In recent years a number of studies have focused on Argentina’s 2001 economic crisis and its political, social, and institutional
repercussions. To date, however, no studies have analyzed its effects upon the country’s scientific system from a scientometric
perspective, in terms of resources dedicated to scientific activity and the final output and impact. The present study does
so by means of a set of scientometric indicators that reflect economic effort, human resources dedicated to research, publications,
collaborative relations, and the international visibility of scientific contributions.
