In this paper the research trends in condensed matter physics are investigated based on bibliometric analysis of journal articles collected from the Web of Science (WoS) database for the selected 37 main journals. The analyses are performed from the journal articles published between 1996 and 2005 on the aspects of megatrend, country, research institute, research level and global collaboration network. The research result covers the qualitative analysis based on impact factor and citation as well as the basic quantitative analysis. The result of this study was provided to the policy makers as a complementary material of guidelines for science and technology.
