Hasan Ashrafi-rizi, Fatemeh Zarmehr


The process of science production, especially in the health field, is sensitive, time-consuming, and costly (1-2). Findings in the health research area can be effective in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. "Achieving this goal is impossible unless the process of the selection subjects up to the use of information is precise, systematic and scientific " (3); this work follows this goal, stating that the production cycle of science, researcher, information systems (health libraries and databases) and users of scientific production in the field of health should pay attention to the expected profits, i.e. the profits of the research that individuals or organizations are expected to do.
