Original Article


The publication of research work on mango carried out world over during the period 1993–2016 is reviewed for the various publications retrieved through the Science Citation Index Expanded. A total of 2984 documents were found in the search, of which 2665 are research articles and they were characterized for publication output and scientific descriptors. It was observed that there are 623 core journals involved in publication on mango research. 91.81% of the articles were published in English language and the journal Scientia Horticulturae was the most productive journal. India was the most productive country with 664 articles (24%) followed by Brazil. Among the institutions working on mango, the top three out of 10 were from India, Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bangalore, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi and Central Food Technology and Research Institute, Mysore. The words “Mangifera” “mango cultivar” and “Diptera” are the most figured key words in the title of the article and the major portion of the research was concerned with genetic diversity, genetic relatedness and quality aspects of the mango. This work would be useful to the researchers to know the trends in mango research.
