Publication Productivity of Czech Sociology in Scientific Journals Within the Last Decade

The paper maps publication outcomes of Czech sociologists in journals with impact factor within the last decade. The methodology we employ is similar to that used in recently published work analyzing the productivity of Czech economists. Our work is based on data from the Web of Science and covers the 1998 to 2007 period. Publication outcomes for sociology are presented within the context of the whole field of social sciences. The productivity of individual authors is based on data about published articles, impact factors of journals, and co-author shares and citations. Our analysis does not provide detailed insight on publications in another most important publication channel – scientific monographs – due to non-existence of suitable quality indicators. Our analysis shows that similar authors rank among the first fifty using the selected indicators of impact factor and citation indexes. The order differs fairly strongly according to the indicator selected, however. It turns out that publication-wise, there are rather strongly differentiated groups of sociologists also in the Czech Republic.
