dc.description.abstractThis paper presents the findings of a study on research productivity of the University of Zambia (UNZA) in the year 2018 using selected bibliometric indicators. Data was collected from Scopus, PubMed, Google scholar, UNZA Institutional Repository, UNZA Journals Online, and others. Five hundred and sixteen (516) publications were analysed using Microsoft Excel. VOSviewer was used to visualise research themes based on keywords. The study established that 366 academic staff participated in the total research output, giving a 39% participation rate. Results further revealed an overall staff-to-paper publication ratio of 0.6 and 0.8 degrees of collaboration among the researchers. The research output was characterised by journal articles (79.8%) as the most preferred medium of research dissemination while the majority (80%) of the publications were multiple-authored. The study recommends converting traditional journals into online open access journals to improve the impact of UNZA's research output while encouraging staff to engage in research. Keywords: Bibliometric analysis, Research Output, Research Productivity, Research Assessment, Research Evaluation, Citations, Research Collaboration, University of Zambia, Zambia, 2018.en
