Objective. So far, there have been no bibliometric or scientometric studies that make it possible to examine, with quantitative, retrospective, and comprehensive criteria, the scientific output on public health in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Further, the weakness of the existing information systems makes it impossible to examine the relevance, quality, and impact of this scientific output, with a view to evaluating it in terms of social needs and existing patterns of scientific communication. This article presents the results of a bibliographic analysis of the scientific output in the area of public health in Latin America and the Caribbean. The ultimate goal of the analysis is to build a model of scientific communication in this field, to help researchers, managers, and others working in the area of public health to make decisions and to choose actions to take. CONCLUSIONS. This research produced a preliminary model of communications in public health in LAC countries that will hopefully lay the groundwork for further research to develop a model of scientific communication in LAC nations (AU)

The objective of this study was to evaluate research output in relation to undergraduate teaching output of the Faculty of Medical Sciences, Mona Campus, University of the West Indies between 1960 and 1990. The Departmental Reports published by the University of the West Indies were examined using a successive independent sample design with sentinel years at ten-year intervals for the 30-years period under review. The numbers of reported peer-reviewed publications for each department were disaggregated and analysed. Ten of the fourteen departments (10/14, 72 percent) of the Mona Faculty showed a decline in output of peer-reviewed publications of up to 100 percent between 1960 nad 1990 (p < 0.001). The number of academic staff had risen from 41 in 1960 to 143 in 1990 (249 percent) while the publication/staff ratio had fallen from 1.73 in 1960 to 0.48 in 1990 (p < 0.0001). Student/staff ratios had declined significantly over the 30 year period (p < 0.005) as had the graduate/staff ratio (p < 0.01). The Faculty reports indicated that the research-in-progress reported far exceeded the actual publication rate in 1990, whereas the opposite was the case in 1960. There was a statistically significant decline in the number of international conference abstracts published and an increase in the number of regional conference abstracts (p < 0.01) and also a significant decrease in the number of papers presented at conference compared with the number of conferences attended without a paper presented (p < 0.0001). The research publication record and the medical graduate/staff of the Mona Faculty had declined significantly over the 30 years under review. There was also a significant decline in the graduate/staff in the same period. Some of the conventional reasons give for this decline such as staff shortages and increased clinical service or teaching load was discussed.(AU)
