Philosophical Journal in the Mirror of Statistics: 2009–2017
In this paper I present the results of the quantitative analysis of 2009—2017 archives of “Philosophical Thought” — the leading Ukrainian academic journal in the area of philosophy. This analysis was carried out with 32 indicators which characterize demographic, geospatial and academic structure of the journal’s authors, its contents and the effectiveness of distribution of its materials among the target readership. The results of the analysis demonstrate development trends of the journal; allow comparing them with the previous period data and make it possible to draw conclusions concerning the effectiveness of the refinement process which lasted throughout the period under review.
