Authors: Mittal, Rekha
Issue Date: Dec-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: The study attempts to trace the research trends in library and information science in India during the period Jan 1990 – June 2010 as reflected through scholarly journals. Co-word analysis is used to identify the core research areas by quantifying the frequency of occurrence and the analysis of co-occurrence of 4735 descriptors assigned to 1408 journal articles of Indian authors indexed in Library and Information Science Abstracts (LISA) database. The Kamada-Kawai algorithm is used for constructing the network of relations between descriptors and making spatial distribution of these. The result shows a research trend focusing on library practice, user services, cataloguing, user studies, university libraries, public libraries, information retrieval, library education, citation analysis, bibliometrics; and moving towards copyright, library technology, digital libraries, institutional repository, CD-ROM databases, and electronic periodicals. The findings indicate that open access, Web 2.0, World Wide Web, Internet, access to information, etc are some of the new areas of that LIS researchers are interested in.
