N2 - We consider the possibility of using bibliographic as well as reference data for research in the
history of mathematics during the formation of the mathematical scientific community in
Europe at the second half of the XIX-the first half of the XX centuries. Considering an example
of the mathematical scientific community in Portugal, which was still being formed at that
time, we explore participation and citing of Portuguese researchers in different bibliographic
European projects. We note that bibliographic data can be interpreted in the broader context
of the history of Europe as a whole: the link between this local process in the history of
mathematical thought and the European historical process can be easily seen in the changing
number of publications produced by the mathematical scientific community in Portugal over
different time periods. We conclude that the evolution dynamics of international bibliography
of the mathematical scientific communities in different countries can be used as a research
methodology to understand the social history of mathematics.
