English abstract

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.
