Bibliometric assessment of national library information journals
Findings of the bibliometric analysis of national library and information journals are highlighted. The range of publications for comparative analysis is reviewed. The key bibliometric indicators for journals assessment are defined; the choice of the data source, namely RSCI database is substantiated. Among the indicators selected for analysis are: number of publications and citations, two-year impact factor, 5-year impact factor, five-year self-citation coefficient, 5-year Herfindahl index - by citation journals and by author’s institutions. On the basis of average factors, the citation dynamics for 2013 - 2015 is determined. Other factors of journals’ authority are also discussed: Inclusion into the HAC (Highest Attestation Commission), world abstract databases and Web of Science and Scopus citation systems.

Evaluation of scientific work in the library and information field
The author highlights the criteria for assessing library scientist's impact by the number of the publications using citation indices and Hirsch factor. The functions, advantages and drawbacks of citation indices are discussed, as well as the factors to affect Hirsch index. The author examines the credibility of the Russian Science Citation Index data and the quality of journal publications in the HAC list. Standards of originality in the Antiplagiat system and the quality of scientific publications in the library science, bibliography and bibliology are discussed. Some approaches toward scientific work evaluation in the modern library and information science are proposed. The author argues that the quantitative indicators should be combined with the expert assessment.

Could we measure science outcome in papers and printed symbols? (Commenting on Tatyana Zakharchuk’s article)
The author analyzes why science outcomes in the library and information sector is assessed through quantitative factors (number of publications and their total volume) rather than by the actual contribution to the science; why in some cases it is enough for some publications to be published and, which is most importantly, be included into the Russian Science Citation Index though they are far from being scientific. The author argues that we lack assessment tools to evaluate achievements in science, and it’s almost impossible to publish a paper in foreign periodicals; the criteria to classify a work as a scientific or research paper are lacking, too.

Opportunities for Academic and Research Libraries and Wikipedia
Wikipedia supplements library resources with timely, useful information; acts as a tool for librarians answering reference questions; provides a pathway to primary and secondary sources and citations. Wikipedia helps library clients perform research; and provides a vital platform for recording local knowledge. Public libraries can expose both their staff and patrons to more complex and sophisticated strategies for dealing with the changing digital landscape. Wikipedia has the potential to point clients to libraries, where resources in their areas of interest can be found. Wikipedia-library engagement connects Wikipedia with the important role libraries play in bridging inequalities in access to information. Active collaborations between Wikipedia editors and academic and research libraries to advance the free flow of information which supporting sustainable development around the world. These collaborative opportunities offer a range of outcomes that could benefit academic and research libraries including crowdsourcing, community engagement, rapid models for online publishing, student writing assignments, etc. For the Russian National Public Library for Science and Technology both projects are equally of interest.
