Aerospace science and technology is a major research area for nations because of its economic and strategic importance. Gangan Prathap analysed aerospace research in India using the Scopus database and the keywords AERO* and INDIA in the field of affiliation. While Scopus is an extensive database, it includes conference papers which are not considered archival. In the present analysis, we have used ISI Web of Science as the search database and only AERO* in the address field. The objective is to analyse international aerospace research. We have also limited the time interval to the period 2000–08 in order to bring out recent trends in research, and identify the emergence of new countries and institutions in aerospace research. The ISI Web of Science shows 52,555 publications under AERO* during this period in the last week of April 2008. The ‘Analyze’ tool in the Web of Science has been used to evaluate the nations and institutions.
