Background and Objectives: Before any development in scientific health activities, we have to observe its scope and compare it with health sector. Accordingly, the aim of this study was to determine the quality and quantity of the health-prioritized disciplines mentioned in the comprehensive health plan of Iran.
Methods: This scientometric cross-sectional study was done during 2010-2017. The study population was 26 prioritized areas in three categories of survival, excellence, and infrastructure according to comprehensive health plan of Iran in 2010. The data collection tool was the SCImago database. The number of documents, citation indicators, and h-index were analyzed by Excel.
Results: The findings of the research showed that the highest h-index of Iran in the excellence, survival, and infrastructure category was in Nano (90), infectious diseases (67), and systematic ecology (56), respectively. Moreover, the highest ranked citations in three categories of survival, infrastructure, and excellence were related to traditional medicine, family medicine, and dentistry with a global rank of 8, 9 and 15, respectively. In categories of excellence, survival and infrastructure; public health, bioinformatics, and infectious diseases had the highest number of products with 7045, 5371 and 5135 articles.
Conclusion: There has been a marked improvement in the quality and quantity of all the subject categories over time. The general domains of excellence, survival, and infrastructure categories had the highest mean H-index, and the highest average growth rate of scientific productions was related to excellence, infrastructure and survival categories, respectively.
