Scholarly authority is phrase(expression) that is introduced for the first time by supreme leader about imam sadigh university in meeting with students, faculty (professors), staff and managers of imam sadigh university in 1384: you should create movement in science you should create motion in education (student educating) world and development in science and scientific foundation of country. It is your main mission. You should train our Muslim and believer scientists to become some experts and master that the world uses their opinions and ideas (they possess worth spreading ideas). You should not aim at having better possession among the domestic universities in Tehran or other cities but you should aim at being the authority for scientific centers and the universities of the world research.
Nowadays even in this misguided western world there are many people that seek for truth there are many scientist and researchers that they try to find right and true(logical) things.
a person like that (that seek the truth in anywhere of the world in European, Asian, American countries or other) when he seeks for scientific things he should be able to find your scientific work in websites (you should already provide him your own scientific work). And by doing that you show your own new thought and idea. It is what we want from imam sadigh university. students of imam sadigh university should be graduated with this kind of intention and ideas (graduates of imam sadigh university should have this kind of intention and ideas). Official website of supreme leader.
Scholarly authority is the highest institution in selective scientific field. This matter will recall every person that seek for knowledge toward scholarly authority. There is scientific movement in scholarly authority that collect all the related knowledge form everywhere and everybody.
Scholarly authorities in selective science field should know where science frontier is. What are basic questions? Another aspect of collecting knowledge is that the getting together of outstanding professors of that scientific field (who asks questions and main responders). This (gathering knowledge (science) and scientist) could be happen by having effective presence in world’s authority network and having strong relation (connection) with them.
When we choose scholarly authority slogan for our university it is necessary to have relation with the world outside and it is One of the criteria that is introduced when we talk about (want to be) scholarly authority.
So scholarly authority by its nature means international relation and interaction because university product (science and scientist) should have relative advantage to be chosen in competition with other product.
Reference is the first pillar of scholarly authority. It means that others should refers to it and use(utilize) its answers and solutions or questions and issues. So reference criteria have application here (the application of reference criteria revealed here) so scholarly authority should provide simple and better access to its own product for others and this will make the scholarly authority to be recognized better and make it famous for people.
Authority has three levels: fundamental authority policy making authority and practical authority and it is obvious that in all three levels it is necessary to have interaction and relation with scientific centers.
In the(at) first level, the fundamental authority, fundamental sentences(propositions) and basic speeches are produced we are not going to find the answer of issues in this level but we must produce answer and present solution by referring to them. (but there is no way to produce answer and present solutions except by referring to them) such as methodology and philosophy of science. So at this level authority is at the depth of scientific field. Scientific and research centers and also researchers are the audience for this level. There are a few universities that are(work) in this level. And if we choose such level and work in that level, then we can really create authority(reference).
The second level of authority is policy making. In this level solutions and answers that are consistent with our ideals are produced. The special characteristic of the proposition(sentences) in this level is their goal aiming direction (is that they are toward the goals).   In this level we produce answers and present solution in controlled and directed and guided way.  Like the system of Islamic banking, comprehensive plan of media in Islamic countries. In fact, it is level that the strategic researches and studies are conducted in that. And the audiences of this level are policy making centers.
The third level of authority is practical authority. In this level there are answers and solutions for new (recent) questions and issues. In this level there in no difference between universities because all the universities try to respond(fix) to people’s needs and issues.  The authorities in this level is in the surface of that scientific field. So it is practical and because of that we are witness of giving supports and facilities to universities in this level and it will affect the society in visible manner. Most of the universities are in this level. And the of ranking best 500 universities is based on their situation in this level.
There are four characteristics for scholarly authorities and they have something in common that is active international communication and interaction and also it is necessary condition for their achievement.
  1. Scientific initiate trends (ignite meaningful trends): scholarly authority has answers for questions and solutions for issues. Some of the characteristics of scholarly authority is quality and strength of scientific answers simplicity and quickness of representing being timely and the quantity(plentitude) of answers.
  2. Supremeness(wisdom): scholarly authority is most knowledgeable institution in the selective scientific field. This thing will recall every person that seek for knowledge toward scholarly authority. There is scientific movement in scholarly authority that collect all the related knowledge form everywhere and everybody. Scholarly authorities in selective science field should know where science frontier is. What are basic questions? And which issue or matter does our rival concentrate on (work for)? Another aspect of collecting knowledge is that the getting together of outstanding professors of that scientific field (who asks questions and main responders). This (gathering knowledge (science) and scientist) could be happen by having effective presence in world’s authority network and having strong relation (connection) with them.
  3. Front-running: scholarly authority should expand (move change) science frontier. Scholarly authority change(break) the forms (styles) and expand science frontier with the innovation that comes from scientific power (strength) and courage. In fact, creating paradigms of scholarly authority comes from this concept. What makes the scholarly authority attractive and popular are the creativity innovation and revelation(creation) of new paradigm.
