Abstract: The present paper sumnarizes bi bliometric indicators used for evaluation of publication activity and research progress of research teams in an academic research institute . The main goal of the application of the regularly calculated indicators is to help the researchers in forming an appropriate publication strategy. The Lotka distribution of papers among researchers showed correlation with personal characteristics (position and scientific degree held). The Bradford distribution of papers among journals published by research teams working in different subfields revealed great differences among the subfields. A new indicator (Publication Concentration) is also suggested which yields the percentage of journals used by a research team to publish half of its papers in a given time interval.
