Background and Objectives: One of the most common methods for assessing the academic activities in a university is the scientometrics that is performed by using citation databases. The present study examined the amount of scientific publications and the co-authorship of the researchers of Hamadan University of Medical Sciences based on scientific articles indexed in the Scopus citation database.
Materials and Methods: This study is a scientometrics research. The statistical population includes the total scientific output of faculty members of Hamadan University of Medical Sciences in the Scopus databases during 2010-2015. The data are collected through a search on the Scopus citation database and the CiteSpace software has been used to drawing a co-authorship map.
Results: Scientific outputs and citations of researchers have grown well in the last five years, but the value of h-index is not in desirable proportions in comparison to the increasing citations. The results of m-index showed that the members who have just begun their academic activity in terms of scientific production have been more active than other members with a history. Compared to other colleges, health and medical schools have the highest number of co-authorship and overall, co-authorship has grown well (Average cooperation coefficient = 0.39) during the years of study.
Conclusions: According to the low amount of participation, we suggest to create a framework for the wider participation between researchers, linking key authors with the other scholars and attracting young researchers.
