English abstract

Contributions of the Balkan countries to the world of science are limited. Based on the total number of publications listed in citation indexes, Turkey and Greece, each with more than 100,000 publications to their credit, ranks 21st and 22nd, respectively, in the world. Other Balkan countries have fewer publications (Bulgaria: 53,795 publications; Romania: 53,269; and “Yugoslavia”: 49,018).3 The newly established states (after Yugoslavia’s split) published even fewer papers (Slovenia: 25,033; Croatia: 24,116; Serbia: 9,910; Macedonia: 2,272; and Bosnia & Herzegovina: 1,124). Albania, Montenegro and Kosovo follow these countries with 780, 317 and 51 papers, respectively.
