The analysis of scientometric indicators allows measuring the academic and research activity performance of universities. To date, there are no scientific works that explain the use of metric analysis to study the collections of articles of Carlos Rafael Rodríguez University of Cienfuegos (UCf) that are stored in databases of indexed journals. This article aims to describe the behavior of the scientific production of the UCf in the Scopus database for the period 2011-2020. A descriptive bibliometric study was conducted in order to measure the scientific production taking into consideration the following indicators: production, impact, collaboration, positioning, and their relationship with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It was concluded that the university still has a long way to go in terms of scientific productivity in spite of the growth seen in recent years, the number of articles produced is still insufficient and their impact is relatively low compared to the articles of other renown universities in the country. The relationship between the SDGs and the scientific publications of the UCf is not high and new connections are being established with SDGs 4, 9 and 7 that promote the development of education, industry and clean energy. Similarly, a link was detected between these and the increase in citations. As a final point, it can be asserted that the Revista Universidad y Sociedad (University and Society Scientific Journal) has directly influenced the behavior of scientific production of this university.
