Background and Aim: Web 2.0 capabilities in research fields have provided numerous conveniences for scholars. This, has consent people to interact and share their publications with other scholars across the world. The purpose of the research is to study the presence of Shahid Beheshti University Scholars in ResearchGate.

 Method: Used approach in this paper is Scientometrics with Altmetrics method. For data gathering,  ResearchGate page Shahid Beheshti University was scrutinized.

Resutls: Findings indicated that disciplines of Chemistry, Laser, Plasma and Physics had the outermost presence in ResearchGate. In contrast, humanities had not any somber activities in Research Gate. Although, criteria for knowledge production and researchers interaction in  sciences are not conclusive, it seems that interaction of humanity professors with the Web and its potentials could result in formation of new ideas for future research.  It is concluded that in new era of education, web sites like: ACADEMIA, Research Gate, Mandalay would have an immense role in the development of research activities.

Conlcusion: It should be noted that in the new era of research and education, science, social networking websites such as: Academia, ResearchGate and Mandalay a key role in the training and development of their research. Establishing some workshops on using academic social networks can affect on knowledge of scholars, faculty member and students and direct their information seeking way for these people

Purpose: This is an applied research, with the aim of a comparative study of the presence and participation of Iranian and international researchers affiliated with the top scientific centers (Times Ranking 2020), in the Research Gate research network. Altimetric indicators, such as "RG score", "Reads", "number of registrations" and "number of research items" were considered.
Methodology: Survey performed with altimetric approach and analytical method. Sample of top 10 universities in Iran and 10 scientific centers around the world by Times Ranking  performance index of education, research, knowledge transfer, and international perspective done. First, a comparative study of the activities of Iranian researchers with one another, then of international researchers completed separately. Lastly, an analysis of the differences in performance amongst these two groups was performed by "Libre Office Calc" software.
Findings: Among Times top 10 international scientific institutes, the indicators of "number of registrations," "RG-score per member," "number of publications per member" and "reads" the highest rates were observed in researchers at Cambridge University in London, the California research center, and the California research center at Oxford university, respectively. Among the top 10 Universities in Iran, the indicators of "number of registrations," "RPG score per media member," "number of research copies per member" and "reading rate of research copies, "among the researchers with organizational affiliation to the Amir Kabir University of technology, Tehran University of medical sciences, Iran university of medical sciences, Tehran university of medical sciences, the highest amount was observed. The total "average score per member" at the international level was 8.4 and at the Iranian level was 5.1. The "average reads" index for the top 10 universities or research institutes at the international level was 154990.2. The figure was obtained for the top 10 universities in Iran, 22736.1.
Conclusion: Researchers affiliated with top universities in Iran, compared to their international counterparts, have a stronger social interaction in terms of indicators of ResearchGate in activities such as "enquiring," "answering questions" and "suggestion." Although the difference between the number of research items shared internationally is more than 3 times that of Iran, but the average RG score is not seen 3 times that of Iran globally. So, the high RG score is not related to the number of research items on the ResearchGate. Also, comparative study on the presence and activities of researchers affiliated with Times top Universities in Iran and internationally could lead to better future.
