Results of research on Social Sciences and Humanities are published in a wide variety of documents types and have a more restricted scope than those derived from research in Natural and Experimental Sciences. Therefore, building up bibliometric indicators, useful for the analysis and evaluation of that type of research as well as for establishing comparative studies at the international level, becomes a hard task. Our study constitutes one of the first attempts to explore the research carried out on Social Sciences and Humanities in Argetina during a ten-year period (1990-2000). The indicators employed, based on counting publications covered by the Social Sciences Citation Index and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index databases, reveal publication habits, the most commonly used journals and the most productive disciplines of Argentinian researchers.
