The study is about the Scientometric analysis of published articles under the Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune since 2001 to 2019. Total of 6449 documents were studied. Specialisation Index and the Research Priority Index have been used for analysing the subjects and their sub-subjects Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Engineering. The study provides an overview of research conducted by the University and tries to show the weaker and stronger areas in four major subjects. The study measures and illustrates the research efforts taken by the Savitribai Phule Pune University in comparison with research efforts taken by the Nation and the World in the same subjects. The study found ‘Physics’ as a specialised subject in the University which obtained 1.455 SI Index Value. The study also reveals that ‘Medical Chemistry’ with 333.2 PI Value in Chemistry, ‘Polymer Science’ with 757.87 PI Value in Physics, ‘Microbiology’ with 1090.51 PI Value in Biology, and ‘Biotechnology Applied Microbiology’ with 936.9 PI Value in Engineering have received the highest research priority and corresponds to the Nation’s research productivity efforts in the same Sub-subjects. The study provides different ranking such as author’s productivity, most cited authors, author’s impact (h-index, g-index, m-index), most-cited journals and most contributed journals.
