Up to now, a lot of preeminent research and studies have been conducted about Turkey. Researchers have sought to know this neighbor which is considered as a junction for eastern culture and western one. Nonetheless, no research have been carried out about the Turkish studies in Iran .We attempt to consider the condition of Turkish Studies (TS) in four universities: Imam Sadiq University, Shahid Beheshti, Tehran and Allameh Tabatabaei Universities. Then, we tried to assess the literature of this realm to draw a complete road map in order to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the TS. Furthermore we attempted to indicate the research gaps which have to be considered by researchers. However, we didn’t discuss about all the important matters in the TS and we merely assess the matters which we recognized them as the most important ones.
This research shows that most of the analyses in the TS are non-theoretical. Almost %43 of the research are comparative and according to the research %46 of the dissertations suggest operating approach. 44% of the research in the TS are related to other field rather than political science. Among various kind of theories, convergence theory is the most popular one which was included in %19 research of this realm. Thirteen topics are the most popular which will be discussed in this research.
