To improve the understanding of the processes of technology transfer between university-business and communities, is one of the concerns of the university academy of any nation, for its selfevaluation, appointed to redirect their impacts, being the bibliometric analysis (Scientometrics) one of the assessment tools. The aim of this study was to perform a bibliometric analysis of the scientific literature published in the Journal of the Faculty of Veterinary Science of the Central University of Venezuela (UCV- FCV) during the period 2002- 2011. Research published in each journal during that time was considered, applying the consumer bibliometric indicators (density, half-life, Price index, isolation index, document typology, and language capacity). The review articles, letters to the editor, reflections, editorials, and informative notes, were not included in the scientific study. A total of 2651 bibliographic references in 106 scientific articles were evaluated. The results of the investigation showed a density close to 25 references/article, with an average half-life of 10 years. The Price index exceeded 24% and the isolation index was approximately 16%. More than 66% of the documents listed as bibliographic references were scientific journals written in English. It is recommended that the age of the consulted literature be revised, due to the high risk of using outdated or superseded information.
