Title : Scientometric Nuclear Research: A Global Perspective
Country : India
Authors : Dr.K.Vinitha || Mr.V.Srinivasan

Abstract: Since Vassily V. Nalimov coined the term 'scientometrics' in the 1960s, this term has grown in popularity and is used to describe the study of science: growth, structure, interrelationships and productivity. Scientometrics is related to and has overlapping interests with bibliometrics and informetrics. The terms bibliometrics, scientometrics, and informetrics refer to component fields related to the study of the dynamics of disciplines as reflected in the production of their literature. Areas of study range from charting changes in the output of a scholarly field through time and across countries, to the library collection problem of maintaining control of the output, and to the low publication productivity of most researchers. This article narrates the nuclear research at global level.

Title : The Impact of User Fees on Health Services in Yemen
Country : China
Authors : Abdulrakeeb abdusaeed al-hakimy || Abdulsalam M.A.Naseer || Feng zhanchun

Abstract: The issue towards achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals re-invigorated concerns around sustainable health care financing and the adequacy of the financing arrangements in many low-resource settings (developing countries). This necessitated the institution of user-fees as part of health financing reform in many countries in Yemen. These fees are charges levied at the point of service with the intention of reducing 'frivolous' consumption of health services, increasing the quality of services available and also increasing coverage and utilization of services. Likewise, as a 'decisive' policy to cushion the existing challenges facing health care financing in the region, a critical assessment of the assertions of proponents of user fees who use the principle of cost recovery and revenue mobilization to drive the concept of rational utilization, efficiency and equitable distribution of health care services is often exaggerated.

Title : Health policy course in Europe
Country : China
Authors : Abdulrakeeb abdusaeed al-hakimy || Abdulsalm.M.A.Naseer || Feng zhanchun

Abstract: During the past decades, many governments have introduced patient cost-sharing in their public health-care system. This trend towards more cost-sharing by patients has affected the European Union (EU) member states as well the objective of patient cost-sharing is to increase the efficiency of health-care utilization by making consumers more cost-conscious. The introduction of patient cost-sharing is also a method to generate additional health-care revenues and/or to shift health-care costs to consumers while trying to contain the overall public expenditures on health. Although the achievement of these objectives is disputed, the current context of increased fiscal pressure and sustainability problems within the European public health-care systems brings patient cost-sharing on the policy agenda.

Title : Youth Empowerment: A Panacea To Sustainable Democracy In Nigeria
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Babalola,Olatomide.E || FasikuAdesola M

Abstract: Democratic governance in any country of the world is always accomplished with some values of freedom such as freedom of choosing who will govern the country, religion or freedom of worship, ownership of property and education of children, freedom of speech and freedom to enjoy the benefits of their labour. All these values of freedom are right and privileges that are true for every citizen in the society. When citizens experience these values of freedom, it will in turn sustain democratic governance.
