Background and Aim: this research was performed to investigate factors affecting the commercialization of research results in knowledge-based companies using a descriptive survey.

Method: this was a descriptive survey and since it defines the relations between variables, it is correlational. To collect the required research data, a researcher-made questionnaire was used. This questionnaire includes 39 questions in 8 dimensions (individual, organizational, environmental-organizational, cultural-social, legal, economic, political and industrial factors) and 5 questions related to commercialization. The statistical population of this research includes 970 of the CEOs of knowledge-based companies based in the Science and Technology parks of six major cities of Iran and the sample size was determined to be 275 based on Cochran's formula. Data analysis was performed using the SPSS-20 and Amos-20 software.

Results: the results from this research showed that all the 8 factors significantly predict success in the commercialization of research results; but the results from the simultaneous investigation of the role of predictive variables in the commercialization of research results showed that the following items have the most significant roles in the commercialization of research results: legal (β=056, p<0.05), industrial (β=0.28, p<0.05), organizational (β=0.23, p<0.05), individual (β=0.13, p<0.05), and economic (β=0.12, p<0.05). 

Conclusion: based on the results, in order to invest in the development of the infrastructures of the commercialization of research results, the greatest amount of focus must be placed on legal, industrial, organizational and ultimately economic factors respectively because the development and revision of these factors will indirectly affect the other factors.

Background and Purpose: Knowledge management is a process that helps organizations in identify, select, organize, publication and transfer unstructured information and skills. Today, this experience has failed in some organizations about knowledge management. Academic libraries are also subject to similar conditions as an organization. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to identify and compare the barriers of knowledge flow in the libraries of State and Islamic Azad universities.
Methodology: The research method is a survey-analytical type. Data collected using a questionnaire from managers of 120 central libraries of universities. For statistical analysis, simple t-test is used.
Findings: The dimensions of the source of knowledge and the technical and technological factors of knowledge in the libraries of the public and private universities are significant, meaning that the conditions of the libraries of state universities are better. Comparing the results of communication channels, management and individual factors, there was no significant difference, although managerial barriers were evident in both groups. In the context of comparing knowledge management processes, in the process of access and knowledge sharing, the libraries of public universities have a better performance than Islamic Azad universities, but in the processes of creation, identification, aggregation, review, and use of knowledge of state-run university libraries differs little from the libraries of Islamic Azad universities.
Conclusion: Considering the position and position of libraries, especially university libraries, in the process of knowledge management, in order to overcome obstacle challenges, improve and improve their current status, efficient management should be achieved, defined and operational strategic objectives It is important to consider employees as the main pillars of knowledge managers and to use the information technology tool effectively.

The average total component of reference services showed that subjects were willing to use this platform to receive reference services.
Conclusion: Mobile social networks have a scientific function for clients of the National Library, and they have already started using social networks for research purposes. From the users' point of view, these networks are a good communication channel for providing reference services, especially information literacy training and answering research questions.
