Abstract

Introduction: The rapid and precipitous increase in the number of scientific journals has outlined the hardship of perpetrating periodic assessments of their scientific production or that of a specific area of knowledge. Scientific production is directly related to scientific activity.
Objective: Describe the production on fractures in the Cuban Journal of Orthopedics and Traumatology.
Methods: A metric, descriptive and cross-sectional analysis of the articles published on fractures in the Cuban Journal of Orthopedics and Traumatology (RCOT) was carried out from from 2013 to 2022.
Results: A total of 37 articles were collected; 19 (51.4%) original articles, 12 (32.4%) case presentations, 4 (10.8%) bibliographic reviews, 1 (2.7%) special article and 1 (2.7%) letter to the editor. The year with the highest scientific production was 2023 (n=19; 51.4%), in the period 2015-2019 no scientific contributions were reported. The total originality rate is 51.4%, with 2013 being the year with the highest rate with 100%, although together with 2014 they represent the most unproductive years within the productive ones, 2014 has an originality rate of 0%.
Conclusions: The production on fractures in the RCOT had a notable representation in the period 2020-2021 and showed a tendency to progress in this regard; but work still needs to be done in order to endorse optimal visibility of the contents on this topic, as well as a greater citation of these, to which the publication in English and the persuasion of collaborators of other nationalities could greatly contribute.
