We have compared bibliometric data of Czech research papers generated from 1994 to 2005 with papers from six other EU countries:
Austria, Hungary, Poland, Finland, Ireland and Greece. The Czech Republic ranked the fifth in number of papers per thousand
inhabitants and the sixth in number of citations/paper. Relatively the most cited were Czech papers from fields Engineering
and Mathematics ranking the third, and Computer Science, Environment/Ecology and Molecular Biology ranking the fourth among
7 EU countries. Our analysis indicates that Czech research is lagging behind the leading EU countries, but its output is proportional
to the R&D expenses.
