Introduction: One of the scientific members of faculties’ gradation criteria is evaluation of their publications’ quantity and quality. H-index, G-index, and m parameter are used recently. This paper was aimed to assessment faculties’ publications’ quantity and quality, and citation ranking of IUMS’ faculties by using those indices.

 Methods: This is a descriptive- applied study, used checklist, and direct observation as data collecting tools. Research population are 681 IUMS’ faculties publications indexed in Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar and Iranian Science Citation Index (ISCI) up to the end of 2008. The number of professors, associate professors, assistant professors, and lecturers were 32, 95, 284, and 225, respectively. The great number of studied subjects belongs to Medicine faculty. 

Results: Totally, research population has been published 4276 papers, with 8291 citations for these papers. More than half of faculties (56%) has been gained h=0. The two highest h-index and g-index belong to Medicine Faculty’s Nephrology Professor (h-index=16 g-index=16) and Microbiology professor (h-index=13 g-index=16) and no one did gain h- index extent prognosticated by its presenter.

Discussion: By consideration of international h-index and g- index and M parameter obtained in medicine and biology, IUMS’ faculties are really poor in those indices, and even their publication are very low. National and international scientific cooperation, interaction with other researchers, publications’ language, and international accessibility are suggested to improve h-index and supplementary indices.
