Abstract: The international reputation of scientific journals as a mean of communication may be tested in different ways (see ZITT & BASSECOULARD 1998), but the most significant calculations are based on citation analysis of included articles. This is an obvious record of the truly world-wide circulation of the journal, coupled with the proven utility of published results (GARFIELD 1990), i.e., successes in the increasing ‘competition for attention’ in modern science (FRANCK 1999). The most comprehensive and reliable source of such data is the system of indexation of science and technology journals created by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) in Philadelphia. In principle, to find the position of a journal in the ISI ranking it is enough to consult the annually published statistical database Journal Citation Reports - 1999 Science Edition (JCR), where bibliometric characters are presented for the 5550 source ‘master’ journals (see the ISI Homepage Acta Geologica Polonica (AGP) has not been included in the coverage by the online Science Citation Index (SCI) Expanded. Consequently, AGP is not rated by ISI. [fragm. wstępu]
