The recent SCImago Institutions Rankings (SIR) World Reports are used to obtain a quantitative and qualitative image of Romanian Research in the last decade. An accurate analysis of the results shows that a ranking based only on scientific output is misleading whereas two performance indicators (NI, %Q1) and an indicator related to international collaboration ( %IC) can offer a more exact picture of added value of research. IFA and UBB are on the first places in qualitative rankings whereas Romanian Academy, UB and UAIC are also higher-ranked institutions at national level in terms of scientific research. Also, in the same context, UPB, which is the leader for scientific output, has, however, low values for NI, %Q1, %IC.
