This is a conference paper presented at the ASIHL board of members in Japan, in 2018. In this paper which was presented at SOKA University, I (and Prof. Dr. Aini )provided our Country's report on the current and future roadmap of scientific relationship between Iran and East Asian Countries including Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, South Korea etc. The most interesting result of this paper was the huge number of scientists who were involved in these scientific ties (all together 17982 scholars from both sides).
In this paper, a scientometric approach is applied to study the trend and progress of “Scientific Diplomacy” in Iran’s relationship with Malaysia during the last few years. The results of the study show that, with 5569 joint publications and as part of the 10,239 authors from both countries, Iranian students in Malaysia have contributed to 9.8% of all Malaysian international joint publications between 2012 and 2017. This was equal to 2.06% and 3.6% of all scientific publications in Iran and Malaysia, respectively.
This is a book in Persian which was written for the Iranian scientific community at three levels: for High Policy makers at government ministries, for University Levels (Top Managers), and for Scholars (researchers, lecturers and postgraduate students). Having "internationalization at home" as the main theme in my mind, I tried to transfer East Asian countries’' experiences and discourses on the Internationalization of Higher Education to Iran.
This book is published by ISCS under Iran's Ministry of Science, Research and Technology.
