International Scientific Productivity of Selected Universities in the Philippines
AbstractThis paper presents a survey of the productivity, in terms of international scientific publications, of 465
PhDs in the science and engineering colleges of selected research universities in the Philippines. It covers
the period 1998-2002. Publication counts are based on research articles listed in the Science Citation
Index of the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI). Results indicate that the average productivity of the
faculty surveyed is less than one (1) international publication in five (5) years. Only one of the academic
units included in the survey was able to achieve the world-class benchmark for research excellence, which
is at least one international publication per faculty member per year.
