National Bibliometric Instrument is a scientific electronic library which stores, classifies and measures public data regarding scientific publications of researchers from the Republic of Moldova. At the moment this data refers specifically to scientific articles published in national scientific journals of A, B and C categories (especially those found in electronic format), evaluated and accredited according to the requirements approved by the Supreme Council for Science and Technological Development (SCSTD) and the National Council for Accreditation and Attestation (CNAA).

The repository is being progressively updated with new articles and in time aims to become an important database of periodicals, that provides relevant data for evaluation of research results, researchers personal merits and for decision support systems.



Publication of papers in either Russian or English is free-of-charge.
