Abstract: 

Dear Editor, The number of publications plays a major role in assessing scientific progress in different countries. To determine the status of our country in terms of the number of published papers in indexed peer-reviewed medical journals, we searched MEDLINE/PubMed.
This database belongs to the National Library of Medicine, the world’s largest biomedical library located in Bethesda, Maryland, USA, which is freely accessible and contains over 18 million journal citations since 1948.
1 This approach has been applied to ascertain the contribution of different countries to scientific articles in different medical fields as well as ophthalmology.
2-5 We searched PubMed for articles from different ophthalmic institutions which had mentioned their country of origin in the affiliation field. To have a better view, we compared Iran to some other developing, as well as developed countries, in terms of the number of ophthalmic publications. As all countries were not included in this search, the results do not reflect a comprehensive, but rather comparative ranking of different countries. We selected countries presumed to be influential in the field of ophthalmology and vision research. The search results were limited to a 30-year period, from 1981 to the end of 2010.
