Bibliometric study of the megazine Gaceta Médica Estudiantil

Introduction: gscientific research constitutes one of the fundamental pillars in the advancement of
Medicine, in such a way that from the Undergraduate level it is necessary to implement research chairs
and different favorable mechanisms towards the collective construction of knowledge. Bibliometrics
statistically and quantitatively analyzes publications within a specific research field. Objective: to
characterize the scientific production of the Gaceta Médica Estudiantil magazine between the year
2020 and the first issue of 2023. Method: a bibliometric study was carried out. The universe was made
up of 76 published scientific articles. The sampling technique was not used. The variables analyzed
were: year of publication, type and topic of the article, career in medical sciences, origin of the
author, number of authors, readings, downloads, and bibliographic references. Descriptive statistics,
power of attraction, degree of collaboration and the Price index were applied. Results: the year 2020
presented the highest number of articles published 31 (40.78%) and the highest collaboration rate.
The original articles predominated 38 (50%). Articles with 5 authors stood out. The Medicine career
predominated with 56 articles (73, 68%). The Guantanamo University of Medical Sciences stood out
with the largest number of authors (105 authors, 51.22%). 233 keywords, 57 structured abstracts and
1078 bibliographical references were used. Conclusions: the importance of the bibliometric study lies
in identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the Gaceta Médica Estudiantil journal, always with
a constructive approach to increase its visibility and meet international quality the
medical career is predominantly null.sciences in Cuba.

Current state of research on testicular microlithiasis: A bibliometric analysis of the last five years’ scientific literature.


Introduction: TM presents an incidence up to 2% in the pediatric population, a higher incidence is also presented in patients with underlying pathologies such as Klinefelter Syndrome and Down Syndrome. Its presence is associated with other tumor pathologies that affect patients’ life quality. Methods: a bibliometric analysis was carried out using the available information in 3 databases to evaluate the current state of research on testicular microlithiasis worldwide. ScienceDirect, Scopus and PubMed were reviewed, using the terms "testicular microlithiasis" and "child", combined with Boolean operators, in articles published from 2018 until 2022. Results: 131 articles related to testicular microlithiasis had been published in the ScienceDirect (n=79), Scopus (n=35) and PubMed (n=17) databases in the last five years. United States, Turkey and China were the countries that achieved most of the publications about TM. The journals with the highest number of publications in ScienceDirect were Journal of Pediatric Urology, Journal of Pediatric Surgery, and Surgical Pathology. The most divulged type of publication in ScienceDirect are book chapters, while in PubMed and Scopus are original articles. Conclusions: research on TM in Latin America has been scarce and that at a global level it is not very significant in terms of the number of studies that are carried out and are published in indexed journals in despite of the high percentage of this finding in routine testicular ultrasounds in the pediatric population (10%) and its association with both benign and malignant pathologies that affect the life and prognosis of patients.
