D.    Scholarly Achievements
Although Hokumat-e Islami quarterly, which is being published to elaborate political jurisprudence and thoughts of Islam, contains useful content but holds no journal ranking. Therefore, in late 2009 and in 2010, the quarterly aimed to meet standards of scientific and research journals for both its content and form.
After frequent follow-ups, Hokumat-e Islami quarterly succeeded to achieve scientific and research ranking from the Supreme Council of Seminaries on 28th December 2010 and it has been counted as a scientific- research quarterly since issue no. 51.  
The issue no. 57 had a circulation of 2700 copies, the circulation of issue no. 58 was increased to 3000 copies, and issue no. 59 to 6000 copies.
After achieving the scientific- research ranking, the quarterly needed a scientific council to enrich its content. Thus, Mr. Layali, Mr. Raf‘ati, Mr. Eskandari, Mr. Arasta, Mr. Javan Arasteh, Mr. Rezwani, and Mr. Wara‘i were invited to contribute to the quarterly.
Enrichment of the content should be accompanied by proper distribution. So, in order to distribute the quarterly properly, the following steps have been taken:
1.    Searching and communicating with the heads of universities and academic institutions of the country
2.    Searching and communicating with faculties of universities and academic institutions of the country in the fields of law, political sciences, theology and Islamic knowledge, philosophy, and history. (1760 persons)
3.    Searching and communicating with directors, deputies, and professors of high levels of the centers for management of seminaries in different provinces (over 600 persons up to now)   
4.    Corresponding with Islamic Culture and Relations Organization and sending all cultural consultants out of the country 140 copies of the quarterly (since issue no. 58).
5.    Consulting with some cultural and educational officials and authorities out of the country and finding subjects for articles about the matters in which the Islamic world is involved, in order to be translated into Arabic and English and to be sent to target countries.
