The elements considered as a result of the scientific research are called scientific production, there are scientific and technical articles published in The Scientific Data Base. In this sense, a public university study was made in order to typify the scientific production in “Tecnológico Nacional de México” formed by 266 campuses. The problem of the research was the deficiency of analysis of the scientific production generated by the “Tecnológico Nacional de Mexico” through all the campuses that define it.
