English abstract

The aim of
this study is to examine the effect of Information and Communication
Technology (ICT) development on country’s scientific ranking as measured
by H-index. Moreover, this study applies ICT development sub-indices
including ICT Use, ICT Access and ICT skill to find the distinct effect
of these sub-indices on country’s H-index. To this purpose, required
data for the panel of 14 Middle East countries over the period 1995 to
2009 is collected. Findings of the current study show that ICT
development increases the H-index of the sample countries. The results
also indicate that ICT Use and ICT Skill sub-indices positively
contribute to higher H-index but the effect of ICT access on country’s
H-index is not clear.
