  Background and aim: With rapid innovations and advancements in information and communication technologies in this era, the status of journals of Islamic Republic of Iran and the efforts to improve the quality and quantity of Iranian journals in international level are very important. The present research intends to assess indexed Iranian journals in Scopus database quantitatively and qualitatively.

  Material and methods : The present research is a descriptive survey which can be applied through Scientometrics methods. Scopus database is the data source here. This research community comprises all Iranian scientific journals indexed in Scopus database during 2000-2012. Statistical software Excel was used to analyze the data and network analysis software NodeXL was applied to draw shapes.

  Findings : Findings indicate that an increase in the number of indexed Iranian Journals in Scopus database from 8 titles in 2000 has reached to 113 titles in 2012. These findings also show that more academic-scientific institutes and centers have been in charge of managing and indexing scientific journals during the study years.

  Conclusion: Unlike the quantitative growth in the number of indexed Journals, the quality of indexed Iranian journals (except for few cases) does not have a desirable condition. Thus, the policies on this issue can be helpful in this regard.
