ABSTRACT
The analysis of the scientific production of a university is a very complex process and it usually refers to the number of articles published in scientific journals. For most analyses, only a small number of journals is taken into consideration. Usually, there are considered the journals indexed in databases like Science Citation Index (Thompson ISI). However, we consider that for a more complex image of the scientific production of a university, we need to take into consideration several aspects: the development of the scientific production is a fundamental part of the mission of a university; the scientific production represents an integration of knowledge at both tangible and intangible level; at the moment, the evaluation and analysis of the scientific production is made only at the tangible level, the scientific production differs from one domain to another; all the university rankings based on the scientific production are relative.
