Web presence is one of the areas of research in the field of webometrics. Due to lack of precise information on the presence of the Knowledge and Information Science (KIS) faculty members in Iran, this study aims to address this problem. It studies the level and quality of the presence of the LIS faculty and its relation to their professional effectiveness, focusing on their academic and professional performance. This study is an applied research, taking two approaches: descriptive survey and webometrics. The study participants are the KIS faculty members in Iran who hold a PhD degree, have senior lecturer (assistant professor) position and positions above that, and have scientific publications and web citations. A checklist was used to collect the webrelated data on their presence, and a questionnaire was designed to collect the data on their academic and professional activities. Three databases were used to collect the web-related data, namely Google, Google Scholar and the Iran Science Citation Index. The data was analyzed using statistical analysis and tests of descriptive and interpretive types. From the web presence perspective, the findings revealed that besides experienced academics, younger academic members have remarkable web presence. The findings showed that there is a meaningful relationship between the level of presence of the studyparticipants and their publications. KIS academics of Ferdowsi University of Mshhad and Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz have gained highest positions according to publication web presence in Google. Also, scientific databases, self citations and university websites have got the first to third ranks in order to publication web presence themes. In addition, results showed us publishing Farsi and English articles in credible refereed journals is the most important theme in scientific and professional performance.
Keywords: Web Effectiveness, Information and Knowledge Science, Iran Science Sitation Index, Google Scholar, Google, Scientific and Professional Performance.
