Purpose: This study aimed to clarify the status of scientometric indicators and science measurement organizations.
Methodology: This article is a descriptive and library research. Searching in scientific databases and literature review, we identified r science measurement organizations and scientometric indicators, then extracted checklist. After classifying the bases, a log completed for each of them and they finally were analyzed using Microsoft Excel.
Findings: scientometric indicators in each group are different from scientometric databases. The scales of indicators “impact factor” used in base 22 (38.52) were identified as the most applied scientometric indicator. The “Hirsch index” with at least 15 bases of assessment (71.35) were in second place. As well as the bases of the study, “universities ranking databases” were the highest index using scientometric indicators (85 indicators) and “human and financial databases” obtained the second rank using 56 indicators. In other bases, “JCR” and “professional or subject index” using seven indicators, jointly located at the sixth lowest rate in the indicators, respectively.
Conclusion: The results of the study showed that the measurement bases are different in using scientometric indicators, and similar indicators can be introduced for each group of measurement bases.
