Analysed 2830 most valuable citations spread over 561 publications made by the NML scientists and researchers indexed in Science Citation Index retrieved through the Web of Science. Determines research and citation impact using the parameters such as extent of citation received in terms of number of citation per paper, year wise break up of citation, domain wise citation, self citations and citation by others, diachronous self citation rate, citing authors, citing institutions, highly cited papers and categories of citing documents, citing journals and impact factor. A Bradford plot constructed to determine the core-citing journals shows that the curve is a typical S shape which indicates subject maturity.
