    AnnotationThe entire spectrum of recent scientific research is too complex to be fully and qualitatively understood and assessed by any one person, hence, scientometry may have its place, provided it be applied with common sense, being constantly aware of its many limits. However, scientometry, when applied as the sole basis for evaluating performance and funding of research institutions, is our open admission that we are unable to recognize an excellent scientist even if he is working nearby.
