ROMO FERNANDEZ, Luz María; GUERRERO BOTE, Vicente P.  and  MOYA ANEGON, Félix. Analysis of the Spanish scientific production in Renewable Energy, Sustainability and the Environment (Scopus, 2003-2009) in the global context. Investig. bibl [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.60, pp.125-151. ISSN 2448-8321.

Using the Scopus database for the period 2003-2009, this paper analyzes the scientific production in the area of Renewable Energy, Sustainability and Environment in Spain. Initially, researchers compare Spain's scientific production and impact against that of the leading developed countries. This comparison is followed by an examination of the contributions of Spanish researchers and the journals in which they publish, showing that Spain's scientific output rank advanced significantly from fifteenth to the sixth in the world. Moreover, the impact of Spain's research increased during this period. The study found CIEMAT and UPM are among Spain's leading producers of scientific research, while the University of Zaragoza and CSIC are highly ranked in both production and impact.

Keywords : Renewable Energy; Sustainability and the Environment; Spain; Scientific Production; Research Institutions.
