This study aims to extract the indicators of technology and innovation from upstream documents, to examine how they align with similar indicators in the National Report on Monitoring and Evaluation of Science, Technology and Innovation, and to examine the state of technology and innovation in Iran based on the goals of policy documents.
This is a descriptive-analytical study that has been conducted using scientometrics methods to comparatively study the measurement and evaluation indicators of technology and innovation policy documents. To compare and analyze the current situation with the desired one, the study uses the data for the period of 5 years, from 1393 to 1397 (2018-2014), using the National Report of Monitoring and Evaluation of Education, Research, and Technology of the country in the year 1997.
The comparison of technology and innovation evaluation indicators in the country's comprehensive scientific plan and the Sixth Five-Year Development Plan with the national monitoring system indicates that there is little overlap between monitoring indicators and upstream documents . In some cases, the monitoring system is not able to respond to policy documents of the state of science and technology in Iran. Therefore, the indicators of the monitoring system need to be further reviewed and overlapped with the policy documents. The proposed indicators and desirable quantities in both policy documents need to be updated with the current situation and aligned. Studies have indicated that Iran has had a desirable function in some indicators and a poor performance in some indicators compared to the desired quantities. For example, we had a good jump in the "number of knowledge-based enterprises" Indicator, but in some indicators, such as the "number of patents and discoveries registered nationally and internationally" we are far from the approved amount of policy documents
