    abstract = {Nowadays, with computer-supported analysis of databases, constructing bibliometric or scientometric indicators may be considered easy. The problem is more to verify the accuracy of the global analysis, including the sampling of data. The global coherence of an analysis depends on the adequacy of all the steps. Using on-line databases, an experiment was designed to demonstrate this. Keeping the same protocol for data collection, the same indicators are used over the various samples. The results from three separate databases are profoundly different. Aujourd'hui, avec l'analyse automatique des bases de donn\'ees, la construction d'indicateurs bibliom\'etriques ou scientom\'etriques est facilit\'ee. Le probl\`eme est plus de v\'erifier l'exactitude de l'analyse globale, y compris l'\'echantillonnage des donn\'ees. La coh\'erence globale de l'analyse d\'epend de la pertinence de tous les maillons de la cha\^ine. En utilisant des bases de donn\'ees en ligne, une exp\'erience a \'et\'e conduite : les m\^emes indicateurs ont \'et\'e utilis\'es sur diff\'erents \'echantillons. Les r\'esultats obtenus sont profond\'ement diff\'erentes.},
