The purpose of this study is to compile a paradigm model for producing scientific content in the field of student sports in Iran. The research method in terms of strategy is qualitative, sequential and exploratory with an applied-developmental goal, which is from the grounded theory method with Strauss and Corbin (2008) approach. Statistical population: Academic experts of physical education and sports sciences working in education and  training Office & universities of the country were selected by theoretical (judgmental) sampling. After the interview with the twenty-fourth expert, theoretical saturation were obtained. Data analysis was performed with open, axial & selective coded worksheets of documents and semi-structured interviews, during the five rounds of interviews until a theoretical consensus was reached on identifying the categories of Central concept, causal conditions, contextual conditions, intervening conditions, strategies & consequences. The research instrument was coding sheets according to the researcher›s instructions, the validity of which was confirmed by the members of the Delphi group and its reliability was calculated by P-Scott criterion (agreement coefficient between coders) of 0.96. The Results in the form of 84 categories and 299 conceptual codes in the six dimensions of the paradigmatic model as causal conditions (17 categories, 102 items), Central concept of producing scientific content (10 categories, 55 items), strategies (21 categories, 49 items) at individual, intermediate and macro levels, Contextual conditions (11 categories, 47 items), intervention conditions (16 categories, 60 items) and outcomes (10 categories, 87 items) were included. As a result, Prerequisites and Outcomes of the producing scientific content in the field of Iranian student sport can be useful and practical. producing scientific content in the country requires structural, strategic, managerial and professional reforms.
