[Correspondence] Iran and science publishing in the post-sanctions era

After Iran and a group of six other countries signed a landmark nuclear agreement in July, 2015, with the aim of lifting sanctions imposed on Iran for a decade, the future of science research in Iran has become a major topic of interest among academics and policy makers worldwide. It will now be interesting to explore and understand what can be expected of scientific development in Iran now that the sanctions have been lifted.
