Abstract: The main objective of this work is to characterize the bibliometric behavior of the scientific work of Dr. Guillermo Haro (March 21, 1913 – April 26, 1988). Professor Haro’s scientific writings spanned from 1944 to 1988. In this paper, we consider citations made up until February 9, 2009. The methodology used is based on the creation of three databases. The first database is composed of a total of 93 articles with their publication data. The second database contains 710 references cited in those articles, and the third database comprises 830 citations retrieved from the NASA Astrophysics Data System, in addition to the archive that contains the complete text of the articles for their thematic analysis. For the interpretation of these data, several indicators and mathematical models were used which give us both the characteristics of the scientific communication of this author over the course of 44 years as well as the characteristics of the citations received.
