Több mint tíz éve vezetek gender-kurzust a Semmelweis Egyetemen, 1998 óta vannak gender-témájú Európai Uniós pályázataink. Egészségügyi és népesedési szempontból a gender-kutatások lényege, hogy az átalakult kulturális, történelmi-tárasadalmi helyzetben hogy lehet új típusú együttműködést kialakítani nők és férfiak között, ez hogyan függ össze a testi-lelki egészségi állapottal és a demográfiai helyzettel. Fontos kérdéskör, hogy a nemi szerepek átalakulásával létrejött új helyzetben hogyan lehet megelőzni negatív népegészségügyi és népesedési következményeket. Az általunk szervezett Hungarostudy felmérésekben ezért kezdettől nagy hangsúllyal szerepeltek ezek a kérdések. A jelen gender-különszám ezekből a kutatási eredményekből nyújt részleges áttekintést. Törekeszünk arra is, hogy a témában megjelent eddigi publikációinkból is minél teljesebb körű áttekintést adjunk.

In 34.8% of the articles involved participation by at least one of the 15 European Union countries. After adjustment for population and GDP, the Scandinavian countries, The Netherlands, and Australia holding the leading positions.

Abstract

Introduction  The present study endeavours to provide information on what are the research interests of Brazilian Public Health and how authors can be ranked. Methods  Post-graduate faculty members ISI data are analysed according to regions. Number of paper and its citations, papers’ type-complexity-cooperation, Bradford’s Law, Shannon’s indexes, time dynamic functions, Lotka’s Law, and ranking functions are examined. Results  Current production was built up in the last 30 years at a rate of 9.6% articles/year and 12.6% citations/year. 66% of potential authors were present in ISI data records, 64% achieved at least one citation. Research fields do not much depart from the traditional PH purview. More than 66% of authors have just one paper and decrease is steep. Subtle differences call attention to the South region. Conclusion  Brazilian PH is mainly committed to classical research fields and ranking among authors is narrow.

Abstract  

The study seeks to identify the influence of local and regional publications in the production of public health research papers in the Latin American region. A citation analysis of the papers published in the following three leading journals in the field of public health was conducted: Revista Médica de Chile (Chile) (RMCh); Archivos Latinoamericanos de Nutrición (Venezuela) (ALAN); and Salud Pública de México (México) (SPM). Papers were analyzed for the period 2003–2007. SciELO (Scientific Electronic Library Online) and the printed version of the journals were used in the analysis. Overall, 1,273 papers from 122 journal issues were analyzed. References accounted for a total of 38,459. Over 90% of the production was published through the collaboration of two or more authors. Author affiliation corresponded in most cases to the country of origin of the journal. References to Portuguese papers accounted for nearly 5% in ALAN and less than 1% each in SPM and RMCh. Citations among the three journals were not significant. Only ALAN cited RMCh and SPM over 3% each, of total citations. SPM and RMCh cited each other less than 1% of total citations. With the exception of ALAN, most public health papers published in RMCh and SPM derived from the national collaboration of researchers in the field. A small amount of public health knowledge communication was being transferred from Brazil to the region through RMCh and SPM. A vertical and individual (per journal/country) model of knowledge communication in public health was identified.
