Abstract
The contribution deals with the problematic of quality development of research activity in the form of publication output in the index reputable databases. Various evaluation processes and evaluation criteria determine significantly the impact of these results on the evaluation of a faculty as a complex unit. It is important to set up parallel evaluation processes, to eliminate differences in criteria and to continuously create motivation factors to achieve top-level and internationally accredited quality in publication activity. Therefore these results are distinguished for faculty classification into the highest category in the network of universities in the accreditation process of universities in the Slovak Republic. The evaluation process includes on-going evaluation of journal quality (proceedings and others), not only before their indexing in a database, but also during their classification. Research standards are always followed. Contributions and journals indexed in these databases are in the best categories of all types of the faculty evaluation. The same rules are valid also for feedback. Information management of the academic library has a significant proportion on evidence of publication activity and feedback. It is because the evidence of publication activity and feedback are an observed parameter of university activity.
