Two of the measures frequently used to assess research performance are to estimate the number of publications appearing in Science Citation Index (SCI) Journals, as these are considered to be the best journals, and to estimate the total citations received by papers published.13; This report is presented in two parts.13; In Part I, the list of publications appearing in SCI journals during 1992-2002 is presented. In the last 11 years (1992-2002), 78 SCI publications were registered (according to the Web of Science). The scientific productivity works out to an average of 0.58 SCI publications/scientist/year in the eleven year period from 1992-2002. This is better than the CSIR ave rage for 2001 (= 0.34). This figure of 0.58 for C-MMACS indicates that C-MMACS is one of the top ten labs of the CSIR if this index is used. Also, in recent years, C-MMACS is able to average about 9 SCI items a year.13; In Part II, the citations received by papers published by C-MMACS since 1992 is used as an indicator of the quality of C-MMACSx2019; scientific output. A search using the Web of Science was able to bring out the list of papers from C-MMACS which have been listed in ISI's Web of Science. This search records only 75 items during this period. The citation record has not been very good. 39 papers have not received any citation; i.e. half of our SCI papers remain uncited. The 4 papers which have been most highly cited have a foreign co-author and/or an NIO connection and this could explain its higher impact. A total of 166 citations for 75 papers over the last 11 years is only reasonably good going. This again would probably be the performance of an average lab in the CSIR.
