It is to bring to your kind notice that we are submitting a manuscript for publication in the ‘Journal of Informetrics’ entitled “Inclinations of Global Research on Saffron as represented by Science Citation Index-Expanded”. It has neither been published nor has been submitted for publication elsewhere.

The manuscript is based on the number of publications on saffron and the analysis is based on the data of these articles available through Science Citation Index-Expanded. The inferences are widely helpful for the research implications and the quality measurements of the new researches. The manuscript is relevant for the journal and its scope and we hope its publication can help your readers largely in this scientific area.

Abstract

Using the Science Citation Index-Expanded of the Web of Science Core Collection, we analyzed global saffron research literature published between 1991 and 2017. The variables examined were research performance of nations, institutions, and authors. The study noted that the distribution of author keywords, citations, and publication patterns of saffron related articles to ascertain the research inclinations. The highly cited articles and author keyword analysis showed that the chemical and biochemical qualities of saffron were of key interest for the researchers.
