Scientometrics and social network analysis (SNA) measures were used to analyze the international scientific collaboration (ISC) of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for a period of 10 years (2009-2018). The dataset consists of 19,622 records retrieved from the Scopus database. The mean degree of collaboration 0.95 implied that researchers of AIIMS tend to collaborate domestically (80.29%) and internationally (14.67%). The data exhibits a hyper authorship pattern, and a medium-size research team consists of 4 to 10 authors who contributed a maximum of 62.08% (12,182) publications. 71.97% of research findings are scattered in journal articles. The most preferred journals published 58.55% of medical literature. An undirected collaboration network is constructed in Pajek to study the ISC of AIIMS during the period 2009-2018 which consists of 179 vertices (Vn) and 11,938 edges. The degree centrality (Dc) identified that the United States of America (Dc - 54; CC - 0.99) and United Kingdom (Dc - 41; 0.98) are the most collaborative countries in the whole network as well as the most influential countries. The Louvain community detection method is used to detect influential research groups of AIIMS. The temporal evolution of ISC of AIIMS studied through scientometrics and SNA measures shed light on the structure and properties of ISC networks of AIIMS. It revealed that AIIMS, India has taken keen steps to enrich the quality of research by extending and encouraging the collaboration between institutions and industries at the international level.
