Abstract

En este documento se realiza una descripción de la producción científica colombiana en las disciplinas de medicina social y medicina básica para la base de datos Thompson ISI en el periodo comprendido entre 1975 y 2005. La caracterización de medicina social permite observar una baja producción de artículos internacionales de alto impacto propios de la disciplina, pues los artículos más citados siempre se encontraban clasificados en más de una disciplina; caso contrario al de medicina básica. De otra parte, se observa una alta concentración de los artículos de medicina social en publicaciones relacionadas con salud pública, siendo éstas una mayoría significativa dentro de la disciplina. A su vez, en las dos disciplinas es posible identificar una alta concentración de las citaciones en pocos artículos, siendo mayor en medicina social, reflejando un menor impacto promedio de las publicaciones en esta disciplina. Por último, los documentos más citados en medicina social se caracterizan por su interdisciplinariedad, colaboración internacional, interacción entre instituciones públicas y privadas, al igual que métodos no convencionales. **********We present the description of Colombian scientific production on social medicine and basic medicine disciplines using ISI-Thopmson data base for the period between 1975 and 2005. From the characterization of social medicine we identify the lowest production rate on health disciplines; we also observe that the higher citation rate on this discipline is presented on articles classified in more than one discipline, showing that not only the production is low but also its impact; conversely, we observe that basic medicine has higher production rates and citations per articles. Furthermore, we identify the importance of public health for social medicine production, so we decide to characterize this category alone. Moreover, we find in both disciplines, especially on social medicine, that there are few articles which concentrate the higher number of citations; this reflects the lower medium impact of social medicine articles. Finally, we observe that the highest cited articles on social medicine have special characteristics, such as international collaboration, public and private interactions, and non conventional procedures.
