Translator’s remarks. (Czech) Zbl 0879.01055
The author presents some comments and ideas which he got when he translated the paper The “indexed” theorem by A. Octavio [Pokroky Mat. Fyz. Astron. 42, No. 3, 144-148 (1997; translated from Math. Intell. 18, No. 4, 9-11 (1996)]. He presents some further arguments to show that the Science Citation Index has a rather doubtful value for mathematics. The appended tables are of particular interest because they contain lists of journals on mathematics and on applied mathematics which are taken into considerations in the SCI, inclusive the corresponding impact factors.
