Abstract:The aim of this study is to analyze international collaboration and growth of literature at the macro level using the two new indices, Relative International Collaboration Rate (RICR) and Relative Growth Index (RGI). To illustrate these indices, literature on the field of tribology covered in SCOPUS during 1998 2012 is used. As tribology is highly interdisciplinary in nature, which can be demonstrated by the indices, both indices can be used for other subject disciplines.
