Abstract
In the last decades, the digitalization more and more actively penetrates into the sphere of scientometrics. The problem of objective evaluation of the results of scientific activities, including the issue on the possibility of using bibliometric (statistical, mathematical) evaluation of the publication activities, citation, and, at the last, of the scientists’ authority, is in the center of discussions in the last decades. This article provides the materials of bibliometric analysis of the publication activities and citation of the widely known contemporary teachers and psychologists, based on the data of the Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI). The data on ranking scientists by the number of publications, by the number of citations and by Hirsh-index (h-index) have been compared. The factors, favouring active citation and, simultaneously, high h-index have been distinguished: relevant authority of the correspondent magazines and publishers, belonging to the actively developing scientific directions, work in the leading universities and academic scientific institutes. The provided materials not only reflect the scientific merits of the leading specialists, but also show methodological and paradigmal tendencies of the Russian science development in whole. In particular, it has been revealed, that the scientific ratings of the psychologists, as a rule, are higher, than the ratings of the pedagogics specialists. It is also demonstrative, that the increased publication activity and citation are characteristic for the scientists, who work in the sphere of special psychology and pedagogics. The scientometric ratings may be intended not only for precise scientists, but also for the scientific collectives or scientific organizations. In particular, the examined materials show, that the absolute majority of the specialists with high h-index work at the academic institutes and leading metropolitan universities. The article materials may be used at discussion of the scientists’ activity efficiency criteria.
