The number of scientific publications by Iranian academics has grown considerably in the last decade. In the current study, scientometric methods were used to analyse the scientific publications—journal articles and conference papers—of Iranian researchers in the management-operations and economics-business fields, indexed in the Web of Science, from 1990 to 2010. The aim of the study was to measure institutional collaboration, the quality of journals, and the role of highly productive authors in highly cited articles in the aforementioned fields. Results showed that the intra-institutional rate of collaboration was greater than interinstitutional or international collaboration. Results also indicated that more than half of Iranian journal articles in the fields of interest were published in high-quality journals. Finally, a comparison of highly cited papers and highly productive authors revealed that highly productive authors did not make significant contributions to the top articles of the fields.
