Biomedical research productivity from under developed regions and low income countries are generally low. This has been attributed to multiple reasons even in those relatively rich countries such as Libya. The volume and trends of biomedical publication productivity in the oral medicine and dentistry from Libya was investigated using “PubMed” database with a focus contributions from on Libyan academic institutions. A low quantity and quality of dental and oral research productivity was detected in Libya not matching the wealth of this small nation. Poor distribution of this productivity throughout the geographical landscape of Libya was also evident. Libyan biomedical research infrastructure requires reforms and funding.
