  1. TC total citations, C/A citation per article, h-index Hirsch index, USA United States of America, UK United Kingdom, SCP single country publications, MCP multiple country publications
  2. aWhen productivity of each country was calculated alone the total number exceeds the number of retrieved articles. However, when productivity of all countries was dealt with collectively, the total number will be lesser than that presented in the table. The collaboration between countries created some percentage of overlap and therefore certain number of similar countries were counted twice for collaborating countries
