          Abstract

          Resumen: La generación de conocimiento científico responde, en la actualidad, a un esquema primordialmente colaborativo que transita gradualmente de lo institucional hacia lo internacional. Las ciencias sociales y artes y humanidades latinoamericanas se adhieren a esta tendencia; sin embargo, su colaboración internacional se ha orientado a un esquema asimétrico en términos de inclusión: sólo un sector de países se ha sumado, mientras que otro grupo significativo permanece aislado; participación: las interacciones están concentradas por los países con más ciencia escrita; e integración: se tiende a una colaboración de tipo norte-sur. El análisis que se presenta del diálogo científico latinoamericano internacional considera el periodo 2005-2015 y se recurre a redalyc.org por su representatividad en lo disciplinar y regional, partiendo de un universo de 10,332 interacciones de investigadores de la región. Se concluye que dichas tendencias de colaboración internacional se desprenden como efectos del actual sistema de comunicación y evaluación de la ciencia.

          Abstract: The generation of scientific knowledge now responds to a primordially collaborative schema that gradually transitions from the institutional to the international. Social Sciences and Humanities in Latin America have joined this trend, however, their international collaboration has been oriented toward an asymmetric schema in terms of inclusion: only one sector of countries has joined, while another significant group remains isolated; participation: interactions are concentrated by countries with more written science; and integration: it tends to a north-south type of collaboration. The analysis of Latin American international scientific dialogue considers the period of 2005-2015 and it is used redalyc.org database for its representation in the disciplinary and regional, starting from a universe of 10,332 interactions among researchers in the region. It is concluded that these trends of international collaboration are emerging as effects of the current system of communication and evaluation of science.

              Researchers’ Individual Publication Rate Has Not Increased in a Century

              Debates over the pros and cons of a “publish or perish” philosophy have inflamed academia for at least half a century. Growing concerns, in particular, are expressed for policies that reward “quantity” at the expense of “quality,” because these might prompt scientists to unduly multiply their publications by fractioning (“salami slicing”), duplicating, rushing, simplifying, or even fabricating their results. To assess the reasonableness of these concerns, we analyzed publication patterns of over 40,000 researchers that, between the years 1900 and 2013, have published two or more papers within 15 years, in any of the disciplines covered by the Web of Science. The total number of papers published by researchers during their early career period (first fifteen years) has increased in recent decades, but so has their average number of co-authors. If we take the latter factor into account, by measuring productivity fractionally or by only counting papers published as first author, we observe no increase in productivity throughout the century. Even after the 1980s, adjusted productivity has not increased for most disciplines and countries. These results are robust to methodological choices and are actually conservative with respect to the hypothesis that publication rates are growing. Therefore, the widespread belief that pressures to publish are causing the scientific literature to be flooded with salami-sliced, trivial, incomplete, duplicated, plagiarized and false results is likely to be incorrect or at least exaggerated.
