Currently, the most important indicators of science production are the number of articles indexed in databases. In the present research, the scientific output of the work of researchers at Birjand University of medical sciences, manifested in the "Web of Science" database were taken into consideration by means of scientometrics indicators. Materials and Methods: This work is a descriptive- applied study. The population was the scientific output of BUMS' researchers which was indexed in Web of Science during 2000-2011. For data analysis descriptive statistics and scientometrics methods were used. Results: The study population included 81 articles that had been cited 163 times in total. Maximum number of records (57) covered original articles and the topic of most papers (11%) was toxicology. Maximum number of scientific papers (22.2 percent) were indexed at this database in 2009 and the highest number of citations to all papers (46.6) referred to the year 2011.Most international collaboration of the researchers was with authors from The United States (8.4 percent), and in the national level, it was with Mashhad University of Medical Sciences (27%).
