This research work made a study of scientific citations, with the aim of identifying aspects that may influence the citations of a higher educational institution. We analyzed 219 records of publications of the National University of Chimborazo and 10304 records of manuscripts from Ecuador. This work had a qualitative approach and a systemic design. As a result, it was found that the impact of scientific publications is reflected by the number of citations that have the documents published by the higher education institutions; in this sense, publications with larger citations are not related to the number of authors or volume of the published magazine, but they are supported by a quality research and correspond mostly to applied sciences.
