Abstract

Introduction. The article is devoted to substantiating the choice of full-text databases of scientific journals for national subscription and, accordingly, companies providing access to such databases. The necessity of automating the selection of such databases and companies is substantiated. Previous studies on this topic have not been conducted.

Materials and Methods. The article analyzes the activity of Kazakhstani scientists in three priority areas of scientific research for Kazakhstan: nanotechnology, regenerative medicine and robotics. The studies were conducted on arrays of articles and using the standard tools and functionality of Scopus and Web of Science Core Collection, the global citation indices.

Results. The authors report the data on the Kazakhstan publication activity in the three priority areas: 68 and 60 articles of Kazakhstan researchers were analyzed, respectively, in Scopus and Web of Science. Nazarbaev University leads the publication rating in three priority areas with 32 publications indexed in Scopus. The international databases recommended for the national subscription and the companies, suppliers of the databases were identified. A new approach to justifying the choice of the repertoire of scientific journal databases for a national subscription is proposed and justified.

Discussion and Conclusion. In order to provide full-fledged informational support for research and stimulate publication activity in such priority areas for Kazakhstan as nanotechnology, regenerative medicine and robotics, it is proposed to include in the national subscription the databases of scientific journals provided by IEEE, Springer and Wiley. In order to obtain search results by such criteria as publishers/aggregators, it is proposed to develop the tools for generating statistical reporting in the Web of Science and Scopus databases. It is suggested to automate the process of determining the popularity of the databases of scientific journals and their providers with the goal of national subscription to the full-text databases they supply.
