This article presents a bibliometric analysis of international scientific publications from the Philippines for the period 1998-2002. A total of 1,625 bibliometric entries were extracted from the Science Citation Index representing ISI abstracted research journal articles that have at least one author with a Philippines country affiliation. Bulk of the analysis used a subset of 879 articles where the lead authors are from the Philippines. Patterns of authorship, collaboration, productivity and quality of international scientific publications across disciplines, institutional categories, and specific institutions were also extracted. Findings were clustered around three general theme patterns: collaboration is the norm, publications came from a disproportionate few, and low publication productivity and quality. Implications and recommendations of the theme patterns were discussed
