Title: Dedication pages: A Study
Authors: Koley, Susanta
Sen, B K
Issue Date: Dec-2006
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Bibliometric studies with dedication pages are hard to come by. Hence, this study was taken up to find out types of dedicatees, dedication pattern, trend of dedication, chronological distribution of dedications, subject-wise distribution of dedications and reasons of dedications. Some of the findings are quite interesting. Parents top the list among dedicatees, followed by spouses, teachers, children, friends, students, and so on. It is also to be noted that some authors of religious books have dedicated their books to gods, goddesses and saints. The country, countrymen, martyrs and leaders have also figured in the dedication pages of some books penned by patriots. Some practitioners and teachers of medicine have dedicated their books to patients whom possibly they could not forget because of their untimely death or some other reason.
