Conferenceabstracts, letters, narrative reviews, opinions, commentaries, or editorials were excluded.Results:A total of 261 research articles were identified from 27 principal referral hospital pharmacy departments from 2018–2020.Median research output over 3 years wasfive (interquartile range, 3–9) articles. In terms of annual research, hospital pharmacydepartments in the 50th and 90th percentile for total publication output published two and ten original research articles every year,respectively. Overall, 56% (n=145) of the published studies were observational, 35%(n=90) had afirst author with a pharmacydepartment affiliation, 97% (n=252) had at least one author with a university affiliation, and in 5% (n=12) of the articles there wasmore than one hospital pharmacy department affiliation.Conclusion:On average, hospital pharmacy departments in Australian principal referral hospitals publish two original research arti-cles every year. Nearly all of these articles are published in collaborations with universities.
