The status of any university in the world is determined by several indicators, among which the most important are the ones related to the number and forcefulness of the scientific publications of its employees, presence of rated scientific publications. In Ukraine, it is obligatorily taken into account when the university gives or confirms its status as national, when defining the amount of state financing, when giving the grants, etc. That’s why recently the leading university of the country – Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv – performs the complex of measures concerning the expansion of the work in the mentioned direction. To this end, a year ago there began the cooperation with the company that for a long time deals professionally with scientific journals publishing – with LLC CPC “Business Perspectives”.

Liudmyla Ostapenko, Ph.D., the "Business Perspectives" company CEO, and Serhiy Kozmenko, Professor, the co-founder of "Business Perspectives" took part in the conference. Serhiy Kozmenko contributed to the conference with a lecture on "The phenomenon and methodology of the monopolists of scientometrics (evidence from Scopus and Web of Science Core Collection)".

Are these bases methodologically impeccable, the procedures are transparent, and their content is qualitative?
