SOLIS, Fernando; SENA, Emilce; CALDERON, Nelly  and  DUARTE-MASSI, Sergio. The paraguayan scientific productivity (2005 - 2015) in the web of science and google scholar. Rev. Int. Investig. Cienc. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.14, n.2, pp.109-118. ISSN 2226-4000.

This work aims to compare the scientific production of Paraguayan researchers who are categorized by the National Incentive Program for Paraguayan Researchers (PRONII) over the period of 2011 to 2014. The study period covered a production of 10 years (2005 to 2015). Data obtained were analyzed by Google Scholar and the Web of Science (WoS). On the basis of the analysis significant differences are observed between the production declared by the resumes of Paraguayan researchers and the results provided by Google Scholar and the Web of Science. That is, a low level index creation of Paraguayan Journals and a low international visibility of Paraguayan scientific production in journals considered as having a central or high impact.
