Introduction: One of the most common anxieties in higher education is research anxiety. That is a kind of fear and unreliability to do research and creating effective, valid and scientific   production. The purpose of this study is to determine the research anxiety level and its related factors among Graduate Students in Hamedan University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This is a descriptive survey study. The statistical population includes 725 students (all Master, and PhD students of Hamedan University of Medical Sciences in 1394-96), that by using the Cochran sample size formula 193 students randomly selected and participated in this study. For gathering data, a researcher made questionnaire was used and collected data were analyzed  by Smart PLS software platforms, and ANOVA, T Test, T single sample and Chi-squared test through SPSS.
Results: Based on findings, the average research anxiety among the population of the study is (2.85) so that, it is lower than the average value (3). On the other hand, there’s a meaningful statistical difference between the average of research anxiety in different levels of graduate studies (P-value < 05/0) that means research anxiety in MS students is more than PHD students . Moreover, dimensions of knowledge and research methodology skills (0.9) and information literacy (0.86) have the most impacts to cause research anxiety.
Conclusion: The results demonstrate that the most of the graduate students in Hamedan University of Medical Sciences are not anxious in the process of science production. But, lack of knowledge and research methodology skills are the most effective reasons for research anxiety among students. This can cause some negative effects on research performance of students, and it is necessary the authorities address the effective reasons.
