The research and technology observatory system is the first online center in Iran. It was established to assist Iranian policy makers in the field of science, research and technology. It provides the policy makers with information they require to compare, report and monitor changes and advancements in scientific, research and technological information. This observatory system uses the science and technology information gathered, organized, preserved, analyzed, and disseminated by IranDoc in over half of a century.
The observatory system composed of several dashboards delivering management and decision-making tools in the field of science, technology and innovation. Each dashboard represents part of the information and interactions among researchers across the country. These dashboards are as follows:
★ Parsa dashboard: it delivers information on Iranian dissertations, theses, and research proposals (accessible only for policy makers);
★ Research projects dashboard (accessible only for policy makers);
★ Parsagar dashboard: selective information on Iranian dissertations and theses grouped under disciplinary areas;
★ Similarity-check dashboard: it delivers similarity-check reports on the scientific manuscripts which have been submitted to the similarity-check system. In particular, this dashboard delivers reports on the dissertations and theses produced by Iranian scholars (accessible only for policy makers).
