Thomson Reuters Web of Science(R) Provides Insights Into More than a Century of Influenza Research for Today's Health Professionals
Date:4/30/2009

e the virulence of the 1918 influenza epidemic, the 2009 outbreak of Swine Influenza is also the A/H1N1(2) strain, unlike the 1957 Asian Flu (A/H2N2 strain) or the 1968 Hong Kong flu (A/H3N3 strain)(3). Both the Asian and Hong Kong Flu epidemics have also been succeeded by an increase in the number of scholarly articles published.

The more recent high activity in research may be related to the repeated outbreaks of the H5N1 strain of influenza, often known as bird or avian influenza, particularly during 2003 and 2005.

It is worth noting that in general terms, the overall volumes of scholarly articles published in all fields of research have been increasing year on year. Therefore the size of the peak in the period of 1918-1924 is actually far higher when considered as a proportion of the overall body of scholarly research published in the same period. Figure #2 shows the publishing trend normalized to 2008 levels of publishing volumes.

Normalized to represent the number of articles that would have been published if the global research output at that period of time were consistent with 2008 levels
