Dear All,

It has been a tremendous research publications journey for CIIT, starting with just 172 publications in 2005-06. Along the way we became the first university in Pakistan to cross the 1000 impact factor journal publications in a calendar year in the year 2015 logging 1263 papers. Then in the year 2016 we became the first university to cross the 1500 mark ending with 1574 impact factor journal publications.

With the grace of Allah SWT in the year 2017 we have now become the first University in Pakistan to cross the psychological barrier of 2000 impact factor journal publications, we are currently at 2029 publications including only articles, reviews and research letters.

Congratulations to all the hardworking faculty members who have excelled in their research and are also showing the way to everyone that it can be done and that we are the best in research in Pakistan.

Best wishes,

Prof. Dr. Raheel Qamar
