Abstract: Citation analysis of 1824 citations from 202 articles published in Annals of Library Science & Documentation, Vol. 31 to 40, (1984-93) shows that journals are most cited form of communication amongst the library and information scientists and the source journal is the most cited publication. Bradford's Law of Scattering is testified with the journal citations and it was found that 23. 13% of total journals could meet 67% of the requirements. The most devoted core periodicals in library and information science (LIS) have been found out and listed according to productivity. The half life of LIS literature is found to be 8 and 12 years for journals and books respectively. The study reveals that library professionals most frequently refer to the journals in which they write.
