A bibliometric analysis of publications of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. Malaysian Journal of Fundamental and Applied Sciences, 18 (1). pp. 1-18. ISSN 2289-599X (2022)


This study analyses the scholarly publications of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in conjunction with 50 years of UTM establishment. A bibliometric analysis is performed to analyse the UTM’s publication and research trends over the 50 years, especially during the post-research University (RU) period, publications impacts, subject area expertise and publications performance in comparison to other RU. Based on the analysis, engineering and computer science are the most prominent fields among the research fields in UTM in terms of a number of publications and citations thus far. Among the top 10 fields in UTM, materials science, chemical engineering, energy and chemistry areas are seen to have a high potential to further excel in citation provided that the publication numbers of these fields are further increased. The publications output for some UTM fields can still be considered low despite having a reasonable number of authors and talents. UTM is the top university in the number of publications from 2015 till 2020 in four fields, namely engineering, computer science, materials science, and chemical engineering, compared to other RU.
