 For better understanding the global trend in wastewater resource recovery and reflecting major nation’s scientific capability and influences on the world’s science community in the field, a bibliometric analysis was conducted using the literatures in the Science Citation Index (SCI) database during the period 1995–2014. Results indicate that: 1) among all articles included by the SCI, water recovery from wastewaters account for the largest percentage with 72.0% of all related research fields. 2) The mainly involved subject areas are Environmental Sciences, Engineering Environmental, Water Resources, Engineering Chemical, Biotechnology Applied Microbiology, and so on. The number of the Environmental Sciences articles has the largest annual growth. 3) The topranked countries of both the total number of articles and the average impact factor are USA, Spain, and India. However, China has the fastest growth rate of publishing articles only. 4) Three research institute including University of California System, India Institute of Technology, and Consejo Superior De Investigaciones Cientificas are the most abundant research institutes in this field. The Chinese Academy of Sciences and Tsinghua University were the two toppest institutions in China that have advance its international influence in recent years.
