The results of preliminary analysis show that the number of international publications in the agricultural biology sector in the 2000-2019 period * increased sharply from 78 publications in 2000 to 6,895 publications in 2019*. The habit of international publication has many changes in the recognition of sponsorship information. Before 2009, 84% of the publications did not state funding sources, but after 2010, this rate dropped to only 30%. International cooperation in research proves that in order to improve the quality of scientific research in Vietnam, it is necessary to have national cooperation. The research also shows that the great transformation in science and technology human resources (S&T), the participation of the National Foundation for Science and Technology Development in funding and supporting basic research activities has had many positive effects, not only does it increase the number of authors whose Vietnamese address plays a key role in international publications, but also increases the number of authors in a publication.
