Abstract The efficiency of published scientific works are measured and examined qualitatively by bibliometric methods. As a significant efficiency measurement tool, citations form one of the parameters of research evaluation methods. By means of research evaluation studies, publication tendencies of specific fields are revealed, comparisons are made between countries, institutions or individuals, and consequently all these results helped the formation of scientific publication policies of countries and institutions. Research evaluation studies also provide us with information on what is worth researching for scientists. This article gives information on the h-index results in order to compare Turkey and other countries with respect to the articles published in citation indexes over the years. In this respect, it has been observed that h-index value of Turkey-addressed publications has increased over the years. Yet, comparisons showed that Turkey still lags behind countries such as Austria, Finland and Denmark. Similar conditions exist in terms of the universities. Turkish universities remain below many other universities worldwide in terms of h-index performance.
