AbstractBackground: A tremendously increasing figure of articles and studies in the recent years has advocated the significance of diabetes mellitus as one of the commonly identified non-infectious diseases and holds the first position of the chances of developing complications in non-infectious chronic disorders. Most amazingly, incidence of diabetes has pointedly improved in elderly, particularly type 2 diabetes mellitus. Additionally, there exists a large amount of published literatures signifying that diabetes mellitus is a disease of public health concern and is a major burden on community health services and socio-economic status either in developing or developed countries. To evaluate and assess the research output, a bibliometric analysis of the researches on diabetes mellitus has been done from the year 2017-2020. Methods: A wide spectrum of relevant scientific publications were retrieved from the databases like Scopus and Web of Science using the specific search queries. The scientific literatures which were accessed were then imported as BibText and RIS files. There were also checked for presence of any duplications in both the databases. The duplicates if found were removed and subsequently the final list of publications was prepared. Data related to finalised publications was imported to R- Studio application for producing the graphs and plots related to the number of scientific productions. Results: The search generated a data of a total of 784 documents from 438 Sources (Journals, Books, etc.) for the period from 2017 – 2020. The number of authors included a list of 4782 authors. Authors of single-authored documents were 22; whereas, authors of multi-authored documents were 4760. Thus, there were 6.1 authors per document, 8.46 co-authors per document. The Collaboration Index was 6.3. Conclusion: Our comprehensive and systematic analysis of published literatures on Diabetes mellitus by the researchers highlighted the importance of the funding for diabetes research.
