Introduction: Scientific publication is fundamental for the development of knowledge. In the health field, evidence-based practice is promoted; therefore, it is necessary for higher education teachers to carry out research as part of their training. Objective: To describe the profile of obstetrics university teachers at a public university according to their scientific production. Methods: A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out on Obstetrics teachers of the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos to whom a questionnaire was applied to identify their characteristics; and a data sheet was used to identify the characteristics of their publications. Descriptive and inferential statistics were performed at a 95% confidence level. Results: 36.1% of obstetrics teachers published a scientific article between 2011 and 2020; 110 articles were identified, of which 68.2% were original articles, 54.4% had a teacher as the main author, 26.4% were indexed in Scopus. Differences were found between teachers who did or did not publish a scientific article with respect to training in thesis advising (p= 0.007), in scientific writing (p= 0.001), with participation in research workshops (p< 0.001), those responsible for courses (p< 0.001) and with experience in thesis advising (p< 0.001). Conclusions: There is a low proportion of obstetrics teachers who publish scientific articles; in addition; various academic, work and especially research characteristics are associated with this knowledge production.
