Bottom Line: The number of articles published each year is increasing, with greater participation of authors from different continents and abroad.Clinical medical disciplines are the most common, with the broader spectrum of topics and with a growing number of original articles.Greater support of the wider scientific community is needed for further development of all three of the aforementioned journals.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: A meta-analysis is a statistical and analytical method which combines and synthesizes different independent studies and integrates their results into one common result.

Goal: Analysis of the journals "Medical Archives", "Materia Socio Medica" and "Acta Informatica Medica", which are located in the most eminent indexed databases of the biomedical milieu.

Material and methods: The study has retrospective and descriptive character, and included the period of the calendar year 2014. Study included six editions of all three journals (total of 18 journals).

Results: In this period was published a total of 291 articles (in the "Medical Archives" 110, "Materia Socio Medica" 97, and in "Acta Informatica Medica" 84). The largest number of articles was original articles. Small numbers have been published as professional, review articles and case reports. Clinical events were most common in the first two journals, while in the journal "Acta Informatica Medica" belonged to the field of medical informatics, as part of pre-clinical medical disciplines. Articles are usually required period of fifty to fifty nine days for review. Articles were received from four continents, mostly from Europe. The authors are most often from the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina, then Iran, Kosovo and Macedonia.

Conclusion: The number of articles published each year is increasing, with greater participation of authors from different continents and abroad. Clinical medical disciplines are the most common, with the broader spectrum of topics and with a growing number of original articles. Greater support of the wider scientific community is needed for further development of all three of the aforementioned journals.

Mentions: In the journal “Medical Archives” number of articles published each year is approximately the same (Figure 1) but with statistically significant variations in article types (χ2=15.332; p=0.018), while the number of articles published in the other two journals, year after year tends to increase (Figure 2 and 3) without statistically significant difference in case of Materia Socio Medica (χ2=6.341; p=0.386) and statistically significant difference in case of Acta Informatica Medica (χ2=22,681; p=0,009). In all three journals, original articles, during the period from 2012 to 2014 are the most common.
