GALLARDO SANCHEZ, Yurieth; GALLARDO ARZUAGA, Ruber Luis; FONSECA ARIAS, Madelin  y  PEREZ ATENCIO, María Esther. Bibliometric characterization of EDUMECENTRO through indicators of SciELO, Cuba. EDUMECENTRO [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.2, pp.46-62. ISSN 2077-2874.

Background: Adequate and updated access to scientific and technical information is essential for socio-economic development, decision-making and professional practice. Objective: to characterize the scientific production through SciELO statistics and indicators that allows quantifying the use and impact of EDUMECENTRO from 2012 to the first half of 2016. Methods: A descriptive study with a retrospective approach was carried out on EDUMECENTRO's scientific production, using theoretical methods: historical-logical, analytical-synthetic and inductive-deductive, and documentary analysis as an empirical method. The results obtained are shown in graphs and contingency tables by absolute numbers and percentage. Results: the statistics of production, visibility, impact and reference were characterized. The year with the greatest number of articles published was 2014, in this predominated the access to references to the published numbers. The impact factors for two and three years decreased, which does not necessarily mean that the impact of the journal is declining, since the behavior of citations is cumulative. The fascicles were shown with more than one hundred accesses by the scientific community. Conclusions: the indicators studied place the magazine in the first places of the region. The published articles are consubstantial with the volumes in the year. Citations received from the publishing house and country of publication are predominant. The impact factor decreased, a fact that was taken in a self-critical way for the perfection of the editorial process, essential in the researching tasks.
