Abstract: Bibliometric methods were used to analyze publications from the Web of Science on Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) in the past 18 years. Results showed that although PPR is now a widespread and serious disease in many developing countries, the total number of articles on PPR is only 342. The research indicates that more basic studies should be done on the PPR and differentiating infected from vaccinated animals vaccines which would be important to prevent the disease. Moreover, collaborations among authors, institutions and countries as well as good financial support are the keys to control or even eradicate PPR.
