Objective: A bibliometric analysis was performed to investigate trends in mouse embryonic fibroblast (MEF) cells as a topic and also to compare the contributions of countries, journals, authors, keywords and citations. The elaboration of a strategic plan for the development of scientific research in stem cells and especially MEF as a research topic was analyzed.

Methods: A bibliometric study was carried out on Web of Science (WOS) and Scopus databases comprising the period between 1991 and 2020. These papers were analyzed and evaluated in terms of all years, field parameters (authors, keywords, affiliations, funding agencies, authors’ nationalities, article type, networks, h-index of journals and authors) and citations.

Results: As a result of the conducted research, it was found that the WOS and Scopus had published 1,255 and 6,562 papers, respectively, on ‘Mouse Embryonic Fibroblast’ as topic and article title, abstract and keywords. The articles are analyzed by bibliometric techniques in this study.

Conclusion: On analysis of papers related to the main parameters of MEF, it has been ascertained that the MEF-related articles published in the journals within the scope of Science Citation Index (SCI)/Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-E) was quite high and is growing rapidly. The medical publication feature has been characterized by international visibility and extensive networking with many foreign research structures. The number of citations was increasing significantly. The publishing patterns were different depending on the area of interest. These data are useful in studying the dynamical nature of science and can help in planning newer studies for researchers.
