Chemistry research in East Central Europe (1992-1997)

Facts and figures on publication output and citation impact for 13 countries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Analytical presentations on the publication productivity and impact of nations have attained remarkable interest during the last few years. This type of comparative international auditing has a long tradition within the scientific research enterprise stretching from the first timid trials by Alphonse de Candolle in the previous century, up to more streamlined approaches by Derek Price in the sixties, and Herbert Inhaber in the seventies. The usefulness of such publications has been fully certified in the field of national and international science policy studies. The initiative at the ISSRU for making the abovementioned line of inquiry one of its main research areas was adopted in the early 80's and continued ever since. The building of new types of scientometric indicators and the adoption of multidimensional approaches to these has been accompanying such studies. The profound political and economical changes which have taken place in the East Central part of Europe (ECE) in 1989 have had also a very important influence on the scientific research system of the countries involved. A first attempt to examine the changes in the research output and performance of these countries has been done in 1996. The present paper is a follow-up of that study and deals this time with facts and figures on the scientific performance of Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. For comparison, the data for Finland and the Baltic Countries have been added.
