Abstract

The main objective of the study is scientometric analysis of the trend of research collaboration patterns, the growth of international collaboration and the factors influencing the number of citations of CFTIs from 1991 to 2020. The 57 CFTIs, established before 2015 are considered for analysis. A total of 401171 publication records were extracted from the Scopus database and analysed using excel and scientometric techniques. The growth in the number of publications in 2020 was 17.88 times compared to 1991, and publications per institute increased by 9.40 times. Most of the publications (85.86%) were contributed by two, three, four and five authors. The trend of single-authored publications from 1991 to 2020 decreased from 10.19 % to 2.79%. The degree of collaboration is 0.96.The ratio of single authored vs multi-authored publications is 4.34:95.66. The internationally collaborated publications of CFTIs continuously increased from 11.49% in 1991 to 22.28% in 2020. The trend of average citations for publications with multiauthored papers is higher than for single-authored publications. A similar trend was found in the publications of collaborated internationally than non internationally collaborated; the difference in average citations is 10.96.
