Imane Rhassate, Naila Amrous, Samir Bennani


The main purpose of this research is to examine the state of scientific research in the field of Computer Science in Morocco during the last decade and compare the scientific production in this field among the 3 North African countries.

Based on a bibliometric study - carried out by searching the Scopus database with a combined search strategy based on the keywords listed - and on an analysis of the data collected, this study evaluated the number of publications, co-authorship and scientific collaboration networks locally in Morocco and regionally with Algeria and Tunisia.

There is a lack of communication and collaboration between universities in neighboring countries or sometimes between the universities of the same country.

Finally, for conclude, our study presents recommendations for improving the visibility and ranking of the Moroccan university and the Moroccan researcher within its global scientific community.
