The data indicates an exponential growth in publications output during the study period. The most productive authors, organisations, most influential journals and most functional sub-field in the area of dengue research have been evaluated. Activity index for world is more than 100 in most years, whereas lots of variation is observed in the activity index for India. Quality/Impact analysis of Indian dengue research gave the first rank to Chaturvedi UC as author, FEMS Immunology and Medical Microbiology as most preferred journal and King Georg Medical College, Lucknow as the best organisation and Microbiology as most favoured sub-discipline in dengue research.
