The evaluation of the scientific work through the citation analysis represents one of the methods applied throughout the world and in our country. There are two reference institutions in Serbia (University Library “Svetozar Markovic” in Belgrade and Matica Srpska Library in Novi Sad) which make bibliographies of cited works according to the data bases Science Citation Index and ISI Web of Science (WOS) which are financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia.

Citation is based on citation bases which are issued by the Institute for Scientific Information which is part of the Thomson Reuters in Philadelphia.

Citation is determined at the University Library “Svetozar Markovic” in Belgrade according to the following sources:

  • 1961–1979 Science Citation Index in paper format
  • 1980–1995 Science Citation Index on CD’s
  • 1996–2015 Web of Science over the Academic network

Matica Srpska Library in Novi Sad owned Science Citation Index in paper format from 1945 to 1979.
