Abstract

During 1998-2000, the UK published 4,729 scientific articles per million inhabitants, the Czech Republic published only 1,401 and Turkey 278 (Sandelin & Sarafoglou, 2003). Each year, researchers produce about 2,000,000 refereed articles for 20,000 scientific journals (Harnad, 2003), the huge majority of them being printed in western countries. The contribution of developing countries to these publications is marginal. In 2000 India published less than 2% of world scientific articles. China’s share was about 3% and Brazil 1% (OST, 2004).
