A quantitative analysis of Turkish publication output in physics between 1938–1987

Uzun, A.
The output of a total of 860 publications in physics for the period 1938–1987 is used to analyse the mainstream of physics research in Turkey. The productivity and growth characteristics of the research in experimental and theoretical areas as well as in different subfields and institutions in the country are briefly discussed. The total output is also assessed by its citation impact.


A bibliometric analysis of physics publications from Middle Eastern countries
Uzun, A (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1996-06-01)
I studied the publication efforts in physics in Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Turkey in terms of a total number of 2368 papers from these countries in international journals for 1990-1994. I looked for the national contributions, main subjects of activity, journal preferences of authors, and co-authorship patterns. Comparisons show that physicists from Egypt and Turkey combined, produced 75% of the total publication output. Half of the Egyptian papers went only to 16% of a set of 115 j...
The Renyi Capacity and Center
Nakiboğlu, Barış (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-02-01)
Renyi's information measures-the Renyi information, mean, capacity, radius, and center-are analyzed relying on the elementary properties of the Renyi divergence and the power means. The van Erven-Harremoes conjecture is proved for any positive order and for any set of probability measures on a given measurable space and a generalization of it is established for the constrained variant of the problem. The finiteness of the order alpha Renyi capacity is shown to imply the continuity of the Renyi capacity on (...
Publication patterns of Turkish astronomers
Uzun, A; Ozel, ME (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1996-09-01)
We studied 187 papers published in the journals on astronomy and astrophysics indexed in the Science Citation Index (SCI) for the decade period 1985-1994. These have been the papers that included at least one author listing an address from an institution in Turkey. We found that a great majority of the papers, whether theoretical or observational, went to only very small number (three) of a total set of 34 journals in the area. The distribution of papers by institutions revealed that about three fourths of ...
UZUN, A; MENARD, A; OZEL, ME (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1993-09-01)
We have studied the citation rates and characteristics of 572 Turkish physics publications that appeared in the source journals listed in the Science Citation Index (SCI) for the period 1982-1990 to drive the following results: The papers appeared in a set of 94 journals, and 68% of the total output went to 21 of these; half of which are journals of high impact. On the average, papers from Turkey that appeared in the American and European journals are cited at rates higher than the corresponding ''average''...
An assessment of Turkish science and technology policies, 1983-2005 : a sectoral analysis
Bürken, Serkan; Erdil, Erkan; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2007)
The main aim of this dissertation is to evaluate Turkish science and technology policy documents, namely “Turkish Science Policy: 1983-2003”, “Turkish Science and Technology Policy: 1993-2003”, “National Science and Technology Policy: 2003-2023 Strategy Document”, and Turkish ever-first foresight study “Vision 2023”; to discuss the impacts of those documents to Turkish science and technology and make some further policy recommendations for the future. For this reason, first, the history of Turkish science a...
