Статистический анализ дифференциации российских регионов по уровню публикационной активности
Nowadays, efficiency of scientific work is widely measured by publication performance. This procedure is mostly implemented on a micro level only: a scientist, a department, a university, etc. At the same time, there is no systemic mechanism or measurement structure on a sub-national level while other indices, including expenditures on scientific research are determined and planned on the regional level. This article proposes inter-temporal and inter-regional empirical analyses of the above-mentioned phenomenon on the subnational level of the Russian Federation. The authors argue that such an approach could be quite useful and effective for monitoring the situation on the sub-national level as it could create some additional opportunities. The research also embraces the cluster analysis of regional publications in the Russian Federation. The authors pay special attention to regional differentiation by Scopus/Web of Science, HAC and RSCI publications.
