in the theoretical dimension, the current article focuses on the analytical function of the concept of political awareness in domestic scientific articles and reflects the ways of using this concept in the theoretical models of previous studies. In the experimental dimension, the article sought to discover the generalizable experimental dimensions of political awareness in Iranian society and to draw a scatter map of the study of components connected with this phenomenon in order to know the points of emptiness and accumulation. With this description, two questions have been raised: "What are the methods of conceptualization and theoretical explanation of the phenomenon of political awareness in Persian language scientific articles?" and "To what extent is there synergy between empirical findings on various aspects of political awareness in Iranian society?" 21 articles (quantitative and qualitative) were selected for a systematic review of the analytical features of articles in the field of political awareness, of which only 16 quantitative articles were present in the process of collecting experimental data and meta-analysis studies. The findings of the article show that the trend of political awareness studies in Persian articles is towards the theoretical analysis of this concept as a dependent variable. The most synergy between the empirical results of the studies in this field refers to the confirmation of the effect of the "media" variable on increasing political awareness, and the confirmation of the effect of "demographic characteristics" and the rejection of the effect of "social class" on political awareness is in the next rank.
