“Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever” is the topic selected for the Scientometric study to assess the responsibilities of the global scientists through the measurement of the impact of their research publications. “Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever” affects the health of the society and particularly the young generation are suffering a lot and many of them destined to “Early Death”. The Scientometric study in this research reveals that only 646 publications were published from 2009 to 2018, which means the research contribution on “Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever” is very low. The country wise publications show that “India” leads the table with more number of publications than the other global countries. The language wise publications show that “English” language plays a dominant role over the global languages. The degree of collaboration is very high towards publishing research papers on “Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever”. The law conceived by Alfred Lotka for the author productivity does not fit for the research productivity taken for the Scientometric study. It is suggested the global research bodies and the ministry of global countries to encourage the scientists to do many more research work on “Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever” to enhance the health of the society.
