In thesis we evaluated research productivity published in internationally recognized as well as Slovenian scientific journals by using different methodology. Using the bibliographic database Biomedicina Slovenica we analysed articles published in the period 1992-2003 in relation to the budget given to the medical field by Slovenian Research Agency. Our study suggests that the scientific production is not strictly linked to the budget. By usingWeb of Science (WoS), we have analysed researchers' publications on public health. We have found out that one third of them is included in both databases, Science Citation Index and Social Sciences Citation Index. A comparative bibliometric analysis was carried out comparing two journals Zdravstveno varstvo and European Journal of Public Health for the period 2001-2005. The results show that the number of cited references per individualarticle is much higher in European Journal of Public Health than Zdravstveno varstvo. In both cases journal citations exceed monographs, most of them being published in English. For the 7-year period (1999-2005), articles from Zdravstveno varstvo and European Journal of Public Health were retrieved, classified and statistically analysed by test 2. It has been foundout that articles on mental health, social welfare, nursing care, health policy and public health do show some statistical differences. A questionnairehas also been carried out emphasizing the usability of electronicpublishing, in scientific communication. According to respondents electronic publishing is gaining an important role in the scientific world.
