Universities are hub of research activities. Apart from universities, there are many institutions also which help in enriching the plethora of research. Research is being affected by numerous factors and one of the prominent factor affecting the output is the conflict or war or political instability. Research done in peaceful environment is clearly different from that done in the conflict period. The researchers are not able to give their best during the conflict period. They work harder and can give their best when peace exist. This results in not only the good quality research but also the output increases in terms of number of publications. The present study tries to understand the effect of conflict on the research done in University of Kashmir during conflict period from 1989-1999 and comparative peace period from 2000-2010 in Kashmir. Web of Science is used as data retrieval tool so that comprehensive study can be done. The study reveals that during the peace period from 2000-2010, there was a huge amount of literature published in comparison to conflict period from 1989-1999. The data compiled also indicate that University of Kashmir has more percentage in terms of collaborations made during peace period compared to the conflict period.
