Abstract
Objective: To present bibliometric analysis of the articles published in Rawal Medical Journal (RMJ) from 2008 to 2019.
Methodology: We used the Scopus database, during the months of August and September, 2020, for the retrieval and analysis of RMJ publications. We downloaded the retrieved dataset in the Comma Separated Values (CSV) format and transferred the file to a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet for analysis. We also compared the citations of top 10 most cited RMJ publications in the Scopus to the Google Scholar citations.
Results: A total of 1,487 articles were found, published in 12 volumes and 42 issues, with an average of 3.91 pages per document. The articles published in RMJ received 1,003 citations in the Scopus database with an impact of 0.67 citations per article. The Shifa International Hospital, Islamabad was the most contributing organization with 82 publications and Ashfaq Ahmed was the most contributing author with 21 publications. The authors, outside Pakistan, belonged to 31 countries and Jordan was ranked first with 119 publications.
Conclusion: A promising growth in the number of publications in RMJ is observed during last 12 years. However, there is a dire need to encourage authors to write on innovative ideas in collaboration with international researchers to enhance the citation impact of articles published in the journal.

Key words: Bibliometric analysis, bibliometrics, serial publications, biomedical research, Rawal Medical Journal.
