Methodology: this work is an applied research with a descriptive-analysis approach. The research population consists of scientific presentations at the First National Festival of Scientific Research of Iran Public Libraries Foundation. Data were collected through the festival database. Analysis of data was performed with SPSS Software version 18. Findings: The findings show that the number of publications by the employees has reached 469 works since the establishment of Foundation up to 2011. In comparison to the other publication types, the most works were published in the form of article. The highest number of scientific publications belongs to the 2010 and the lowest one to the 2007. Except for 2004, the scientific publications of employees have had a positive growth rate. This rate ranges between -0.39 (in 2004) and 1.88(in 2003). The Chi-square test showed a significant difference between gender and discipline of employees and the type of their scientific publications. On the other hand, there was not a significant difference between the scientific degree of employees and the type of scientific publications.
