TEHRAN – The ratio of nano-articles to the whole variety of articles revealed in Iran is the very best on the planet, highlighting the quantity of consideration and precedence given to nano-sciences within the nation.

Based on StatNano, in 2021, practically 202,000 nano-articles have been issued in JCR- (Journal Quotation Stories) listed journals, accounting for about 8.2 % of the whole articles listed in WoS (Net of Science). Alternatively said, about 8 % of all scientific publications throughout the globe are within the discipline of nanotechnology.

By way of the ratio of nano-articles to the whole variety of articles, Iran nonetheless possesses the very best share on this index with 18.7 % of the whole articles falling within the class of nanotechnology.

The nation revealed a complete of 11,196 nano-articles in 2021, in keeping with the database.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and China adopted Iran with 17.4 %, 16 %, and 14.1 % shares of nano-articles to the whole variety of articles, respectively.

The variety of scientific articles is deemed a major parameter for measuring and evaluating the scientific growth of people, universities, and international locations and signifies their scientific effectivity.

Greater than 42 % of the world’s nanotechnology publications by 2021 have been written and revealed by Chinese language researchers. America, India, and Iran come subsequent with 11.5 %, 9.4 %, and 5.5 %, respectively.

China tops the record with greater than 85,700 nano-articles, with round 14 % of all of the Chinese language scientific articles falling into this class. Following China, america is in second place, having revealed about 23,200 articles (11.5 %), whereas India and Iran can be within the subsequent locations with 9.4 % and 5.5 %, respectively.

Iran ranked forty third among the many 100 most vibrant clusters of science and expertise (S&T) worldwide for the third consecutive 12 months, in keeping with the World Innovation Index (GII) 2020 report.

The nation skilled a three-level enchancment in comparison with 2019.

Sourena Sattari, vice chairman for science and expertise, has mentioned that Iran is enjoying the main function within the area within the fields of fintech, ICT, stem cell, aerospace, and is unequalled in synthetic intelligence.

Iran has created facilities in six Asian international locations for exporting nanotechnology merchandise, together with China, India, Indonesia, Syria, Turkey, and Iraq.

Nanotechnology’s pattern of growth is rising in Iran, because the variety of nanoproducts and tools developed within the earlier Iranian calendar 12 months (ended March 20, 2021) elevated to 750, in contrast with 647 a 12 months earlier than.

Some 223 product manufacturing firms and 59 tools manufacturing firms are lively within the discipline of nanotechnology and by the tip of final 12 months, which developed a complete of 750 merchandise and tools.

As of the beginning of a nationwide plan to develop the nanotechnology sector 15 years in the past, greater than 5,283 billion rials (about $19 million) have been allotted to nanotechnology initiatives.

Iran’s nanotechnology merchandise are typically categorised into three teams of products, providers, and tools, and the service sector has grown by practically 130 % over the previous 12 months (March 2020-March 2021).

Stories present that the most important share of the Iranian nano market, equal to 96 %, belongs to items. The service sector has grown by about 130 % final 12 months, from 443 billion rials (practically $1.6 million) to 1 trillion rials.

Scientific progress

Research present that Iran enters the 12 months 2022 with the fifteenth rank in science manufacturing worldwide and it’s anticipated to make progress over the following years because the coronavirus pandemic goes to ease.

Based on the most recent data on science manufacturing, Iran is ranked fifteenth on the planet within the worldwide system of Net of Science in 2021, with an h-index of 383, which signifies the standard of Iranian articles registered.

Iran’s scientific place within the Net of Science over the past 5 years reveals that the manufacturing of convention papers has been on a downward pattern throughout 2020 and 2021 as a result of outbreak.

The share of Iranian science manufacturing from convention papers has dropped from 7.38 % in 2017 to 1.26 % in 2021.

Scientific research and analyses extracted from the Scopus Worldwide Quotation Database confirmed that the speed of scientific contributions of Iranian researchers to the world elevated from 22.24 % in 2017 to 35.6 % in 2021.

Furthermore, the SCImago rating system offers individually with the rating of nations in science manufacturing, rating Iran as fortieth in 2021 when it comes to h-index. Additionally, when it comes to the variety of articles, Iran’s index is 376.

The SCImago rankings present that between 1996 and 2020, america, China, the UK, Germany, and Japan are within the high 5. Iran additionally ranked twenty first on the planet and second in West Asia.

NATURE INDEX additionally reveals that in 2021, contemplating that the most recent replace of this worldwide system for science manufacturing stories has not been accomplished but, Iran’s general rating is thirty fifth, which was 33 in 2020.
