Abstract: As collaboration became widespread in academia and educational systems, and the number of authors per article increased, the count of publication is no longer an accurate indicator of scientific output in many cases. In order to overcome this limitation, the study defined and computed a relative count of publications called ‘CP’ (credit-based contribution point), based on the sequence-determinescredit (SDC) method, as a proxy for the output of authors taking into account their level of contribution of each author. Analyses were done on a sample of 410 Vietnamese social scientists whose publications have been indexed in the Scopus database during 2008-2017. Results showed that the average CP of Vietnamese researchers in the field of social sciences and humanities is very low: more than 88% of authors have CP
