Introduction: For new scientific field to achieve more coherent position, it needs scientometric analysis more than other fields. This study aims to use citation analysis and scientific mapping of Iranian researchers' publications in stem cell indexed in science citation database up to 2015

Methods: This is an applied descriptive study using scientific mapping method. The population of this study is all types of Iranian researchers' publications in stem cell (2317 records) indexed in science citation database up to 2015. The data have been collected by observing the science citation index website and transcribing in to plain text in order to analyze it with HistCite software.

Results:The results showed that Soleimani with 232 records (10 percent) achieved the first place in author's ranking. In universities ranking Tehran University of medical sciences was the first, which published 566 records (24.5 percent) in the field of stem cell. This university also achieved high global and local citation score among the universities and institutions in Iran. The scientific publication growth procedure of this field increased up to 2014 but it had a little bit decrease from 2014 to 2015. The type of 1762 records (76 percent) of stem cell publication was article. The scientific map of stem cell based on both global and local citation score had two important clusters.

Conclusion: The most important and cited articles on stem cell clusters have focused on the role of this field in treatments and pathogens diagnosis. According to the Tehran University of medical sciences top rank in this field, the scientific cooperation between the scientists and students of this university and the other universities and institutions is improving the scientific level of stem cell in Iran.
