Background and aim: Given the special status of family therapy and constructive role of its scientific production for management and planning in this field and determining research priorities, knowledge of the status of national scientific production indexed in a prestigious international index is required. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the scientific production of Iranian researchers in the field of family therapy in the Scopus database during 1974-2015.
Material and methods: In this scientometric study, data were collected through the Advanced Search in Scopus Database. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Google Scholar Metrics was used to determine the journals with high H-index.
Findings: The results showed that researchers with organizational affiliation of Islamic Azad universities had the highest scientific production in this field. In addition, no document was submitted to Scopus database in the field of family therapy by Iranian researchers during 1975-1999.
Conclusion: The results showed that the trend of scientific production had descended in the field of family therapy in 2015. Thus, the Iranian researchers need more efforts in this field for publishing their scientific production and national Persian journals which publish the articles in this field should record their articles in citations databases such as Scopus, Google Scholar, Ebsco and other relevant ones.
