This study depicts ihe management system of a research institute based on input-output principles. The elements of the system are the scientific departments. The main categories of the controlling system arc the planning and supervision or research activities, evaluation of scientific and economic results and rewarding of researchers. The evaluation of scientific results focuses on the analysis of publications. The quality of scientific papers is characterized by a scoring system based on impact factors of periodicals and by citations received. Possible reasons for the lack of citations are discussed. The results of mission-oriented research (MOR) are evaluated on the basis of revenues and earnings. The amount of bonus given to researchers is based on a scoring system taking publication and MOR activity into account. A marked difference in the number of publications and citations among individual departments was observed.
