Turkish INternational Medical Publication Output Continues to Grow Fast in 1995/1996

Altan ONAT1

With the purpose of assessing the progress of the output of medical publications originating from Turkey, these were identified from the Science Citation Index compact disks SCI CD-ROM 1995 and 1996. A weighted credit system was utilized for items published jointly with a foreign or a nonmedical Turkish institution. A total of 1019 and 1260 publications were traced in the two years, respectively, which comprised 471 and 756 articles, reviews and editorials. These increases corresponded to a very fast growth of roughly doubling within two years, a trend which had emerged since 1988 and which led to a rise to 4.3 per mille of Turkey's share of world medical publication output. Following observations bolstered the nature of the progress: a stronger rise in the number of full-texed articles, extension of similar progress to medical basic sciences, rise of share of institutions in Izmir and smaller cities in Anatolia as well as of non-university hospitals. A total of 70 articles had been published in the field of cardiovascular medicine in 1995 and '96, a prominent surge which represented a world share of 3-4 per mille.
