Scaling analysis provides insights into the critical region of metal-insulator transition (MIT). An analysis of conductivity near MIT is carried out in five conducting polymers by using a single scaling function, showing the universal behavior near critical regime. The conductivity of metallic samples merge to upper branch and that of insulating samples merge to lower branch of the scaling equation fits; with the fit parameters: conductivity exponent μ ≈ 1, correlation length exponent ν ≈ 1 and dynamic exponent z ≈ 2.5 in all five samples. Although conducting polymers are complex materials, the consistent values of critical exponents in quite different systems show the interesting feature of universality near MIT
