With the development of scientific researches in China, more and more domestic researchers have their research results published in overseas journals, especially those that are indexed by Science Citation Index. There are great progresses in the field of Traditional ChineseMedicine, and many research results are published in the journals indexed by Science Citation Index. Hence, the Science Citation Indexed papers have gradually become one of the measures for evaluating achievements in scientific research in Traditional Chinese Medicine Colleges. In this study, the number of papers published as first author and/or communication author was investigated from January 2006 to December 2011 in the Traditional ChineseMedicine Academy of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, obtained through the information resource center retrieval of the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China. The results obtained indicated that although the number of papers was in the increasing tendency, it was different in various majors. The author took the Chinese Medicine Academy as an example to evaluate the correlation between the human resource distribution and Science Citation Indexed papers, thus providing a reference for the objective evaluation of scientific researches in the future.
