Objective: Despite the rapid increase in economy and general scientific activities, it is thought that the same increase may not be seen in publication quality. We aimed at evaluating the current scientific performance of our country in the field of anaesthesiology in international journals with a high impact value from 2008 to the present.
Methods: The list of anaesthesiology journals in the Science Citation Index (SCI) and SCI-Expanded (SCI/SCI-E) index and the ISSN numbers were obtained. The studies published in these journals from Turkey and from 2007 to September 2018 were listed. The year of publication, subject, method and number of citations and the conducting institution of each study were recorded. Institutions with the highest publications and institutions with the highest number of citations were identified.
Results: A total of 3,486 articles were found. Of them, 583 (16.7%) publications were from Turkey. The highest number of publications was in 2018 (14.4%) and the lowest was in 2015 (5.3%).
Conclusion: Although there seems to be a significant increase in the number of publications in recent years, the same increase is not reflected in the publication quality evaluation criteria and there is no increase in the number of prospective randomised controlled trials and citations.
