Introduction: One of the criteria showing the importance of a research area is the scientific products in that research area. The aim of the current study was to investigate the situation of scientific products on the topic of Patients’ rights indexed in ISI-Web of Science between the years 2000 until 2014.

Methods: The method used was descriptive-cross sectional with a Scientometrics approach. Thus, 347 documents of scientific products indexed in ISI-Web of Science with the topic of patients’ rights were studied using the search engine of this webpage between the years 2000 and March 2014. The collected data were analyzed with descriptive statistics.

Results: The findings showed that the studied 347 documents had been published in six different formats, which 246 documents were of research articles, 73 documents were review articles and the rest were of other formats. Moreover, the countries the USA, England, and Germany had the most number of documents, respectively. Further, the American Journal of Comparative LAW, among journals, and Jansen, N, among researchers, had the most documents in this field. The scientific products experienced an upward trend after 2008.

Conclusion: One of the gaps in knowledge mapping in Iran, is low research activities in the field of patient rights; therefore, that results of this study can contribute to Iranian researchers to get more information about development of this subject area and even recognize top researchers working on the patient rights in order to establish more scientific communication with authors of this area.
