Abstract: The publication production of clay minerals is analysed on the basis of the works registered in the SCI database in 1980–2001. A continuous increase of the annual number of works in this period is registered while the proportion of the number of works devoted to individual clay minerals remains almost unchanged throughout the whole period. The subject of publication production is substantially dependent on the type of mineral followed; material research oriented papers, catalysis and organo/clay interactions research prevail among the papers with a chemical character. The average citation response to the set of analysed papers is about 10–15 citations/paper and uncited papers represent 9–35 % of the total number of papers. The most cited papers (in individual years) are cited on average 109-times annually and half-time of the citations count per paper exceeds 20 years. The average time between appearing and the greatest citation response can be estimated at 5 years.

Keywords: citation analysis, publication production, clay minerals
