Bibliometric methods are used in multiple fields for a variety of purposes, namely for research evaluation. Most bibliometric analyses have in common their data sources: Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science (WoS) and Elsevier’s Scopus. The objective of this research is to describe the journal coverage of those two databases and to assess whether some field,(More)
Gender disparities persist in several areas of society and scientific research is no exception. This study describes the evolution of the place of women in Russian science from 1973 to 2012, in terms of published research output, research productivity, international and national collaboration, and scientific impact, taking into account the socioeconomic,(More)

Over the last two decades, emerging countries located outside North America and Europe have reshaped the global economy. These countries are also increasing their share of the world’s scientific output. This paper analyzes the evolution of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and G-7 countries’ international scientific collaboration, and(More)
Building on the concepts of the reward system of science and social capital, Blaise Cronin brought forth the idea that rewards in science are threefold, forming a triangle built from authorship, citations, and acknowledgements. Of these, acknowledgments are the hardest to grasp and evaluate. After nearly 45 years of multidisciplinary research on(More)
The gender gap in science has been the focus of many analyses which have, for the most part, documented lower research productivity and citation impact for papers authored by female researchers. Given the rise of scholarly use of social media to disseminate scientific production and the healthy proportion of women on these sites, further investigation of(More)
