International Cardiovascular Publications from Turkey Surged in 2001
Publications in cardiovascular medicine originating from Turkey's institutions were identified from the data of the Web of Science in order to assess the progress of the output. After deletion of meeting abstracts and letters to the editor, articles in full-text appearing in source publications of Science Citation Index CD Edition alone were included. A weighted credit system was utilized for items published jointly with a foreign or a noncardiological Turkish institution. A total of 99 articles and reviews were identified which represented an increase by 47% over the previous year, raising Turkey's share of world publication output in cardiovascular medicine to 6.9 per mille. Cardiology with 81 articles resumed an overwhelming position, ahead of cardiovascular surgery with 16, and pediatric cardiology with 2 articles. Median impact factor of source publications was 1.0. Turkey's Advanced Specialty Hospital led this year in publications putting Hacettepe U. into second place. Furthermore, universities of Yüzüncü Yıl, Dicle and Karadeniz ranked among centers exhibiting a great leap forward.
