TORALES CABANAS, M; LEGUIZAMON, MA  e  SAMUDIO, M. Bibliometric study of the scientific output of the researchers of the Instituto de Investigaciones en Ciencias de la Salud : Period 1997-2011. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.1, pp.67-75. ISSN 1812-9528.

Bibliometrics refers to the quantification and evaluation of the scientific production of a country, an institution or an author. There are few bibliometric studies about Paraguayan researchers. The objective of this work was to study the scientific production of the researchers of the Instituto de Investigaciones en Ciencias de la Salud from 1997 to 2011. This was a cross-sectional descriptive observational retrospective study. An exhaustive search of the publications of IICS’ researchers was performed starting in an article published in the journal “Memorias del IICS” in 2011 that list those researchers. This was verified and extended in the database of SciELO Paraguay, Pub Med, Lilacs and the Health Virtual Library (BIREME). In the studied period, 276 scientific articles published by IICS’ researchers with a median of 5 and 8 authors in national and international journals respectively. The most productive year was 2009 with 30 (10,87%) publications, and the lowest was 2000 (n=4). Concerning articles types, 225 were original articles and 180 were published in Spanish. Among journals, “Memorias del IICS” was the most frequent at national level while PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases was among international ones with a high impact factor. The indicators showed that the production of the IICS has followed a growing trend in the last years.
