The paper analysis quantitatively 3830 papers published during 1999-2011 by the University of Madras in various domains like . Our work is based on data from the Web of Science and covers the 1999 to 2011 period. During 1999–2011 University of Madras publications have received a total of 25103 citations. The average number of citations per year was 1931. The average number of citations per publication was 6.55. The authors with most prolific publications were D. Welmurugan who topped the list with 317 publications during the period under study followed by R. Raghunathan with 254 publications, M N Ponnuswamy with 192 publications, H K Fun with 160 publications, K Ravikumar K with 146 publications, A K Mohanakrishnan with 138 publications, P Varalakshmi with 108 publications. Core journals preferred for publishing with high number of publications were: Acta Crystallographica Section E Structure Reports Online with 571 publications, Acta Crystallographica Section C Crystal Structure Communications with 87 publications, Tetrahedron Letters with 80 publications, Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry with 63 publications, Chemico Biological Interactions with 59 publications, Synthetic Communications with 57 publications, Current Science with 56 publications. Our analysis does not provide detailed insight on publications in another most important publication channel – scientific monographs – due to non-existence of suitable quality indicators.
