Abstract

Introduction: Finding the powers and weaknesses in research programs is the first step of organizing research activities in society. According to this present study aimed to find out why students don’t do research in Zahedan University of Medical Sciences? Method: 98 students took part in this study. A two part questionnaire was used for data collection. The first part included personal factors which avoid students to do research and the second part included organizational factors. Finally the data was analyzed by SPSS v19 through descriptive statistics. Results: The mean of age was 21.61 ± 2.09 in this study. 26 (26.8) students were male while 72 (73.2) were females. The highest percentage in personal factors were for “I am not familiar with statistical basics”, “I am not familiar with methodology” and “I am too busy”. In organizational factors the highest percentages were for “authorities do not encourage us to do research”, “shortage of funds and resources. Conclusion: Due to the results of this study, giving enough consults in research, making funds and resources for research and encouraging the students can make students to do research. It seems that educating students in a way which they are doing the job themselves also can help to this matter. © 2017, World Informations Syndicate. All rights reserved.
