DORTA CONTRERAS, Alberto Juan. Proposal of scientific production indicators for the teaching evaluation of higher education professors in the health sector. Educ Med Super [online]. 2008, vol.22, n.2. ISSN 0864-2141.

AIM: to present a proposal of scientific production indicators for evaluating the higher education professors in the health sector, taking into account the qualitative and quantitative aspects and the professor's rank. DEVELOPMENT: two indicators were proposed: the yearly ranking of the professor or researcher, and the professors' golden profile. The first tries to combine the qualitative bibliometric aspects with the quantitative and the rank of the professor or researcher to be evaluated. The second is aimed at stimulating those professors, whose articles have been more cited in high impact journals, that is, those most cited, and at arranging the results according to different criteria, such as the number of times a specific document or author has been cited or consulted, based on the parameters supporting the international bibliometric databases. CONCLUSIONS: the search of new indicators reflecting the realities and purposes that should be encouraged in higher medical education will allow the professionals to overcome the gap that separates them from scientific productivity in relation to other Cuban and Latin American universities.
