Gutiérrez,José María;
Revista de Biología Tropical , 2002,
Abstract: the contributions published in revista de biología tropical in the area of biomedical sciences are reviewed in terms of number of contributions and scope of research subjects. biomedical sciences, particularly parasitology and microbiology, constituted the predominant subject in the revista during the first decade, reflecting the intense research environment at the sebool of microbiology of the university of costa rica and at hospital san juan de dios. the relative weight of biomedicine in the following decades diminished, due to the outstanding increment in publications in biological sciences; however, the absolute number of contributions in biomedical sciences remained constant throughout the last decades, with around 80 contributions per decade. in spite of the predominance of parasitology as the main biomedical subject, the last decades have witnessed the emergence of new areas of interest in the revista, such as pharmacology of natural products, toxinology, especially related to snake venoms, and human genetics. this retrospective analysis evidences that biomedical sciences, particularly those related to tropical medicine, were a fundamental component during the first years of revista de biología tropical, and have maintained a significant presence in the scientific output of this journal, the most relevant scientific publication in biological sciences in central america.

Revista de Biología Tropical , 2002,
Abstract: the first paper published in the revista de biología tropical (rbt) on anything related to marine science was in 1963. since then the number of marine-related papers has increased to 637, which represents 27% of the total production of rbt (excluding the supplements), and 33% since 1979. most publications are full articles on ecology (135 papers). the marine ecosystem of which there is more publications is the coral reefs (28); and fish is the most studied taxonomic group (165). almost half of the supplements are marine related (12). the rbt must continue its efforts to maintain itself as a leading marine science publication in latin america.

Revista de Biología Tropical , 2002,
Abstract: En este trabajo se presenta un análisis temático de los trabajos de ciencias biomédicas publicados en la Revista de Biología Tropical durante sus 50 a os de existencia. Las ciencias biomédicas, principalmente la Parasitología y la Microbiología, fueron el tema predominante en la Revista durante su primera década de existencia, como reflejo del dinámico y productivo ambiente de investigación existente alrededor de la Facultad de Microbiología de la Universidad de Costa Rica y del Hospital San Juan de Dios. El peso relativo de temas de investigación biomédica disminuyó paulatinamente en las décadas subsiguientes, aunque el número absoluto de contribuciones biomédicas se ha mantenido constante, con una media de cerca de 80 trabajos por década. La Parasitología ha sido el tema predominante en las publicaciones de tipo biomédico en la Revista; sin embargo, en las últimas décadas han aparecido publicaciones en una serie de temas como Farmacología de productos naturales, Toxinología, especialmente relacionada con venenos de serpientes y Genética Humana, lo cual ha ampliado el espectro temático de las ciencias biomédicas en los índices de la Revista. Este análisis retrospectivo evidencia claramente que las ciencias biomédicas, particularmente las relacionadas con Medicina Tropical, jugaron un papel fundamental en los primeros a os de existencia de la Revista de Biología Tropical y han mantenido una presencia relevante durante las últimas décadas en esta publicación, sin duda la más importante y sólida de la región centroamericana en ciencias naturales.

Revista de Biología Tropical , 2002,
Abstract: El primer artículo sobre cualquier tema marino fue publicado en 1963 y desde entonces ha venido aumentando el número de publicaciones marinas hasta llegar a 637. Este número representa el 27% de todos los artículos publicados en la RBT (excluyendo los Suplementos) y el 33% desde 1979. La mayoría son Artículos de Fondo principalmente sobre Ecología (135 trabajos). De los ecosistemas marinos sobre el que más se ha publicado es los arrecifes coralinos (28) y los peces es el grupo taxonónico del que hay más trabajos (165). Casi la mitad de los Suplementos o Números Especiales de la RBT son sobre temas marinos. La RBT debe realizar esfuerzos para mantenerse a la cabeza en publicaciones marinas en América Latina.

Since then the number of marine-related papers has increased to 637, which represents 27% of the total production of RBT (excluding the Supplements), and 33% since 1979. Most publications are Full Articles on Ecology (135 papers). The marine ecosystem of which there is more publications is the coral reefs (28); and fish is the most studied taxonomic group (165). Almost half of the Supplements are marine related (12). The RBT must continue its efforts to maintain itself as a leading marine science publication in Latin America.

Zootecnia Tropical , 2003,
Abstract: summary zootecnia tropical journal, edited by the national institute of agricultural research (instituto nacional de investigaciones agropecuarias, venezuela) was analyzed through a set of bibliometric indicators. this analysis included 246 articles that constitute the collection from volume 1 to 19, 33 issues in total, between years 1985 and 2001. venezuelan agricultural bibliography database was used as source of data, and an ad hoc procedure. there were determined several supply and demand indicators that characterize the journal, showing the first indicators about its impact on research and academic sectors in the country. results showed that the journal had favorable bibliometric indicators; a growth index of 3.22 in average, a growing number of authors and institutions, as well as typical values of productivity indicators for domestic journals. presence in internet is discussed in relation to the access of electronically available journals. such information provides valuable indicators in the decision making process to help the improvement of the journal positioning and a more solid scientific status.

Revista de Biología Tropical , 2012,
Abstract: Central America is recognized as a mega diverse “hot-spot” and one of its smaller countries, Costa Rica, as one of the world’s leaders in the study and conservation of tropical biodiversity. For this study, inspired by the 60th anniversary of the journal Revista de Biología Tropical, we tabulated all the scientific production on Costa Rican biodiversity published in Revista de Biología Tropical between 2000 and 2010. Most articles are zoological (62%) and 67% of authors had only one publication in the jounal within that period. A 54% of articles were published in English and 46% in Spanish. A 41% of articles were written in collaboration among Costa Rican institutions and 36% in collaboration with foreign institutions. The Collaboration Index was 2.53 signatures per article. Visibility in American sources was 56% in Google Scholar and 42.66% in the Web of Science, but the real visibility and impact are unknown because these sources exclude the majority of tropical journals. Revista de Biología Tropical is the main output channel for Costa Rican biology and despite its small size, Costa Rica occupies the 10th. place in productivity among Latin American countries, with productivity and impact levels that compare favorably with larger countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Chile. América Central es reconocida como región mega- diversa y uno de sus países más peque os, Costa Rica, se encuentra entre los líderes mundiales en el estudio y conservación de la biodiversidad tropical. Este estudio, inspirado por el 60 aniversario de la Revista de Biología Tropical, actualiza nuestro conocimiento bibliométrico sobre la materia. Hicimos un listado de toda la producción científica sobre la biodiversidad de Costa Rica en la Revista entre 2000 y 2010. La mayoría de los artículos son zoológicos (62%) y el 67% de los autores sólo tuvo una publicación en la revista durante ese periodo. Un 54% de los artículos fueron publicados en inglés y un 46% en espa ol. Un 41% de los artículos fueron escritos por autores de instituciones de Costa Rica y el 36% en colaboración con instituciones extranjeras. El índice de Colaboración fue de 2.53 firmas por artículo. La visibilidad en fuentes estadounidenses fue de 56% en Google Scholar y 42.66% en Web of Science, pero el impacto real se desconoce porque estas dos fuentes de datos excluyen a la mayoría de las revistas tropicales. Revista de Biología Tropical es el principal canal de salida de la biología costarricense y, a pesar de su peque o tama o, Costa Rica ocupa el décimo lugar en productividad entre los países de América
