Bibliometric studies have become an essential tool of support the management of scientific policy of different countries, their bibliometric indicators form part of the evaluation process of scientific activity implemented by organizations of Science and Technology, as Colciencias, in the case Colombian.

Materials and Methods.

The information of articles analyzed, was obtained of the GrupLAC (platform Red-ScienTI of Colciencias), for research groups belonging area of biology, linked to Uptc. Present results of the production of the groups, and circulation and impact of publications, as well as the collaborations visualized through the coauthorship.
