Abstract

AIM: The aims of this paper are: to analyze Macedonian biomedical journals in the Google Scholar database with the software Publish or Perish, to present their current scientific impact, to rank the journals, and to advice the authors about the possibilities where to publish their papers.


MATERIAL AND METHODS: Biomedical journals in the Republic of Macedonia included in Macedonian Association of Medical Editors (MAME) are analyzed. The results are obtained with the software Publish or Perish which analyze publicly available scholarly papers in the Google Scholar database (May 11, 2016).


RESULTS: From 38 journals only 25 has indexed one or more papers in the Google Scholar database. The rest of 13 journals are without any paper indexed in this base and are not included in this investigation. The biggest number of citations in the Google Scholar database have the journals Prilozi - MANU, 0351-3254 (1622); Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences, 1857-5773 (838) and Macedonian Journal of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, 1857-5552 (705).


CONCLUSIONS: Macedonian biomedical journals have limited scientific influence, although the last years several journals are significantly improved and are included in the more important international scientific databases. Further coordinated efforts through MZMU are necessary in order to increase the scientific contribution of Macedonian biomedical journals.
