Authors: B, Asha

Abstract: Analyses articles and citations in Demography India from 1972 to 2001. Identifies core areas of demographic studies, institution-wise contribution of articles and geographical area pertaining to the articles. Determines the trend-line and fiveyearly moving average of the year-wise distribution of collaboration coefficients for ascertaining the trends in the distribution of single and multi-authored articles. Obtains slight inclination of authors towards collaboration. Using regression analysis formulates Lotka's relationships and hence determines the values of constant K and index ± in the relationship. Finds that Lotka's relationship is valid for authors with more than three publications only. Determines some closer relationship than Lotka's by using regression ranking. Identifies most-cited journals, examines bibliographic forms of cited documents, average age of citations and rate of citation per article. The findings of this study are compared with the results of similar studies.
