In this study, 7 indicators out of 18 indicators of the first paragraph of Article 224 of the report on the “Fifth Development Plan” were selected based on a specific process. In the following, based on factor analysis, the 7 indicators of science production rank were placed in three dimensions to get the composite index of evaluating science production and ranking the universities of the subject matter was examined. In this assessment, regardless of approved budget, Tehran University top rated and in terms of allocating approved per capita budget, Kermanshah University was awarded the first place between Iran universities.
