The present study intended to examine the status of scientific production of faculty members in Al-Zahra University (PBUH) to determine the extent to which Al-Zahra University (PBUH) has been successful in scientific-research tasks. Goal: The present study was conducted to investigate the status of scientific production of faculty members in Al-Zahra University over 2005-2009. Method: This research has been done by survey method. The data were collected through checklists and descriptive-analytical statistical methods were used in this study. The research population was 299 faculty members of Al-Zahra University (PBUH); their required information was collected by the university research portfolio, University Jihad Scientific Database, Research Institute Database and Iranian Scientific Document Information, Iranian Magazines Reference (magiran), Simorgh database, Documents Organization and National Library of Iran and Web of Science database of ISI Scientific Information Institute. Findings: Findings show that the highest percentage of papers are related to internal and international journals in 2008, the highest percentage of book production in 2009, the most works presented in internal and international conferences in 2006, research projects in 2005, and guidance of theses in 2006. The scientific production published 471 internal scientific research papers, 266 internal review papers, and 921 papers indexed in international journals. Also, over the years, 192 books have been authored, 23 books translated, 541 works presented in internal and international scientific conferences, 538 research projects, and 1574 cases related to the thesis's guidance. Regarding the language of productions, the study shows that out of 1475 scientific productions, 921 titles are in Persian, 532 titles are in English, and 22 titles are in Arabic. In all faculties, the highest number of productions is related to the guidance of the thesis. Testing the hypotheses shows a significant difference between the variables of degree and academic rank with the scientific output of faculty members. However, there was no significant difference between the gender variable and the scientific output of faculty members. Originality/Value: Since the status of scientific production of Al-Zahra University faculty members has not been studied so far; this study can show the share of Al-Zahra University for the country's scientific production.
