Objectives: The aim of this study was to conduct a bibliographic analysis of the theses on tetanus published in our country.
Materials and methods: The bibliometric analysis was carried out on tetanus-related graduate theses written in Turkey between 1971 and 2020. The
theses were examined in terms of date, type, subject, institution, sample size, and index.
Results: The study included 41 theses. The sample size ranged from 13 to 1,292. Ege University, Dokuz Eylul University, Gazi University, and Mustafa
Kemal University were the institutions with the most theses written from 28 different institutions. Thirty (73.1%) of the theses were medical specialty
theses. They were mostly written by the branches of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology (31.7%) and Microbiology (21.9%).
Conclusion: In the content analysis of the theses, it was determined that there were studies on antibody level/immunity/vaccine and seroprevalence,
but there were few studies on disease treatment. This study is limited to the theses written in our country. By expanding the scope of the study, more
detailed information can be obtained.
