Publication activity is considered as a set of actions, a well thought-out strategy, which involves focusing efforts on access to the rating databases by as many as possible publications and articles of the country, as well as improving their qualitative indicators. National editions that are already part of a scientometric databases or meet their requirements and may qualify for such an entry form a launch pad, a springboard for the inclusion of as many national editions, publications, and scientists as possible to the world’s scientometric databases. The introduction of incentive and monitoring systems for publishing activities is an important factor in attracting the scientific community of the country to the global scientific communication and raising the ratings of national science.
Keywords: publishing activity, publishing strategy, scientific journal, stimulation of publishing activity, scientific rating, scientometric systems, scientific communication.
