Objective: This study offers a systematic and comprehensive picture of the field, which researchers may
use to assess the characteristics of articles involving Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
— Materials and Methods: In the current bibliometric analysis study, the Web of Science (WoS; formerly
Web of Knowledge) database was used to accomplish the objective of the study. The keywords “Neisseria gonorrhoeae” “gonorrhoeae” or “N. gonorrhoeae” or “gonorrhea” were used in the search, using “title” as the search item. The article category was referred to as the document type in this study.
— Results: In the WOS database, 4,250 articles were retrieved for the entire study period. Most of the articles were published between the years 2010-2019 (27.506%). The articles were from 84 different study
areas. Most of them from Microbiology (n= 1829, 43.035%), Infectious Diseases (n=1664, 39.153%)
and Immunology (n=793, 18.659%) areas. The top-ranked country was the United State of America
(USA) (n=1931, 45.435%) in this field. Also, England, Canada, Sweeden, and Australia were the most
productive countries on this topic. Turkey ranked 46th. 4,250 articles were cited 106,469 times, H index
average per item was 117. The number of citations increased over the years.
— Conclusions: Our findings revealed that current research on the subject of gonorrhea has increased dramatically, as expected, and has covered a wide range of specialties. With a focus on the USA, American
and European institutions are by far the most influential regions of the globe in terms of study in this field.
