    ABSTRACT: The immediate expression of the scientific activity is very well reflected through the serial journals, due to the fact that they are the main means of information that scientists have chosen to communicate to their peers and society as a whole the advances and recent contributions of research that is being done. Thus explaining in this manner the reason why bibliometric studies are of great utility to highlight the evolution of the scientific research, also, this allows scientists, institutions and, editors of scientific journals to be aware of a series of indicators to analyze science productivity from different angles. In this study, the editorial productivity of the National Institute of Psychiatry Ramon de la Fuente (NIPRF), and its journal Salud Mental included in two indexes of the ISI Web of Science: 1) The Social Science Citation Index (SSCI), 2) The Science Citation Index (SCI) and The Journal Citation Reports (JCR), by Thompson Scientific, between the years 1995 -2006. The objective of the study is to make public the editorial productivity of the institution, research staff and their journal Salud Mental, according to the mentioned information sources. These databases were selected for this study because of the prestige that Thompson Scientific has not only in the scientific community, but also, in the information media, due to its rigorous methods to select the journals in order to maintain updated journal titles that are included in their indexes. This study shows the productivity of different countries of the world in the SSCI in the period analyzed to place Mexico in the international context. Then, it is shown all the productivity of Mexico in the SSCI by author, subject, institution, publication, type of document and language, with the purpose of knowing the position of productivity of the NIPRF in the national context. After this, all the productivity of the NIPRF contained in the SCI is presented with the total productivity of the institute in both indexes. Afterwards, a chart is shown of the productivity of the authors belonging to the institute that appear in both indexes, showing the number of articles as single authors and as first authors, as well as identifying the type of documents published. The study follows with a series of data of the productivity of three Mexican journals indexed in the SSCI related to subjects such as psychology and psychiatry, they are: Salud Pública de Mexico, Salud Mental and, Revista Mexicana de Psicologia, with the purpose of identifying the institutions journal Salud Mental in the national and international context. The impact factor of the three Mexican journals was obtained from the journal Citation Reports Edition. All the productivity of the three journals was analyzed by author, institution, type of document and language. The Mexican scientific productivity in social sciences, according to the SSCI, is very low compared with the other countries that were analyzed; in the cose of Latin America, only Brazil exceeds Mexico in editorial production in this subject. According to the SSCI, the recurrent subjects in the editorial production in the social sciences are related with subjects such as psychology and psychiatry and the authors that stand out in this study are from the NIPRF. It is worth pointing out the fact that most of the editorial production of Mexico in this field according to the SSCI is generated in public institutions, first of all, the National Autonomous University of Mexico followed by the National Institute of Psychiatry Ramon de la Fuente.
