This paper attempts to highlight the growth and development of Spintronics publication based on Web of Science database during the period 2000-2014. A total of 6195 publications were published on spintronics, which received 134,467 citations. The average number of publications per year was 413 and the average number of citations per publication was 21.71. The publications peaked in 2014 with 874 publications, whereas the highest number of citations 16,696 was received in 2005. The highest number of publications was from USA with 1506 (24.31%) publications and 64.479 (47.95%) citations followed by China with 1.425 (23%) publications, 16.264 (12.10%) citations and Germany with 759 (12.25%) publications, 17,585 (13.08%) citations. USA and European scientists have been playing an important role on spintronics related research followed by Asian scientists. The average value of collaboration coefficient for spintronics is 0.65. Physics accounts the largest share of 5,023 (81.08%) publications from the total worldwide output on spintronics, which received 96,388 (71.68%) citations and 19.19 citations per publication followed by Astronomy and astrophysics with 1,664 (26.86%) publications with 33,867 (25.19%) citations and 20.35 citations per publication respectively.
