Clarivate Studies Research Trends in the Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey

Clarivate unveiled the newest “Global Research Report” from the Institute of Scientific Information, which “explores the seismic shift of the research landscape in 19 countries across the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT) region over recent decades. It presents an international success story, with the region’s global share of research output quadrupling from 2% to 8% over the last 40 years, and papers from 22 million individual researchers identified within the region between 2008 and 2017.”

In addition, “Iran has surpassed Israel and Turkey to become the largest research producer among MENAT countries, increasing its world share of the Web of Science literature from 0.2% in 2000 to 2.3% in 2019.” In the MENAT region, public health and epidemiology are the most popular topics for publication overall; in Turkey, the most popular topics are sustainable economic growth and biogas, and in Iran, the topic of soil erosion is “especially strong.”

“The data indicate that MENAT research shows high levels of global collaboration, resulting in diverse and high-quality output with rising impact,” says Martin Szomszor, director of the Institute for Scientific Information. “However, regional collaboration remains relatively low and fragmented and our analysis suggests that a collaborative regional network could improve competitiveness between the region and the rest of the world by focusing on shared needs and international priorities.”
