Abstract: 

University is a suitable place for research because of enough facilities and active students. Each student should has enough knowledge in research field before his or her graduation. Submission of an appreciate thesis could be a beginning for advanced research, therefore we evaluated the methodological structure of submitted theses by medical students in Iran university of medical sciences in first academic term of 1999. In this cross-sectional study we studied all theses belong to medical students graduated in first term of 1999. Different parts of thesis (e.g. title, abstract, introduction, method and material, results, discussion and references) were evaluated for methodological structure and analyzed by statistical tests. In this study “title” gained highest score (14.97 out of 15) and then “results” gained 19.31 out of 25, “introduction” gained 11.66 out of 15, “method and material” gained 75.8 out of 100, “discussion” gained 13.1 out of 20, and “references” gained 7.83 out of 15. Also, “new ldeas” gained 34.3 out of 40 (range: 23.38-35.22), “regularity” gained 16.88 out of 20 (range: 16.14-17.63), “Suggestions” gained 24.58 out of 45 (range: 21.78-27.4). Mean score for “methodological structure” was 224.8 out of 305 (range: 217.46-222.14). Although this study is about evaluation of methodological structure of theses, it would be necessary for more research about superiority and quality of theses, and statistical errors of them. We suggest that allthese must be evaluate carefully not only for methodological structure but also for all scientific featuresfor up-grading quality of theses.
