Research collaboration between university and industry is so significant in knowledge flow from university to industry as well as makes it practical. One of the main channels for this purpose is university- industry co- publication. The aim of the research is to investigate the university and industry collaboration based on the co-publication indicator in the Persian documents which are indexed in the Iran Science Citation Index (SCI) in 1994 and also to identify universities and industries that collaborate in these publications and finally to map the structure of co- publication network on the political map of Iran. In order to calculate the collaboration, the “total count” method of co-authored is applied and collaboration network is mapped by Excel and Ucinet and Pajek soft wares in the GPS environment. The results shows that in 1394, 270 co- publication articles were indexed in the SCI database by 94 universities and 150 industry unites. Adjusting geographical distribution of co-publications of university and industry on Iran’s political map revealed that 30 provinces involved in collaboration. Among them Tehran province has the most collaboration with others and Khoozestan and Esfahan provinces are in next ranks respectively. The results show that the number of co-publication of university and industry, is so low and is limited to the specified universities and industries. Because of the importance of co-publication as a tool to commercialize university knowledge and improving targets of knowledge- based economy, the research policies should be adopting in the way that increase the publication of university and industry.
