Aim: The aim of this study was to analyze semantically medical abstracts from the Republic of Macedonia indexed in the PubMed database with GoPubMed.Material and Methods: The analysis was performed with GoPubMed on March 18, 2013 in order to identify indexed papers affiliated with the country Macedonia in the PubMed database. A total number of 1469 abstracts were identified for analysis.Results: Macedonian medical scientists published papers in a total of 400 different journals which have been indexed in PubMed database. The largest number of published papers was in the domestic journal Prilozi. Top twenty Macedonian authors published 72.4% of the total number of abstracts indexed in PubMed. A significant increase of abstracted papers during the period of 1989-2012 was recorded (from 50 abstracts to 180 abstracts, respectively) and a significant increase of relative research interest (from 0.00006 to 0.00018, respectively). Top author networks of the Macedonian scientists have shown that the largest group was composed of scientists working in the field of nephrology and related disciplines. Conclusion: Requirements for at least one paper to be published and indexed in PubMed before a candidate approaches to the Philosophy Doctor Degree defence at the Faculty of Medicine, Ss Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje was a trigger for an increased number of publications indexed in PubMed in the last decade. A larger number of Macedonian medical journals should be indexed in PubMed in order to increase the impact of Macedonian medical scientists in the world.
