Aim: The aim of the research is to evaluate the scientific studies conducted by the history of veterinary medicine and deontology in Turkey in terms of bibliometric properties.

Materials and Methods: In this study, which is planned to be carried out periodically, first of all, the 65-year time period from the establishment of the first department of the field to 2015 is discussed. Thereafter, it is planned to update the study at ten-year intervals. The material of this study was composed of the data included in the research named "Bibliography of scientific studies of the history of veterinary medicine and deontology academicians in Turkey (1950-2015)". In this context, in the bibliography; bibliometric analysis of theses, book / book chapters, articles and presentations were made. Studies were evaluated in terms of year, subject and journal variables. The data were analyzed in tables.

Results: It was determined that the highest number of doctoral theses (n=11, 40.74%), book/book chapters (n=18, 34.62%) and national articles (n=83, 32.55%) were prepared between 2010-2015. The highest number of articles abroad (n=13, 39.40%) was published between 2000-2009, the highest number of national presentations (n=102, 45.33%) were presented between 2000-2009, and the highest number of international presentations (n=84, %56,75) was presented between 2010- 2015. When the subject trends of the academicians were evaluated, it was determined that the most studies were done on history (Doctoral theses (n=19, 70.38%), book/book chapters (n=20, 38.46%), national articles (n=183, 71.76%), articles abroad (n=14, 42.43%), national presentations (n=103, 45.78%) and international presentations (n=86, 58.11%). The most national articles were published in the Journal of the Turkish Veterinary Medical Society (n=60, 23.53%), the most articles abroad were published in the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education (n=5, 15.15%).

Conclusion: With this study, the bibliometric profile of the studies in the field was revealed and the general tendencies of the academicians were tried to be determined. It is thought that the study will contribute to the determination of the scientific level of the history of veterinary medicine and deontology, which is getting richer with scientific research and publication activities. It can be argued that the scientific performance of the field can be determined by conducting bibliometric studies periodically within the framework of the determined date ranges and it will shed light on the qualitative and quantitative evaluations to be made for the field performance.
