Abstract:
Publication productivity, as
measured by the number of papers, has been regarded as one of the main
indicators of reputation of countries and institutions. Nevertheless,
the relationship among research publications, economic growth and World
Wide Web in ASEAN countries is still unclear. The main intention of this
study was to identify publication productivity among ASEAN and the
world’s top ten countries in the last 16 years (1996-2011). This study
also aimed at finding the relationship among publication, gross domestic
product (GDP) and internet usage. Furthermore, the publication trend in
the 10 first Malaysian universities was evaluated for the same periods.
Scopus database was used to find the overall documents, overall
citations, citations per document and international collaboration from
1996 to 2011 for each country. The World Bank database (World Data Bank)
was used to collect the data for GDP and the number of internet users.
Moreover, to evaluate 10 top Malaysian universities, the number of
published articles, conferences, reviews, and letters for the same
periods was collected. The results of this study showed significant
differences among ASEAN and top 10 countries regarding publication
productivity. Moreover, a positive and significant relationship was
observed between indices, GDP and internet usage for these countries.
Surprisingly, international collaboration had a significant and negative
relationship with economic growth. Malaysia had fewer citations per
document (7.64) and international collaboration (36.9%) among ASEAN
countries. In conclusion, international collaboration between academic
institutes and researchers is influenced by economic growth and access
to internet in the countries. Furthermore, publication trends in ASEAN
countries are promising. However, policy makers and science managers
should try to find different ways to increase the quality of the
research publication and to raise citation per document.
