Abstract: Approaches to the counting of scientific articles are discussed. Principal attention in the report is paid to fractional counting. It is designated that the method of proportional fractional counting conceptually splits up a scientific result if an article is written by several authors. A combination of proportional fractional counting based on normalization of the affiliations of each article’s author(s), and equal fractional counting based on crossing arrays is suggested. This may have a positive effect, combining the information on an organization’s share of articles and the most valuable collaborations. Participants have pointed that the further research of the raised questions is needed.
