The formal characteristics of the publication activity of Russian researchers are analyzed. The sources of information are Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Social Science Citation Index (SSCI), Arts and Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI), and Journal Citation Reports (JCR) for 1993–2017. The following information was considered: the annual number of publications originating in Russia, the overall number of publications; the share of Russian publications in each field of science in the world array of publications; the rank of Russia based on the number of publications in each area of research; the share of Russia’s publications in a particular area of research in the total number of Russian publications; and the average and average weighted impact factor for a given set of journals.
