Scientific publications are currently the criteria for assessing the qualification of employees, the innovative potential and research activities of the University as a whole. First of all, publication activity in scientific journals indexed in Web of Science and Scopus databases is taken into account. 130 journal articles published by lecturers of the Chuvash State University medical faculty during the period from 2014 to 2018 were analyzed. On average, about 30 articles were published in high–ranking journals, more than 90% – in the Russian-language periodicals. Of these, 50% (65) were devoted to morphological studies (22), 19% – to therapy (18), gerontology (15) and ophthalmology (10; the remaining publications are distributed among 17 specializations. The article’s attractiveness for its viewing and citing depended on the semantic capacity (the length) of the title (negative correlation). The number of views was reflected by the article’s citation rate, the number of authors influenced its volume (positive correlations).
