Abstract

This study proposes the global bibliometric overview of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) research in Scopus database in 1985 – 2015. This study detects key countries in this field of research as well as the major centers of excellence (organisations) in UAV research. We analyse publication activity of leading countries and organisations as well as the level of citation of their UAV publications. Special section is devoted to the analysis of cross-country collaboration links. For plotting the map of international collaboration in UAV research, VOSviewer software was used.

Keywords: Unmanned aerial vehicles, UAV, aviation, publication activity, Scopus, VOSviewer, bibliometric analysis, international collaboration, citation analysis, scientometrics
