Abstract: Present study is based on the references appended to the articles published in Indian Journal of Environmental Protection volumes. 14, 19 and 24 published in the years 1994, 1999 and 2004 respectively. Study highlights the authorship trend and collaborative research in environmental science during 1994, 1999 and 2004. The study found that team research is preferred in the field of environmental science rather than solo research. The degree of collaboration varies from year to year and is found to be 0.78 to 0.95. The overall degree of collaboration is calculated and found to be 0.85. The study also found that on an average 11.595 references are referred to by each article. Major contribution is made by universities (31.622%) followed by colleges (24.054%) and research institutions (23.784%). It is also observed that the proportion of single authored papers have decreased from 20.290% in the year 1994 to 4.762% in 2004.
