AbstractResearch is one of the most important substructures of the development of a country. In order to develop medical ethics in community, recognition process and description of current situation can provide the possibility of pathology and finding the existence strengths and weakness points for planning and implementing the scientific map of medical ethics in the country. This study considered the papers status in medical ethic and medical sciences universities publications in Iran and reviews a summary of researches in these centers in 1390. We evaluated the titles of the published articles through 290 formal journals to Persian and Latin in medical universities and research centers. The results were compared with the prioritization of Iran medical ethic strategic plan and a survey which was already obtained from medical ethic researchers. 52 journals of 290 general medical and specific medical ethics journals, have presented 174 medical ethics papers. Most of these were about patient rights and philosophy of medical ethics and referring to the medical ethics in genetic and vulnerable groups is the lowest. About 51% of papers are review and analytical articles and 47% are descriptive and original. With respect to the importance and current needs of the community, some of the titles have been ignored. So, we can see some inconsistency in this domain in Iran. Therefore to resolve this discrepancy over viewing policies in this area is necessary.
