CARVAJAL TAPIA, Aarón Eduardo  and  CARVAJAL RODRIGUEZ, Eduardo. Bibliometric analysis of student participation in publications of scientific articles in health sciences journals indexed in SciELO Bolivia, period 2010-2016. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2018, vol.41, n.1, pp.31-35. ISSN 1012-2966.

Studies in relation to student participation in indexed journals have been and continue to be studied because of their impact as an indicator of scientific production and effort in a region, considering that many historical milestones in medicine were made by students. Objective: to determine, through a bibliometric analysis, student participation in publications of scientific articles in health sciences journals indexed in SciELO Bolivia from 2010 to 2016. Methods: bibliometric, cross-sectional and descriptive study, based on the records of publications of health sciences journals of biannual periodicity indexed in the database of SciELO Bolivia, including all original articles, review articles, clinical cases, medical images and letters to the editor during the study period. Results: of 471 articles published by the magazines selected, 168 articles corresponded to student participation (35.67%). The journal with the highest participation of students was the Revista Científica Ciencia Médica with 126 publications (75.00%), followed by the Gaceta Médica Boliviana with 34 publications (20.24%), both belonging to the School of Medicine of the Universidad Mayor of San Simón and with less student participation of the Revista Médica La Paz with 8 publications (4.76%). Conclusions: : there is a scarce presence of student scientific participation in Bolivia, with the exception of the Revista Científica Ciencia Médica that gives greater coverage to students with a significant number of publications, followed by the Gaceta Médica Boliviana.
