Integrated Master-Doctor program for excellent undergraduate student (Pendidikan Magister Menuju Doktor untuk Sarjana Unggul hereafter PMDSU) is a government program in the effort to increase the number of doctors and the number of international publications for doctoral supervisors in Indonesia. The program has been running since 2013 and has received students in 4 batches until 2018. Based on the year of entry, PMDSU batch I should have completed the study and PMDSU batch II has entered its final year. From that endeavour, this paper describes the achievements of PMDSU student and supervisor's publications. The hypothesis raised is the number of publications and supervisor's h-index influences the number of joint scientific publications between students and supervisor for batch I and II. PMDSU students and supervisors batch I and batch II are spread across 12 educational institutions in Indonesia. The findings show that the highest number of student's publication is 17 articles. The level of participation of PMDSU students in scientific articles reaches 60% of 323 registered students. Based on student participation, an increase in the number of supervisor's scientific articles was influenced weakly by the participation of PMDSU students. At the other hand, the supervisor's h-index is also very weak in influencing the number of publications published by PMDSU students. Based on the results obtained, student's participation can slightly increase the number of supervisor scientific articles, and the supervisor's h-index has no relation to the number of publications published by PMDSU students.
