Bibliometric methods for analyzing and describing research output have been supported internationally by the
establishment and operation of organizations such as the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) or Scimago Ranking Institutions
(SRI). This study provides an overview of the research performance of major World countries in the field cytokines,
Citometric bead assays and QSAR, the most important journals in which they published their research articles, and
the most important academic institutions publishing them. The analysis was based on Thomson Scientific’s Web of Science
(WoS), and Scimago group calculated bibliometric indicators of publication activity and actual citation impact.
Studying the time period 2005–2010, and shows the visibility of Medicinal Chemistry Bioorganic in this thematic noting
that the visibility of a journal must take into account not only the impact factor, but the prestige, popularity and representativeness
of the theme that addresses the same making a comprehensive assessment of bibliometric indicators.
