The article deals with the publication activity as a result of positive dynamics of scientometric indicators used to assess national scientific potential. The international and national ratings of the publication activity, in which Ukrainian universities are involved, are presented and analyzed, as well as the publication activity of the leading universities of the country is studied with the help of some analytical and search tools of the scientific platform Web of Science. The dynamics of inclusion of Ukrainian higher education institutions in SCImago Institutional Ranking has been monitored and their most significant achievements have been determined by major groups of rating indicators – “Innovation”, “Social Impact” and “Research”. Identity of SCImago rating and all-Ukrainian rating organised by the popular thematic resource rating has been demonstrated for Ukrainian universities. The methodology and principles of CWTS Leiden Ranking and National Taiwan University Ranking, which are based on Web of Science data, have been reviewed. With input from the Essential Science Indicators (ESI) Web of Science tool the publication activity of Ukrainian scientific organizations has been identified in general, and by means of “Result Analysis” tools the 2019 scientific periodicals have been identified where the researchers from four largest educational institutions in our country were published. It is concluded that among Ukrainian scientists, the trend towards increasing the total number of publications in editions with a low level of scientific influence and citation, as well as with their general misunderstanding of the importance of scientific and publication collaborations with researchers from foreign universities is still prevailing. Suggestions have been formulated to increase publication activity and to represent better the university's scientific results in international citation indices which involve creating permanent consulting groups and courses on using searching engines of Scopus and Web of Science platforms in university libraries that will help academics get acquainted with relevant scientific information and plan directions of their further researches.
