The aim of this study is to determine the scientific production and perception of research in university students. Materials and methods: A descriptive, retrospective study was designed and included 144 undergraduate students of the Faculty of Dentistry, National University of San Marcos (Lima. Peru). A structured questionnaire was administered, with items such as academic/scientific production and the self-perception they have on knowledge of research methodology, article writing, and information searches. Results: The mean age of the students was 21.1 ± 2.3 years, with only 5 (3.47%) students reported having published and/or contributed to at least one scientific article. More than three-quarters (77.1%) considered scientific production important as a means to increase scientific knowledge. Less than half (47.2%) considered that they had average knowledge about writing scientific articles, and 55.6% had the same perception about academic/scientific search information. Conclusion: It can be concluded that the scientific production of students is very low, and most of them perceived they have average knowledge of research methodology, scientific writing, and information search skills.
