Abstract: The present study was designed to study the research output in
pathology journals from the United States (USA), Japan, Germany, the United
Kingdom (UK), France, and China between 2000 and 2009. Articles published in
67 pathology-related journals were retrieved from the PubMed database. US-
American publications, which rank first, accounted for 30.9% of the total
world's output and for 35.4% in the top 10% journals with impact factor (IF)
scores. Chinese publications accounted for 2.8% of a total of 67 journals, and
for 2.0% in the top 10% journals with IF scores.
Our analysis investigated the research output of these six countries and
revealed a positive trend in China for the period 2000-2009. Also, in contrast to
other top-ranking countries, our results imply that China's research in the field
of pathology falls behind that of the developed countries, and appropriate
steps should be taken to improve the role of pathologists in clinical activity and
to gear up for high-quality pathological studies. (c) 2010 Elsevier GmbH. All
