempts to analyze quantitatively the growth and development of information literacy research in global in terms of publication output as reflected in web of science database (SCI) for the period of 2015 to 2019. The researcher has published a total of 4388 papers on information literacy during this period. The study reveals that information literacy research in global is still in its infancy (Shamili & Mohammed Ismail, 2015).

Oral cancer is any malignant neoplasm which is found on the lip, floor of the mouth, cheek lining, gingiva, palate or in the tongue. Oral cancer is among the top three types of cancers in India. The incidence of oral cancer is highest in India, south and Southeast Asian countries. In India, 90 -95% of the oral cancers is squamous cell carcinoma. Based on oral cancer research data obtained from Web of Science database core collection, it is seen that with 2606 (6.92% global share) articles from India on oral cancer during 2010-2017, India ranks 4th in the world in terms of research paper output. About 75% of the Indian publications appeared during the period 2010-17(Sadik Batcha, 2018). Cancer research is growing rapidly as evidenced by the increasing research publication output. Bibliometric analysis helps in studying the various facets of publication productivity in different research areas (Moed, Burger, Frankfort & Raan, 1985 and Batcha SM., 2017).
