This study investigated six engineering scholarly journals and focused on scientific collaboration pattern, coefficient collaboration, Iranian international collaboration, and citation analysis. Findings showed that Iranian researchers authored 75.4% of articles themselves and 24.6% of articles with contribution of researchers from 25 countries worldwide. 367 articles that contributed by 1052 authors were studied. On average three researchers collaborated per article. Out of 1052 contributors, 814 affiliated to Iranian universities and 238 writers belonged to other countries. The results showed Indian researchers were more active than others were. Ranking universities in terms of numbers of articles showed that Iran University of Science and Technology obtained the first place. Coefficient collaboration disclosed the fact that there was a high tendency towards international collaboration e.g. the coefficient collaboration of Iranian Journal of Biotechnology was 0.668. In general, the findings would be helpful for journal’s editorial boards in engineering fields to improve their policies.
