Background and Purpose: One of the most important conceptual and thematic priorities in twenty-year visions of the country has been to develop scientifically, and achieve high scientific progress and excellence and the optimum position in the various global relations. Since scientific production is one of the most important missions of universities, the aim of this study was to review the scientific production of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences, before and after the implementation of the strategic planning.
Method: This descriptive-analytical study was conducted on six research centers at Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences. The current research adopted the census method, and the data was collected through definition data collection form, and all statistical analyses were carried out using SPSS (V20.0) through descriptive statistics and inferential statistical methods, such as Kolmogorov-Smirnov, t-test, and Chi-square.
Result: The results showed that the total score improved after the implementation of strategic planning (Sig. = 0.0001). In addition, there was a meaningful relationship between the total scores before and after the implementation of strategic planning in clinical centers and non-clinical research centers (Sig.=0.000).
Conclusion: The Strategic planning in research organizations can act as a driving force along with other factors for the progress in all areas of science, and it was found that achieving comprehensive development without proper utilization of research findings will undoubtedly be impossible. Hence, it is necessary for academic centers, and especially for universities of medical sciences, to prepare their current planning with environmental assessment, and regularly pursue strategic opportunities to fulfill the role of research and technology organizations in the knowledge-based economy.
