About

Bibliometric analysis of Greek publications in international journals has been the topic of a series of publications produced by EKT. Reliable data and a number of standard indicators used in bibliometrics record the performance of the Greek scientific community in publications and the impact of their research work internationally.

Scientific publications in journals are the traditional indicator of research activities. It is customary to evaluate the results of research activities based on the number of scientific articles produced and the share the articles have on the global map, the share of citations the articles received, the collaborations formed to produce them and other standard bibliometric indicators.

This series of EKT publications included bibliometric analysis and data from the Web of Science and Scopus databases. Using indicators from the two most established international databases, EKT aims to give a fuller picture of key indicators of production in the country and expand the number of Greek publications and scientific fields covered. Each study covers a period of ten years and is published on a yearly basis (the Web of Science every even-numbered year and Scopus every odd-numbered year).

The indicators are presented not only in printed form but also with interactive charts, which provide readers with multifaceted specialised information. They give aggregates for Greece and show the position of the country on a Europeean and global level, present the performances of different categories of organisations (Universities, TEI, Research Centres, Hospitals etc) and give data analysis for over 80 Greek organisations systematically producing scientific publications.
