The instrument for data collection was a questionnaire consisting of 3 individual characteristics, organizational barriers and individual barriers in Likert scale. Data analysis was done by student’s T, Chi square and variance analysis tests.

  Results: 452 questionnaires were returned. The most important barriers of research were “inadequate incentives in researchers”, “inadequate time and lots of work”, “too much official red tapes”, “not using the research results” and “inability to translate Persian articles to other languages”, respectively. The least important barriers were “not interesting in research”, “difficulties in computer usage” and “limited benefit of research to patients”. The mean of organizational barriers was more than personal barriers (p<0.0001). There was a significant difference between the mean of organizational and individual barriers of research among faculty members and employees (p<0.0001).

Conclusion: Removing these barriers by the research officials & hospital managers is necessary.
