Scholars Look at Publication Activity in Post-Soviet Countries

75% of papers published in post-Soviet countries are by Russian researchers. In total, about 3% of all papers published globally are from post-Soviet countries. The role of universities has grown over the last 30 years, with over half of all recent academic papers being made with the participation of university researchers. These are the conclusions made in a study of publication activity by scholars in post-Soviet countries.

A paper by Andrey Lovakov and Maria Yudkevich is published in Higher Education

The paper “The Post-Soviet Publication Landscape for Higher Education Research” by Andrey Lovakov, Research Fellow at CInSt, and Maria Yudkevich, Director of CInSt, has been published in Higher Education.

CInSt team received the grant of the Russian Science Foundation

The grant funds the project "The structure and paths of science in the post-Soviet space: institutional practices and bibliometric analysis". The aim is to compare the development of science in post-Soviet countries in a dynamic perspective. The results of the project will make possible to assess the current state of research in post-Soviet countries, understand the paths of their development over the past 30 years, and evaluate their success.

A new paper in Higher Education Quarterly by Andrey Lovakov, Maria Yudkevich and Olga Alipova

This paper studies the publication productivity of inbreds and non‐inbreds among Russian academics. The authors did not find any difference in current publication productivity of inbreds and non‐inbreds. However, they found a difference in the cumulative publication productivity: non‐inbreds are being more productive on an individual level throughout their careers.
