Based on the most recent Webometrics ranking, released in January 2020, 148 Iranian universities are among world top universities by citations in top Google Scholar profiles, which provide a simple way for authors to keep track of citations to their articles.

According to an ISCA report, in the 2020 ranking beta version, a total of 4,314 colleges and universities in the world were considered and in Iran, almost 148 colleges and universities were included in the list of rankings.

Google Scholar Citations recently introduced the institutional profiles for providing rankings of scientists who shared the same standardized name and email address of an institution.

According to a statement on the Webometrics website, the ranking is an experiment for testing the suitability of including GSC institutional profiles data in the Rankings Web, but it is still in beta as there are many shortcomings that should be solved in future editions.
