ARIAS CHAVEZ, Dennis et al. Bibliometric analysis of Peruvian scientific production on the training of health professionals. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2019, vol.17, n.3, pp.41-48. ISSN 1812-9528.

Research and scientific publication are important aspects of professional training in health, as they will allow efficient practice of evidence-based medicine. The objective was to describe through bibliometric indicators the scientific production related to the training of health professionals in Peru during the period 2014-2018 . Bibliometric study of the entire Peruvian scientific production that deals with the training of health professionals in the period 2014-2018, retrieved from the Google academic database. We calculated the scientometric indicators of 155 articles filtered by the Harzing's Publish or Perish v.6 software. The variables studied were: total number of articles, citations, average citations per year for articles, authors and authors per year, average articles per author, average number of authors per article, the h, g indexes contemporary h (hc), individual h (hI), standard hI, AWCR, AW, AWCRpA, e, hm, annual hI, amplitude H, amplitude, number of authors, index of collaboration, most-cited articles and annual distribution of articles, as well as their publishers. A total of 905 citations were obtained with an average of 181.00; 5.84 and 457.37 citations per year, articles and authors respectively. The publications have an H-index of 16 and a G-index of 19. The annual production of 2015, with 41 publications, stood out, the largest number of authors work in pairs (48 articles). A total of 458 authors were published in the 155 articles, generating a 2.95 collaboration rate. Scientific production related to the training of health professionals in Peru was scarce in the last 5 years. Scientometric indicators show a decreasing trend.
