Abstract

This work presents the results of the first bibliometric study of scientific papers in the field of cardiology in Israel. Using a computer-aided search (Medline), papers published in three selected years (1978, 1983 and 1988) were compared with respect to quantity, type and topic of publication and impact factor. An activity index was designed to measure the relative academic effort devoted to the field of cardiology in Israel. A survey of several cardiological publications worldwide was also carried out. The impact factor and the activity index of Israeli publications markedly increased from 1978 to 1983 but decreased between 1983 and 1988. The ratio of Israeli to world cardiological publications increased from 1978 to 1983, but remained unchanged between 1983 and 1988.
