Abstract:   (10139 Views)
Assessing the variety and quality of the articles presented in the biennial national congresses of physiology and pharmacology is important to investigators in these fields. Analytic assessment of these presentations are of great use to know the stand points of physiology and pharmacology departments in different universities, and also can be informative for policy makers in higher education nation wide. Methods: In this research we have studied the presentations in the 10th to 17th congresses from different point of views such as general and specified scientific fields, and also the quantity of data production from various departments, universities, and cities. The total number of articles presented in the 10th to 17th congresses was 281, 404, 529, 390, 723, 693, 719, and 687 respectively. Results: This study shows that the city Tehran is a center for productive universities. In addition, the majority of the studies have been systemic and molecular and cellular studies have not still found their expected stand point. Graduate studies seem to be the active generator for research in these fields and need more attention from policy makers. Overall there has been a steady quantitative growth in these presentations. Conclusion: Overall the research activity of Iranian physiologist and pharmacologists could be positively graded but needs great attention to remove the weak points and improve the strong ones.
