Abstract: Bibliometrics, citation analysis, journal impact fact or and Hirsch’s index are techniques and metrics used to study communication pattern and evaluate research performance of researchers in the academic world. This study uses those techniques and metrics, together with the aid of Journal Citation Reports (JCR) 2006 and Scopus 2006 citation database, on 2963 researchers from business, computer science and electrical engineering disciplines from 2 local universities in Singapore and 8 Ivy League universities in the United States. We have also expanded this study to cover additional 274 researchers from computer science discipline from 3 leading Asian universities in Hong Kong and Japan and 3 leading Commonwealth universities in Australia and the United Kingdom. This study establishes the 2 facts that computer science researchers communicate more using journal papers, rat her than the conference papers, and that local universities in Singapore are lagging behind Ivy League universities in term of research performance. The expanded study establishes 2 additional facts that local universities in Singapore are comparable to Asian universities in term of research performance in computer science discipline, and that local universities in Singapore are ahead of Commonwealth universities in tern of research performance in computer science discipline. The expanded study also reaffirms the fact that computer science researchers communicate more using journal papers, rather than conference papers.
