English abstract

The contribution of Turkish researchers to positive sciences is increasing. Turkish scientists published more than 5.100 articles in 1998 in scientific journals indexed by the Institute for Scientific Information’s Science Citation Index, which elevated Turkey to the 25th place in the world rankings in terms of total contribution to science. In this paper, we report the preliminary findings of the bibliometric characteristics (authors and affiliations, medical journals and their impact factors, among others) of a total of 8.842 articles published between 1988 and 1997 by scientists affiliated with Turkish institutions and indexed in MEDLINE, a well-known biomedical bibliographic database.
