Publication activity is the most important criterion for the effectiveness of organizations, authors and scientific journals. Publication activity is the result of the research activity of an author or a team in the form of a scientific publication evaluated according to the following indicators:
- number of publications;
- "Citation Index" (citation for each publication);
- the impact factor of the journal where the work was published.
The publication activity and productivity of authors, organizations and journals are measured using scientometric indicators.
For analysis of the publication activity international and domestic bases (systems) of citation are used.
The most famous international citation databases are Scopus and Web of Science.
Scopus is the largest database of annotations and citation information for peer-reviewed scientific literature with built-in tracking, analysis and data visualization tools. The database indexes over 23,500 titles from 5,000 international publishers in the field of natural, social and human sciences, technology, medicine and art.
