The study examines bibliographic data of 1442 and 1459 physics research publications published by the Department of Physics of Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and Institute of Physics (IOP), India respectively, indexed by the Web of Science database during 2015–2019. The findings indicate that the number of publications grew during the period under study in an inconsistent way. It was found that the physicists from IISc and IOP preferred to publish their research findings in journals published from the developed nations. Publications by authors from IOP were cited more than that of IISc. More scientists from IOP have published papers through international collaboration experimental groups as compared to IISc.
