 The number of papers published in peer review journals shows a regular increase in the five years period. From 0.9 papers/IM in 2008 to a value of 1.4 papers/IM . This is a very positive indicator showing a trend for an incremental amount of scientific work developed and effectively recognized by the scientific community.
