An analysis was performed on each article, including student participation, authorship, university of origin, topic of the article, type of article, and citation index. Results: Out of a total of 500 articles, 9.6% (48) had student participation, with a mean of 2.48 ± 1.76 students per article. Just over half (56.25%) corresponded to original articles. The students were the main authors in 43.75% of the articles. In 22.9% of these articles, the main topic was related to Dental Education, followed by Buccomaxillofacial Surgery and Oral Rehabilitation. Conclusion: Student scientific production in Peruvian dental journals is low, and mainly concentrates on original articles.
