National Documentation Centre: Rise of Greek Research Papers in International Scientific Periodicals

Greek research papers are gaining ground in terms of their position and appeal in international academic periodicals, based on a study unveiled by the country’s National Documentation Centre on Tuesday.
The study conducted by Dr. Evi Sahini covered from 1996-2010, and found a steady increase in the number of Greek papers published up until 2008, which fell in the years 2009-2010. It is published at, and will soon be available in English.
Based on the findings, Greece contributes 2.4 percent of scientific papers published in the European Union and 1.14 percent of those published in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). This almost doubled the country’s share relative to 1996, bringing it to 20th place among the 34 OECD countries.
In terms of citations, Greece had the fastest rate of increase relative to EU and OECD countries from 1996-2010, while during 2006-2010 Greek papers received 222,132 citations and almost quadrupled the equivalent rate in 1996-2010.
During 2006-2010, Greek papers received 4.49 citations on average, up from 3.82 in 2004-2008, while the average number of citations in the EU was 5.34 and in the OECD it was 5.43.
There was also an improvement in the percentage of Greek papers cited, which rose to 65.5 percent and approached the EU average (66.3 percent) and the OECD average (66.5 percent). In the same five-year period, 509 Greek papers were classified among the top 1 percent of most-cited papers, 2,393 were in the top 5 percent, 4,591 were in the top 10 percent, 11,024 in the top 25 percent and 20,190 in the top 50 percent.
The vast majority, or 82.5 percent, of Greek papers published were carried out with the participation of state universities, followed by independent research centres (13.7 percent), public health organizations (11.5 percent), technical educational institutes (4.6 percent), other public research bodies (3.3 percent). Private health organizations accounted for another 2.8 percent and other private research foundations for 1.8 percent.
The study also found an increase in the papers published in collaboration with other Greek or foreign research bodies, with the rate approaching the OECD and EU average at 67.2 percent.
