Bibliometric measurement of scientific research production is one of the most practical methods for evaluating scientific situations of any nations. In this study, we assessed the number of scientific publications by authors from Muslim nations in journals indexed in Pubmed under “transplantation” subject. We found that Muslim nations have relatively very low publication rate in the field of transplantation. Moreover, except for Turkey, we did not detect an uplifting trend for the surveyed nations. Iran had quiet irregular trend with a very sharp missile like upwarding trend in 2007. In summary, Muslim nations with notable practice in transplantation should more fund and concentrate on scientific aspects of the practice for resolving local health dilemmas as well as exploring basic science for improving prognosis and quality of life of renal transplant patients.
