Abstract. Reflections are presented on the logic of the scoring system of scientific output used as an instrument of the national minimum requirements for acquiring and validating a scientific degree or academic position.
On one hand, problems related to logical discrepancies in the scoring system are examined, and on the other hand, the contradictions in which it enters as a measuring instrument of the achieved level of scientific development are considered from the point of view of the requirements of the theory of measurement.
