SPILKI, Fernando Rosado. Profile of the Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico (CNPq) productivity fellows in the area of Veterinary Medicine. Pesq. Vet. Bras. [online]. 2013, vol.33, n.2, pp.205-213. ISSN 0100-736X.

In this study, data regarding the population of productivity fellows from the Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico (CNPq), Committee of Veterinary Medicine, were evaluated by calculation of scientometrical indexes as an effort to examine the profile of researchers from different levels on these parameters. Other variables, such as the place of doctorate studies, gender, institution, and advisory of human resources were also recorded and evaluated. There is a clear predominance of men (72.37%), which are mostly settled in the South and Southeast. Most of the recipients were awarded his doctorate in Brazil. From the analyzed parameters, advisory of human resources is very high at all levels; among the scientometric variables, the citations indexes and h-index are decreasing from the highest level (PQ-1A) to level 2, yet the intragroup variation is very high for these and other derivatives of the H-index. A modification of the h-index, the AWCR index, in which the calculation takes into account the age of articles published and cited, seems more appropriate to stratify the scholarship of fellows. Studies like these could be repeated in the medium term in order to improve the ranking formulas of scholars.
