ABSTRACT:       Articles with 100 citations or more in the scientific
literature and with at least one author with Brazilian affiliation, were 
identified in the Thomson-ISI (Institute for Scientific Information) Web of 
Science bibliometric database covering a 10-year period, from 1994 to 2003 
(see Packer and Meneghini 2006); 248 (0.23%) out of a total of 109,916 
articles with Brazilian affiliation were identified. This study was 
primarily carried out to identify thematic nuclei of excellence in research 
that had major impact in the international literature. Twelve of these 
nuclei in the fields of Biomedicine, Medicine, Biology, Physic, Chemistry 
and Astronomy were considered outstanding and their genesis and development 
were described. The weight of factors such as international collaboration 
and network organization are distinct in these areas and the reasons for 
that are discussed.
