Background and Objective: One of the most common ways of evaluating scientific researchers, and along with it the evaluation of the universities, is the use of scientometric citation databases methods. This quantitative and qualitative study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of scientific researchers in the Web of Science (WOS) database during a ten-year period from 2002 to 2011.

Materials and Methods: This descriptive study was conducted using scientometric methods. Sampling in this study was a census method and for data collection Web of Science databases were used. For articles published in the name of Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences (RUMS) the database WOS was searched over a ten-year period . SPSS version 16 statistical tests were used for statistical analysis.

Results: Total number of scientific papers published in the ten-year period examined in this study was 200. The most scientific papers produced by the faculty of RUMS in the WOS database consisted of the original articles and documents published in 2011 accounted for most of the data. Maximum number of citations to the articles (93 references) was related to the year 2003.

Conclusion: RUMS in scientific database of WOS in increasng, but considering the number of the faculty members the scientific publication rate is not acceptable. Policies must be adopted to train the teaching faculties of the university to engage in research in their own fields.
