As reported by BASNA, Dr. Mohammad Javad Dehqani, President of Islamic World Science Citation Database (ISC) said: Essential Science Indicators (ESI) database belonging to Clarivate Analytics (ISI) publishes and regularly updates the latest list of the top 1 percent institutions of the world that have received the highest number of citations in the past 10 years. These universities and research centers have been ranked among the top 1 percent institutions in terms of the number of citations received. Citations are an indicator of the quality of scientific productions in the academic world. Therefore, the reason for the increase in the number of these centers in the ranking is the increase in the quality of research in the country.

"According to a review of the latest update, 74 universities and research centers from Islamic Republic of Iran are ranked among the top 1 percent universities of the world that have had the highest impact", he added.

As noted by Dr. Dehqani, last year the number of top universities of the country was 65; thus, in comparison with last year, the number of Iranian universities in the top 1 percent has increased by 14 percent.

"Although citations are not without disadvantages, they are one of the most important indicators of the extent to which the research has been used. Currently, citation is the most important indicator in scientific evaluations at international level".

In the Science and Technology Policy Act communicated by the great leader of the country, the science and technology authority at international level has been stressed upon in the first article. Being authoritative means being a point of reference and in one way citation can be an indicator of the extent to which the generated knowledge has been used by other researchers.

Dr. Dehqani stated: "in 2015, a survey of the Essential Science Indicators database showed that 30 universities and research centers from Islamic Republic of Iran were ranked among the top 1 percent of the world. In 2016, with the increase in the quality of scientific productions of the country this number rose to 35. In February 2018, this number reached 53. In order to choose the universities with the highest impact, all of the universities and research centers of the world are identified and sorted by the extent of their impact and in the next step the top 1 percent of them which have had the most impact are selected and announced.

President of ISC noted: "we are proud to observe that in the latest update in December 2020, 74 universities and research centers from Iran are among the top 1 percent universities of the world with the highest impact.

Steps towards improving the quality of research, expanding international scientific interactions, and turning science into wealth and power are some of the other aspects in the agenda of the policymakers of science and technology of the country so that the scientific developments of the country continue to grow and progress multilaterally and rapidly.
