Universities are considered as the most important and key centers for education and
research in every country. The most important mission of every university is
scientific promotion and science production. The purpose of this study was

in the study and completed a questionnaire containing information about personal
characteristics, their scientific activities and scientific products during 2003-2007.
The data were analyzed using SPSS statistical software. For analysis, descriptive
methods and Chi-square test was used.
