MORAGA C, Javier  and  METODOLOGIA E INVESTIGACION EN CIRUGIA et al. Rate of publishing according to origin of the articles in Revista Chilena de Cirugia: Assessment of the period 2007-2012. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2014, vol.66, n.6, pp.562-567. ISSN 0718-4026.

Background: One of the variables analyzed in bibliometric studies is the origin of the publications, making it possible to quantify the impact of different universities, medical centers and Regions in the number of publications of a particular journal. The aim of this study is to determine the rate of publication of the "Revista Chilena de Cirugía" (RCC) in the period 2007-2012 and its relationship to origin (Regions and Chapters of the Society of Surgeons of Chile) and university affiliation (UA). Material and Methods: Bibliometric study. All the RCC numbers between 2007 and 2012 were analyzed. The articles were categorized according to year of publication, article type, country Region that originated the article and UA expressed in every article. We determined the percentage of UA in each Region, we calculated the rate of publication, the overall publication average and the average annual rate (AAR). Results: In the study period 687 articles were published, with an average of 114.5 and 19.1 articles per volume and number respectively; of these, 602 met the selection criteria. 60.6%; 8.6% and 5% were generated in Regions Metropolitana, Araucanía and Biobío respectively. The 75.4% of the papers presented UA. The AAR was 1.1 ± 0.7 publications/year x 10 members, being higher for Chapters IX and IV Regions with 2.3±1,0 and 1.7 ± 0.5 publications/year x 10 members respectively. Conclusion: Most of the articles are generated in Metropolitana Region. A noticeable percentage of publications show no UA. Most AAR has been verified in regions.
