RODRIGUEZ, Héctor  y  RODRIGUEZ, Mayra G. Revista de Protección Vegetal: Bibliometric analysis of the papers published from 2000 to 2012. Rev. Protección Veg. [online]. 2013, vol.28, n.2, pp. 109-119. ISSN 1010-2752.

The objective of the current paper was to examine the scientific production contained in the «Revista de Protección Vegetal» in the period 2000-2012by using bibliometric indexes of production and consumption. With data collected from each paper published, a database was built with the type of document, the language used, the authors and their affiliations, and the topic discussed. The references used were also examined, and the year of publication, the type of document and the language used were considered. In total, the database contains 464 papers and 7 340 references. In each volumen, an average of 35 papers were published, with more than 50% as original papers; the predominant language was Spanish. Productivity was low in 60.53% of the authors, medium in 33.44%, and only 6.07% of them were highly productive. The analysis of the references cited in the papers presented a low Price`s index (32.03%) with a decreasing trend. Biological control, mass rearing of natural enemies, studies on pest bioecology and diagnosis methods were the more frequent topics approached. Of the references consulted, 63.99% were papers in scientific journal, followed by books (12.75%) and conference papers (7.60%). Sixty five per cent of the references were in English, and they showed a low isolation rate (23.9%). The results achieved during the period examined showed a steady rise of the journal visibilityafter its inclusion in the Scientific Electronic Library Online and the more recent incorporation to the Directory of Open Access Journals, with an impact factor increasing from 0.15 in 2010 to 0.23 in 2011.
