Various parameters like decade wise growth of publications, research productivity of top 10 authors, highly researched subject areas, the most cited papers, citation overview of the extremely preferred journals have been taken into account. This paper finds out the top 4 districts of Himachal Pradesh whose authors have come out with maximum research output.The study reveals that the research gained momentum after 1970 with the establishment of HP University. Out of top 10 authors 7 belong to Himachal Pradesh University.
