This paper has made an attempt to highlight the Neurology research in global level as per the scientific publications appeared in the Web of Science citation database during the period 2006-2015. It found a total of 23, 335 publications were published by the global researchers in the field of Neurology. The average number of publications published was 2333.5 and the highest numbers of publications (3357) were published in the year 2015. This paper tried to analyze the broad features of literature on global warming focusing on year wise growth of publications, most prolific authors, highly productive institutes, highly productive countries, language wise distributions of publications, high productive subject areas and most preferred journals for publications by scientists were also discussed.
