The goal of this work was to show, through a case study involving the Revista Española de Enfermedades Digestivas (REED), the potentialities offered by the SciELO network indicators for the management of scientific journals. SciELO offers indicators (production, collaboration, use) that complement the conventional analysis indices used for written science. In order to illustrate their uses a bibliometric, descriptive study was undertaken of the scientific production published by the above-mentioned journal over the period 2004-2018. In the last 5 years REED received 3,976,685 visits. The second issue of 2007 is the most widely accessed sample to this day. A total of 173 issues, 1,810 citable articles, 2,927 documents, and 47,645 references have been published, with the number of published papers increasing by 268%. Clinical case reports make up the highest number. REED received a total of 3,613 citations, with 60% of self-citation. Of all published documents, 42% originate in Spain and 10.6% abroad. Group authorship predominates over individual authors, with a median and mode of 5. The cooperation index was 5.12. The highest impact factor was 0.492 in 2008. The journals most commonly cited by REED are all foreign publications in the Gastroenterology and Hepatology section of the Science Citation Index.
