Measuring the scientific performance at the level of higher education is, globally, the task assumed by numerous organizations who are trying to develop different rankings concerning the ability of the Universities to offer degree programmes or careers in scientific research. Several strategies used for promoting the Universities are based upon the international relevance of the results produced by the scientific research. This is the reason why the eastern European Universities have progressively invested significant financial resources in scientific research, having the support of the national governments or through partnerships with other European universities. Many states have adopted a strategy aimed at increasing the results of the main scientific rating indicators: ISI articles, citations of ISI articles, books published by internationally recognized publishers, EPO, USPTO and JPO patents. The aim of this study is to elaborate a comparative analysis between the performance in scientific research for six internationally recognized Universities in Bulgaria (Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski"), Croatia (University of Zagreb), Poland (AGH Krakow), Romania (Al. I. Cuza Iasi University), Serbia (Novi-Sad University) and Slovakia (Comenius University Bratislava), more or less differentiated according to the fields covered by the offer of programs and scientific studies.
