This study aims at comparing the research output of Czech institutions on an international level. The authors (Štěpán Jurajda, Stanislav Kozubek, Daniel Münich and Samuel Škoda) have compared the publication output of entire scientific fields in the Czech Republic to the same fields in other countries, basing the comparison on artcles published in the years 2010-2014 and included in the Web of Science (WoS) database.

The comparison included eleven small and medium-sized countries, only one of which has English as its official language: five European countries belonging to the so-called former Soviet-bloc, four Western European countries, and two non-European countries.

Unlike most similar international bibliometric comparisons, this study indicates both the overall quantity of scientific publications included in the WoS and its quality distribution. This has allowed us to compare the general status of Czech scientific fields, both as to their publication output and quality. We have also attempted to describe the dynamic development of the international status of Czech scientific fields over time.
