Abstract: Indian library and information science (LIS) journals are not indexed in Web of Science (WoS) database and lately ScopusĀ® database of Elsevier B.V. has indexed three Indian LIS journals. Hence, Google Scholar (GS) is the only available global database for the citation analysis of Indian LIS journals. Based on GS, this study has traced the citation and authorship patterns of selected LIS journals. Although, GS covers wide spectrum of scholarly literature worldwide, this study found that Indian LIS journals have low visibility even in GS database. In terms of citations, multiple-authored articles generally got more citations than the single-authored articles. This study suggests LIS researchers to increase collaborations for better visibility of their research.
