In the Chemical Research Center of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, special scientometric indicators have been used for evaluating publication activity of research teams for about 30 years. Modified Garfield impact factors for journals as well as relative citedness of papers are applied as indicators because of differences among subfields in scientometric features of the publications assessed. Our experience has shown that the evaluation of real scientometric systems needs compromises among the parties interested and between the practical applicability and the theoretical requirements of scientometrics.
