Treatment of highly polluted pharmaceutical effluents is a major challenge all over the world for technical and economic considerations. In this study, scientometric study is performed on the application of various methods for the treatment of pharmaceutical effluents to explore further developments. In this regard, a total of 1964 documents were retrieved from the Web of Science (WoS) database using a set of relevant keywords to cover all published documents. The extracted documents were subjected to scientometric study including the contributed authors, publications, citations received, contributing countries and institutions as well as the subject categories. From the data retrieved, the status of scientific knowledge on the subject history and current trends were identified and scientific gaps were critically discussed. Publications in this area started to appear since the sixties and were considerably promoted around the beginning of 2000s. Scientific publications of years 1960-2018 followed sigmoidal trend. It was found that leading countries are China and the United States in terms of scientific output on treatment technologies for pharmaceutical effluents. Among the active journals published, "Water Research" has received the most citations. A detailed discussion on the science and developments in this field is provided including the potential applications of scientometry.

In the current global situation, the release of large amounts of potential effluents into the environment is considered as one of the most important and challenging issues. Innovations in the treatment methods to deal with this problem are among the research priorities within the scientific communities. Even though innumerable methods including physicochemical and biological have been used, yet no proper sustainability of the methods have been introduced. Membrane bioreactors (MBRs) have gained world-wide attention in recent years, but still there is no report in the literature to map the global research on this subject. The present manuscript describes a scientometric study on the global trend on the application of MBRs during the period 1991-2018 by employing variables such as: (1) distribution of documents over the adopted duration, (2) type of documents in this area, (3) rate of contribution among the different countries, (4) rate of cooperation among the authors, (5) frequency of the keywords co-occurring, (6) cited authors, (7) cited journals, (8) the frequency of categories appeared and (9) the cited documents. A total of 2452 bibliographic records from the Web of Science database were retrieved and analysed to generate results, thereby to create geospatial maps for a better understanding. The findings reveal an increase in the number of papers published in the world, especially China and USA being the top. The existing studies in MBRs research focus mainly on subject categories of the performance and fouling as the main criteria of the sustainable application of MBRs. This study therefore, provides an extensive understanding about the trends and research patterns of MBRs efforts worldwide.
