Abstract

Background and purpose: Scientific production is considered as an important indicator of scientific activities in each country. This issue has received increasing interest by authorities in both national and international levels. Many decisions to enhance the quality of researches are made based on scientific productions. The purpose of this research was a quantitative evaluation of scholars� scientific production in Iran in the fields of Immunology and Microbiology indexed in Scopus Database (2000-2012). Material and methods: This descriptive study was performed based on scientometric approach. Scopus database was searched for words including Iran (as Affiliation), Immunology and Microbiology (subject area) and 2000-2012(coverage years). Documents and articles of Iranian scholars in studied areas were then analyzed. Microsft Excel and NodeXL software were used for data analysis Results: This study showed that 2.7 of scientific productions of scholars in Iran indexed in Scopus database were in immunology and microbiology during 200-2012. Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Islamic Azad University, and Tehran University are known as the most active scientific production centers in Iran. Most of the articles were in English language, and major authors and journals in immunology and microbiology were recognized. Conclusion: Scientific productions of researchers in immunology and microbiology who are affiliated with Iranian universities indicate the importance of this subject area. Furthermore, scientific collaborations with researchers in other countries could play a major role in enhancing the level of knowledge of our researchers.
