The selected five IISERs published a total of 3,354 research articles which comprise 47.34% share of internationally co-authored articles. The publications are interpreted in terms of chronological growth, collaboration trend, focus sub-areas, scholarly communication channels, leading collaborating countries, keywords and citation impact. Among the selected IISERs, IISER-P followed by IISER-K and IISER-M were the major producers of research papers. Since 2016, a sharp rising trend in terms of publication output and international collaborative efforts was observed. Furthermore, the collaboration trend also witnessedthat there were a strong international collaboration linkages among IISERS and developed countries like the USA, Germany and Italy were the primary collaborating countries.In addition, the international experimental research consortia like CMS, LIGO, VIRGO and BELLE Collaboration played a crucial role in global cooperative research efforts of IISERs.
