Introduction

Scientometrics is the study of measuring and analyzing science, technology and innovation. Major research issues embrace the dimension of impact, reference sets of articles to explore the impact of journals and institutes, considerate of scientific citations, mapping scientific fields and the formation of indicators for use in policy and organization contexts. In observe there is a important be related between scientometrics and other scientific fields such as bibliometrics, information science and science of science policy. Dengue diseases also known as break bone fever, is a mosquito-borne tropic a disease cause y the dengue virus.

Dengue diseases also known as break bone fever, is a mosquito-borne tropic a disease caused y the dengue virus. Symptoms consist of fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, and a quality skin rash that is similar to measles. In a small quantity of cases, the disease develops into the life-aggressive dengue hemorrhagic fever, resulting in bleeding, low levels of blood platelets and blood plasma leakage, or into dengue shock syndrome, where stress occurs. Treatment of acute dengue is compassionate using either oral or intravenous rehydration for mild or moderate disease, and intravenous fluids and blood transfusion for extra severe cases. The number of cases of dengue fever has increased dramatically since the 1960s, with between 50 and 528 million people infected yearly. Early descriptions of the circumstance date from 1779, and its viral cause and transmission were understood by the early 20th century. Dengue has become a global problem since the Second World War and is endemic in more than 110 countries. Apart from eliminating the mosquitoes, work is ongoing on a vaccine, as well as medication targeted directly at the virus.

Signs and symptoms

Typically, people contaminated with dengue virus are an indicative (80%) or only have mild symptoms such as an unsophisticated fever. Therefore, travelers frequent from widespread areas are improbable to have dengue if fever or other symptoms start more than 14 days after arriving home. Children repeatedly experience symptoms related to those of the common cold and gastroenteritis (sickness and diarrhea) and have a greater risk of severe complications, though initial symptoms are generally unconcerned but contain high fever.

Review of Literature

Hang Wen and Yi Huang (2012) carried out a investigate on oxidative stress publications published among 1991 and 2010 in journals of all the focus categories of the Science citation index. Publication trends were analyzed by the retrieved consequences in periodical type and language, individuality of articles outputs, country, focus categories and journals, and the incidence of title-words and keywords used. Over the years, there was a significant growth in article outputs, with more countries participating and collaborating. The seven major industrialized countries (G7) published the majority of the world articles while the USA contributed about one-third of the total. Chinese and Indian outputs grew much faster than those of other countries in the past five years. Oxidative stress research in food and ecological associated fields increasingly became the conventional of the research. An analysis of the title-words, author keywords and keywords plus showed that antioxidants in human or rat cells were the hot topic in the field. In addition, "reaction oxygen species", "apoptosis", and "nitric-oxide" were major topics of oxidative stress research recently.

Gupta, R., & Tiwari, R. (2014) conducted a study based on quantitatively evaluate Indian dengue research output during the 10 years from 2003 to 2012, using Scopus international multidisciplinary database. The study focused on global publication output, share, rank, and citation impact of top 15 most productive nations, India's publications output, growth, global publication share and research impact, international collaborative papers share in national output and the share of major international collaborative partner countries in total India's international collaborative papers, contribution of various sub-fields and distribution by population age groups, productivity and citation impact of its leading Indian institutions and authors and Indian contribution in most productive journals. Among the top 15 most productive countries, India holds second position in dengue fever research output, with global publication share of 10.22% during 2003-12. The average citation per paper scored by India was 3.27, the least among the top 15 most productive countries during 2003-12. India's share of international collaborative papers was 10.55% during 2003-12, which increased from 9.12% during 2003-07 to 11.13% during 2008-12. Present India's research efforts in dengue research are low in view of the 50,222 cases of dengue in 2012 alone. The country needs to increase its research output and also increase its research impact substantially particularly through enhanced national and international collaboration, besides evolving a national policy for identification, monitoring and control of dengue cases and also evolving a research strategy with sufficient funding commitment to solve this growing national problem.

Sa'ed, H. Z. (2016) the focused emergence the of the dengue is a significant emerging and reemerging infection worldwide as a quickly growing and extensive public health problem, with diffusion occurring in more than 128 countries in Asia, Americas, southeast Africa, western Pacific, and eastern Mediterranean regions. The consistent search advance based on the exploit of the keyword "dengue" in the title, abstract and keyword field was used to get examine output related to dengue at a global level. All data related to dengue were collected from the past to December 31, 2015.A total of 19,581 dengue-related documents identified in the Scopus database. The leading countries in dengue research were the USA (4,709; 24.05 %), India (1,942; 9.92 %), Brazil (1,530; 7.81 %), Thailand (1,260; 6.43 %), the UK (1,129; 5.77 %), and France (1,087; 5.55 %). Only 226 (1.16 % of the overall global research effort in the dengue field) articles were published in the Arab region. The total number of citations for all publications was 352,710, with an average of 18.0 citations per publication. Furthermore, the h-index for all extracted data related to dengue research...
