A sample of 3746 papers has been obtained from 168 online retrospective searches of Medline. Each paper has been bibliometrically analysed by the following indicators: language in which it was written; existence of an English abstract; abstract type with respect to number of words; depth of indexing; and inclusion of the author's address. Special emphasis has been put on scientific production in Slavonic countries and the information value of these papers in Mediine. A comparative study has been made of works originally written in English.
