Currently, the main asset for every country is the produced and acquired science and technology in the country. [Alidousti, 1996]. In Islamic Republic of Iran, as Iran 1404, the Vision Document or 20-Year Document dictates the country will be the first in the region [Iranian 1404 Perspective Document, 2006].

This has resulted in a national research movement and hence, the number of scientific documents has been extremely rising in the recent years. One of the main requirements and infrastructures for this research movement is to have well established policies and guidelines for national research information system [Horri, 2006], [Zandian,2008].

The “Commission of Science and Technology Information System” – CSTIS under the authority of Ministry of Science, Research and Technology has been established to provide policies in registration, collection, organization, dissemination and publication of scientific information. CSTIS also is designed to enforce
consistency among its subordinate libraries and scientific information centers [Horri, 2006].

In this paper, the architecture of the commission and its outcomes and achievements during last six years are presented.
