OBJECTIVE
The current study investigated the contribution of the dissertations produced in the field of cardiology to the scientific literature and the factors affecting the publication process.


METHODS
The study included 1049 cardiology dissertations archived in the national thesis center database between January 2010 and December 2017. The titles (English and Turkish), abstracts, and author names of cardiology dissertations were searched in Google Academic, TR Directory, and PubMed Central databases. In addition to their publication rates, the subject of the cardiology dissertations, the type of research, the type of institution, the academic title of the cardiology dissertation advisors, the duration of publication, the index of the published journals, and the quartile ranking of the Science Citation Index and Science Citation Index Expanded journals were examined.


RESULTS
Among the reviewed 1049 cardiology dissertations 42.7% (n = 448) were published in a journal. The publication rate of cardiology dissertations among male authors was 43.5% and among female authors 40.1%. The cardiology dissertations were published at the highest rate after the 60th month. Among the published cardiology dissertations, 63.4% (n = 284) appeared in journals indexed by the Science Citation Index and Science Citation Index Expanded. There was no statistically significant relationship between the academic titles of cardiology dissertation advisors and the quartile ranking of Science Citation Index and Science Citation Index Expanded journals (P = 0.072).


CONCLUSIONS
There were difficulties in transforming into a publication of dissertations in the field of cardiology to gain an academic identity. Incentives should be created to increase the desire and motivation of the residents.
