To present findings on academic leadership within the biomedical informatics community based upon the number of research articles produced by authors, institutions, and countries within five biomedical informatics journals.Methods
Five biomedical informatics journals were analyzed for the most producing author, institution, and country for two time periods: 1995–1999 and 2000–2004.Results
Results show that an overall trend exists whereby the academic leadership for author, institution, and country is the U.S. The results exist for both time periods of 1995–1999 and 2000–2004.Conclusions
Even though individual institutional and author rankings may have fluctuated within the two time periods (1995–1999 and 2000–2004), U.S. dominance at the institutional and author level remains significant within the five biomedical journals selected for this study.
