Objectives: In this study it was aimed to make the bibliometric analysis of 19962007 and 2007 European publications related to infectious diseases and clinical microbiology areas.
Methods: Bibliomeric data related to 19962007 and 2007 were retrieved from SCImago journal and country rank web site (www.scimagojr.org). Data related to infectious diseases and clinical microbiology were accessed by using the infectious diseases subcategory and clinical microbiology subcategory of the database. Top 10 European countries according to total publication number was also detailed with data of citable publications (articles+reviews), total citations, citation per paper and H index.
Results: When evaluated according to total number of publications, United Kingdom, France and Germany are the top three countries in the infectious diseases area both in 19972007 and 2007 periods. In the medical microbiology area in 19972007 period top three countries are Spain, Germany and Italy whereas in 2007 top three are Spain, Germany and United Kingdom (See table). United Kingdom which is European number one in infectous diseases, is globally the second after United States in both 19972007 and 2007 periods. Spain which is the European number one in medical microbiology, is the third in 19972007 period (after United States and Japan) and the fifth in 2007 (after United States, China, Japan and Brazil) (data not shown).
Conclusion: Although at least some of the European countries are quite competitive both in infectious diseases and medical microbiology areas, further progress is needed.
