jats:titleAbstract</jats:title>jats:pThe texture and magnetic anisotropy of a YBajats:sub2</jats:sub>Cujats:sub3</jats:sub>Ojats:sub7-x</jats:sub> (YBCO) film growth onto a MgO substrate are analyzed in order to understand the relation between them. X-ray diffraction shows the presence of the (00jats:italicl</jats:italic>) reflections from the YBCO layer with a grain’s fraction value 98%. Rocking Curves (RC) measurements reveal an out-of-plane texture with a full width at the half maximum of 0.81°, revealing a high uniaxial texture in the YBCO film. The temperature dependence of the susceptibility measurements obtained under many applied fields along jats:italicH</jats:italic>jats:subext</jats:sub> ||jats:italicc</jats:italic>-axis and jats:italicH</jats:italic>jats:subext</jats:sub>||jats:italicab</jats:italic>-plane reveals strong relationship between the uniaxial texture and the magnetic anisotropy, confirming the high ordering of the CuOjats:sub2</jats:sub> superconducting planes. In addition, the critical current density values are obtained from the hysteresis loops and compared to similar YBCO films with uniaxial and biaxial texture reported elsewhere.</jats:p>
