Abstract

A literature search utilizing the Web of Science (Science Citation Index Expanded) was used to examine historic and recent publication quantity for scientific and engineering-related coal research. Searches on the term coal in the title of English-language journal articles were conducted for the time spans of 1970-2000 for historic data and 2000-2010 for recent activity. The number of journal articles was 25,368 for the years 1970-2010 and 8,860 (35 percent) articles for 2000-2010. The Analyze Results tool was used to identify the most active countries, institutions, and journals.
