Una evaluación de los índices bibliométricos I e Is de Molina-Montenegro & Gianoli aplicada a investigadores en ciencias ecológicas en Chile
Revista chilena de historia natural , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0716-078X2010000200003
Abstract: the interest in measuring the scientific output has led to an increasing number of indices being proposed. in this commentary i critically examine the indices i and is proposed by molina-montenegro & gianoli (2010; in this issue), and the criteria employed by these authors to incorporate or exclude scientists from their database of chilean researchers in ecology. i also assess the statistical relationship between the indices of scientific output i, is and hirsch's h, and the primary variables that compose them. to do that i use correlation and linear regression analyses. results show that the i index is highly associated to the number of co-authors, and keeps a high positive and significant correlation with the h index, after adjusting by log10 of the number of alocitations and the number of self-citations. this suggests that the number of co-authors and self-citations are not important predictors of the differences between h and i. in contrast, the is index decreases with scientific age, which would be an undesirable outcome, and a result of dividing the i index by the scientific age. i suggest that inspecting residuals of the regression between the log10 of the number of alocitations and the scientific age is a simple and straightforward way to assess whether a scientist should be promoted, hired or awarded.

Abstract: Today, the economy of many countries, particularly the Mediterranean ones, can not be imagined without a developed tourism industry, having in mind its multiplier effects. Thanks to the Mediterranean maritime position, which marked the historical trends and cultural development of Montenegro, as well as numerous attractions of nature and extreme tourism complementarity between the sea and mountains, one can not overestimate the importance of tourism industry in its future development. In this regard, today, tourism industry represents a strategic industry and the backbone of socio-economic development of Montenegro. Problems of its potential for tourism development have been considered by the authors of numerous scientific papers, strategic development documents, as well as spatial plans. Achievements of previous researches should be applied in practice of tourism and hotel industry in Montenegro.

Abstract: Wood biomass has got its place in the energy balance of Montenegro. A little more than 6% of the total energy consumption is obtained by burning wood. Along with the appropriate state measures, it is economically and environmentally justified to expect Montenegro to more than double the utilization of the existing renewable energy sources including wood biomass, in the near future. For the purpose of achieving this goal, ‘Commercial Utilisation of the Wood Residue as a Resource for Economic Development in the North of Montenegro' project was carried out in 2007. The results of this project were included in the plan of the necessary interventions of the Government and its Agencies, associations or clusters, non-government organisations and interested enterprises. The plan was made on the basis of the wood residue at disposal and the attitude of individual subjects to produce and/or use solid bio-fuels and consists of a proposal of collection and utilisation of the wood residue for each individual district in the north of Montenegro. The basic factors of sustainability of future commercialisation of the wood residue were: availability of the wood raw material, and thereby the wood residue; the development of wood-based fuel markets, and the size of the profit.
Regionalisation and regional policy of Montenegro  [PDF]

Journal of the Geographical Institute Jovan Cvijic, SASA , 2012, DOI: 10.2298/ijgi1201049f
Abstract: Although being a relatively small country, Montenegro is characterized by significant regional disparities. Just recently it has been administratively divided into regions, but no form of regional statistics has been developed yet and no active policy aimed at reducing regional disparities is being followed. This is due to the longstanding sentiment that the entire Montenegro is one micro region and no further division into regions is necessary. This is why the authors set three goals in writing this paper. The first one is to review the adequacy of the proposed division into regions. The second goal is to calculate relevant regional statistical indicators that would subsequently serve for the third goal of proposing economic policy recommendations aimed at diminishing regional differences.
Montenegro in the PISA Study  [PDF]

CEPS Journal : Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Montenegro, a country that has been in transition for the last two decades, is trying intensively to restructure its socioeconomic system and reform the main social systems, such as the education system, health care, the judicial system, the social welfare system, etc. Numerous strategic documents have been adopted in the past decade emphasising the importance of making the country’s abundant natural resources functional, and of making the utilisation of human resources in the country significantly more effective. In order to achieve improvements in one of the key areas of Montenegrin development, human resources, a reform of the entire education system was launched in the first years of 21st century. The processes of joining the European Union, whose fundamental principles are the free movement of people, goods, services and capital, have also significantly increased the need to raise the quality of the educationof Montenegro’s citizens and to improve the competitiveness of the Montenegrin workforce in the labour market. However, we believe that the results of PISA testing in 2006 and 2009 suggest that Montenegro is far from the proclaimed goals of reform in the field of education, and that for the coming years and decades considerable attention should be devoted to improvement of the education system. PISA tests should be understood in a much wider context, not only as a reflection of curricular reform and standards of verification and assessment of students’ knowledge, but rather as a set of guidelines that indicate the direction in which to develop and improve the education system, so that society can really ‘invest’ in the education of young people.It is a very problematic fact that from the time of testing in 2009 until April 2011, nobody in Montenegro published any technical or scientific analysis of the success, or rather failure, of Montenegrin students in PISA testing. We believe that the use of this study should be significantly increased; not for comparing academic achievements with those of students from other countries, but primarily for improving educational policy and defining the strategic orientation of the development of the education system in Montenegro. Therefore, the absence of analysis implies an absence of certain professional activities focused on training teachers and improving the quality of students’ knowledge.

Abstract: Vector borne transmissible zoonoses are becoming more and more important in the group of emerging and re-emerging infections. We present the characteristics and actuality of this group of infectious diseases in Montenegro for the period 1998 - 2011. In examinations, standard epidemiological, clinical, serological, pathohistological diagnostic methods are employed. Natural conditions in Montenegro make it an important endemic area for more vector borne transmissible zoonoses. The changes of ecological characteristics, the vectors and infective agents, present the accidence for expansion and increasing importance of these infections in national pathology. According to the fact that it is an international port of nautical, continental and air traffic, Montenegro has responsibility for control and management of diseases belonging to the group of the travel and tropical diseases.

Abstract: Seven important tobacco viruses were investigated in Montenegro in 2005: Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV), Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV), Cucumber Mosaic Virus (CMV), Potato Virus Y (PVY), Alfalfa Mosaic Virus (AMV), Tobacco Ring Spot Virus (TRSV) and Potato Virus X(PVX). This investigation included sample collection from four tobacco growing regions in Montenegro and their serological testing by DAS-ELISA test. Presence of different strains of PVY was investigated as well using DAS ELISA test with specific monoclonal antibodies.Serological results proved the presence of four tobacco viruses (TMV, CMV, PVY and AMV), while TSWV, TRSV and PVX were not found in the tested samples of tobacco crops in Montenegro. The results also showed that TMV and CMV were the most frequent (44.6% and 41.5% of tested samples, respectively) followed by PVY (15.4%) and the least frequent AMV (3.1%). Most samples were infected with one of the examined viruses. In the PVY population found in Montenegro, its necrotic strain (PVYN) was absolutely predominant.The results indicated the significance of TMV and CMV concerning tobacco viral infections in Montenegro, as well as a necessity of their detailed characterization at biological and molecular level.

Hereditary Cancer in Clinical Practice , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1897-4287-4-1-12
Abstract: Knowledge of the molecular basis of hereditary disorders has greatly expanded during the last ten years and the principle of genetic testing has been introduced into the clinical practice of Western countries. In these countries, with the USA being among the first, genetic testing for known germline mutations associated with high lifetime cancer risk, for example those involved in familial adenomatous polyposis, introduced the use of consensus data into medical practice. Simultaneously, inventories (maps) of hereditary disorders with frequency and spectra of gene mutations causing particular hereditary diseases were constructed in the majority of European countries. The delay in transition and European integration of our country has reflected also on the status of the investigation of hereditary disorders, including hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC), resulting in the fact that our country is currently without such a national inventory of its hereditary disorders.Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers diagnosed in women worldwide and a leading cause of female cancer-related death, despite improvements made in the field of risk factor definition, early detection, diagnostics and treatment of the disease. In central and south-eastern European countries, incidence and mortality trends also show an increment, due to recent changes in risk factors (smoking, age at menarche, age at first pregnancy, oestrogen intake, etc.). In Serbia and Montenegro, breast cancer is the most frequent malignancy and the leading cause of cancer-related death in females as well, with a reported mortality rate of 16.9 (ASRw) in the year 2000 [1]. Approximately 3,900 new cases of breast cancer are detected in Serbia and Montenegro each year. Twelve hundred of these cases are newly diagnosed at the Institute of Oncology and Radiology of Serbia.A subset of breast cancer patients with striking family histories is suggestive of Mendelian inheritance of breast cancer risk factors a
