Abstract: The paper presents a scenario in research activity undertaken by HP based authors solely or in collaboration with other authors at academic and research Institutes of Himachal Pradesh as visualized in SCOPUS. The data retrieved from SCOPUS covers the period 1952-beginning of Jan. 2015. 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. Authors of Himachal Pradesh have worked more in collaboration with the authors of other Indian states than with other International authors. Pure and applied sciences have remained the highly focussed areas of research as compared to Social sciences. Agriculture has emerged as the most researched subject area.
