The objective is to analyze the scientific production of the rectors of licensed Peruvian universities. The scientific production of the rectors was identified through the search of their publications registered in Scopus and Web of Science. It was reported that only 14.29% of Rectors have published articles and the average h-index in the databases is 3.62 and 1.14, respectively. It is concluded that the scientific production of the rectors is low, and it is important to establish policies that help the universities to have criteria in the election of the rector in relation to their scientific production.
