Many works dealing with the transition to the market economy in both the world and national literature has formed the area of concern of many Romanian researchers over the period 1990 – 2003. This working paper is dealing with scientometrics and the scientific evaluation of the theoretical works in the economic research field. The paper reviews the national economic academic publications, specialized publications and newspapers including important economic pages, describes the citation analysis method and makes an attempt to set a relevance indicator of the national works in our research field. The indicator (in absolute and relative form) is based on the method of giving marks to the publications in which the study appears and includes a multiplier (internationality coefficient) for calculating compound scores.
