Abstract

A bibliometric study of journal publications on analytical chemistry 2000-2007 focusing on the field of analytical chemistry is presented. The study involved performing different crossed searches using Boolean operators in the Web of Science database from the Institute of Scientific Information. The fields used were the country associated with the corresponding author, the source and the document type. Only journals that mostly publish full research articles were considered. After analyzing the data extracted from these five journals, slight differences were observed between the ranks of the countries in the narrower study and those in the wider study. The countries from the EU that contribute most to the top journal in analytical chemistry (Analytical Chemistry) are Germany and the UK, which are far ahead of their European competitors. One clear conclusion of this study is that the contribution of China has increased greatly; it now has one of the highest publication rates of any country.
