Spanish scientific productivity within Psychiatric studies is measured by analyzing the volume of doctoral dissertations carried out by professors of Psychiatry at the different Spanish public universities, between 1993 and 2002, and registered on the official data base Tesis Españolas Ordenadas (TESEO). The sample consists of 126 university professors and associate professors and a total of 294 thesis dissertations. In this study, only those dissertations supervised by a doctor have been taken into account. The resulting proportion is 2.33 dissertations per professor. The most productive professor supervised up to 17 theses; hence, these data result in a mean of 2 theses per year. A total of 28 professors, 22.2% of the sample, supervised 210 theses, which represents 71.42 % of the whole production. The university with the highest rate of dissertations on Psychiatry between 1993 and 2002 is the University of Alcalá de Henares, with a proportion of 20 theses per professor, followed by University of Cadiz with 6.66 theses per professor. The University of Extremadura reaches the third place with 5.33 theses per professor. At the end of this paper, some conclusions about the state of the art on this topic have been obtained.
