Abstract OBJECTIVE: This study analyzes the research output of India in asthma during the period from 1999 till 2008. It analyzes the growth, rank and global publications share, citation impact, share of international collaborative papers, contribution of major collaborative partner countries and contribution of various subject fields. It also analyzes the characteristics of most productive institutions, authors and high-cited papers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: SCOPUS database has been used to retrieve the data on publication output in asthma research. RESULTS: India ranks 15(th) position among the top 23 countries in asthma research, with its global publication share of 1.27\% (862 papers), registering an average citation per paper of 3.43 and achieved an h-index of 33 during 1999-2008. CONCLUSION: Indian research output on asthma is quite low in the global context as reflected from its publication output per thousand population (0.001) and its world publication share (1.27\%) during 1999-2008. Also, the impact and quality of Indian research is low compared to select developed and developing countries.
