2015 № 7 Evaluation of contributions of specific areas of clinical medicine to Russian integral publication flow, indexed in Web of Science and Scopus
The deadline for evaluating achievements by Order № 599 of the Russian President dated 7 May 2012, in accordance to which the share of Russian researcher’s publications among all publications of international scientific journals, indexed in the Web of Science data base, should reach 2,44% by 2015, is fast approaching. The article evaluates the contribution of specific areas of clinical medicine to integral publication flow in Russia, indexed in Web of Science in the period between 2011 to 2015. It is demonstrated that despite the efforts of the professional medical community directed on increasing the publication activity in international segment, the share of Russian publications remain at a low level. The issue of reflecting research findings in international journals is particularly critical for Russian surgeons, dentists, orthopaedists and otolaryngologists.
