KRAUSKOPF, ERWIN. Plant Science research productivity in Chile during the past 20 years. Biol. Res. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.2, pp.137-141. ISSN 0716-9760.

The purpose of this study was to carry out a bibliometric analysis of the articles published in Chile during 1987-2006 that were categorized into the Plant Science discipline by ISI. The data was extracted from the Web of Science datábase, obtaining a total of 911 articles for analysis. Almost half of the articles were the outcome of an international collaboration, the United States being the country with more collaborative links with Chile within this discipline. A list was made with the 10 most-cited articles and 10 most frequently used journals. The analysis showed that almost 50% of the articles were concentrated in 10 different journals. The number of articles produced each year revealed a steady growth in scientific production since 1987. This is probably related to the progressive interaction between industry and public-research institutions.

Keywords : bibliometric; plant science; productivity; epistemometric.
