Abstract: The Compare operator of the SCIMAGO platform is used to identify the launch of large-scale measures to stimulate the publication activity at a country level. The study shows that sharp breakpoints in the graphs of the publication activity dynamics identify the periods when these measures are introduced. This hypothesis was tested for the countries for which we had reliable evidence of when they introduced such measures Iran, Turkey and China. It allowed researchers to extend the hypothesis under consideration to study other countries, making it possible to identify when such stimulating measures were introduced in Saudi Arabia and Malaysia. In general, all the leading Islamic countries have been tested to check the validity of this hypothesis.
