Core journal growth rankings; c) Researcher productivity; d) Number of publications based on affiliation / institution; e) Number of publications by country; f) Number of publications based on document type; and h) Number of publications by subject. This study was conducted by searching through the Scopus database (http://www.scopus.com). A search on the Scopus database uses the term or the word Librarian Competency, on January 11, 2021, which is contained in the title, abstract and keywords.
