Introduction: Along with other areas (fields) in our country, the research in medical sciences is a necessity for the maintenance and improvement of community health. This task is accomplished by faculty members and research staff, which are the key factors to reach such goal. The objectives of this study were to determine the intra – organizational factors of conducting research in Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in order to improve and enhance the research projects. Material & Methods: The matrix of the study included entire academic members and research staff of the Tabriz University of Medical Sciences where 121 of them were randomly selected for the descriptive cross -sectional study. The variables were assessed by Likert Spectrum constructs and a questionnaire was designed to collect data. In the research, the process of approving proposals, levels of awareness of research facilities, status of collaborations among researchers, and the potential of researchers in conducting the research projects were thoroughly investigated. Statistical software, SPSS, was used to analysis data. Findings: Significant differences were seen with regard to access to facilities and conducting research (P=0.01), assessing benefits of conducting research (P=0.02), level of research awareness among academic members with and without research project (P=0.014). Differences of motivation force (P=0.8), collaboration (P=0.12), job satisfaction (P=0.09) and expecting benefits from conducting research (P=0.019) were shown to be not significant. Discussion & Conclusion: As stated by academic members, the problems due to personal factors were more apparent than those problems due to intra-organizational factors. In other words, the major problems in not doing research were the lack of sufficient time and proper skills in research method and the absence of innovation in looking for the problems to be solved. Systemic factors including lengthy procedures involved in approving the proposals and lack of awareness from the research priorities were the secondary obstacles. In other hand, levels of access to the facilities, research awareness, and evaluation of research from the corresponding benefits were higher among those involved in research projects.
