Introduction: Universities as one of the main sources for producing scientific information, play an important role in the development of the society. So, it is necessary to monitor their research activities. This study investigates the situation of producing scientific information by faculty members of Kermanshah University of Medical sciences during 1993-2002. Methods: In this descriptive study, a valid and reliable questionnaire and related documents were used for gathering the data. All full time faculty members (210) were studied through census sampling method. The data was analyzed by descriptive statistics and SPSS software. Results: The total number of scientific products, in all forms, produced by faculty members was 2956. The most produced scientific information was in the form of thesis (42.82%) and the highest percentage of scientific information production was done in 2001 (16.05%). School of Medicine had the highest percentage in scientific information production (82.8%). Articles published in foreign journals (73) as the most creditable products were done by 31 of faculty members (15.2%) and the majority of internal articles produced by 131 of them (64.5%). Only 20% of research projects were presented as scientific articles. Conclusion: Translating and compiling books are performed in a very small number and publishing the results of research projects is very limited also. It is recommended to provide more facilities for publishing scientific articles.
