Bibliometric analysis: Slovenian Journal of Public Health vs. European Journal of Public Health
Science would not exist without the publication of research results. Publishing the results of scientific research is the basic characteristic of the process of scientific information and communication. The impact of a local scientific journal, which does not lag behind an international journal in terms of quality, in an international area, is possible only if it is concurrently published in English. Comparison of the results of bibliometric analysis of the Slovenian Journal of Public Health (SJPH) and the European Journal of Public Health (EJPH) for the period 2003-2011, has led as to the conclusion that the SJPH is not behind EJPH. Therefore, Slovenian scientists could also publish the results of their research projects as scientific papers in local scientific journals.
