The bibliometric analysis of scientific works on medicinal chemistry published over the last ten years is performed. The data obtained from the Web of Science Core Collection citation database suggest a decrease in the number of studies in the European developed countries and the United States, while this number increased in China, India, and the Latin American countries. There is a growing number of open-access articles on medicinal chemistry among which the portion of review papers increases. In Russia, this field is extensively progressing: the publication activity from 2008 to 2017 increased 2.5-fold.
