Conceptual challenges of science citation index creating in Azerbaijan are considered. Development principals of database of scientific publications and analytical-information system based on it are explained. It is demonstrated that, requirements set for scientific journals and publications, unified register of scientific publications, development of scientometric evaluation mechanisms are important challenges set forth. Realization of the system will support evaluation process of scientific activity and science management. (pp. 7-13)

Keywords: science citation index, impact factor, e-science, evaluation of scientific activity, requirements to scientific publications.
