The purpose of this research is to investigate the quantitative and qualitative status of Iran's scientific production in the field of environmental sciences and compare it with the countries of the Middle East to know about position of Iran and helping to policy making decisions in the environmental field. The present study is scientometrics approach. Scientific products in the field of Environmental sciences between 2008 and 2017 extracted from WOS database. HistCite and VOSviewer software are used for data analysis and drawing of scientific maps, and for statistical analysis, Excel software has been used. The results showed that Iran has 8147 indexed documents in the field of environmental sciences. The highest number of documents is for 2017. In terms of the number of documents in this field, Iran ranked 19th in the world and has the second place in the Middle East, also, In terms of international cooperation in the world and in the Middle East, Iran is the most cooperative with the countries of the United States and Turkey. The results indicate the growing trend of Iran’s documents in this area. Considering that Iran has a good position in the Middle East in terms of the number of documents and citations, it has had a poor performance in terms of international cooperation and the Relative Specialization Index (RSI), which should be taken into consideration.
