>From the intro:
The story of Russian scientometrics is an intriguing one. It tells as much
about the nature of scientometrics and its relationships with science
policy, as about Russian science and science policy in general. In this
presentation I will try to address the main features of Russian and
Ukrainian scientometrics and give a preliminary answer to the question why
socialist scientometrics was a failure.
