Also the ratio of international scientific collaboration in the field of cancer was 19.3%. Top medical universities were considered as the most important producer center and developed and industrials countries were regarded as the most important co-worker in publishing scientific outputs. Also measure of scientific production in some categories such as bone, uterus and child cancer were not at a good level.
Conclusion: Although Iranian scientific production in the recent years has shown a great growth, articles are not published in very valid and high quality journals. Support of Ministry of Health and Medical Education and their affiliated medical universities to researches, will increase the rate of Iranian scientific researchers’ interaction and collaboration with their co-worker in other countries. Also financially supporting the related researches, providing laboratory facilities and training courses related to scientific writing methods could be useful and effective in improving the quality and quantity of scientific production.
