In recent years a number of studies have addressed the topic of the economic crisis of Argentina in 2001, and its repercussions upon the political, social, and institutional systems of the country. However, no studies to date have analyzed the effects of the crisis upon the country ́s scientific system from a scientometric perspective, with an analysis of the resources dedicated to scientific activity as well as the final results in terms of output and impact. The present study attempts to show the effects of the 2001 crisis upon the scientific system by means of a set of scientometric indicators that reflect economic effort, human resources dedicated to research, publications, collaborative relations, and the international visibility of scientific contributions.
