Abstract Introduction: Bibliometrics as a method of annual evaluation of research performance in Iranian Universities of Medical Sciences involves determination of scientific activities of faculty members. A wide range of scientific performances are evaluated in this way and determination of number of publications is an important indicator of this evaluation. Objective: Determination of number of article published by Guilan University of Medical Sciences (GUMS) faculty members Materials and Methods: Using a descriptive design based on biblometrics methods, four eminent scientific databases including Scientific Information Database (SID), Iranmedex, Web of Knowledge (WOK) and Scopus has been searched and the number of articles published by GUMS faculty members has been determined. Results: Data obtained in this research indicates the number of Persian and Latin articles published by GUMS faculty members shows a rapid increase in recent five years as the number of Latin articles increased from 9 in 2003 to 41 in 2008. Of 879 articles published by GUMS members in this period, the medical faculty members contributed the highest percentage (77.47%), with Internal group as rank one with 69 articles. Conclusion: The current trend of article publication by GUMS members is favorably increasing, although this tendency has no equality in all faculties. Conducting more researches to discover the potential causes of this situation and providing sophisticated resolutions seems be necessary.
