Abstract: This paper attempts to analyse the publication productivity of Anthony J. Leggett, the 2003 Nobel Prize winner in physics. His contributions peaked in 1987, 1994, and 1998 with 10 papers each. He had 194 publications during 1964 – 2004 in domains like Superfluid 3He (65), Foundations of Quantum Mechanics (36), Dissipative Quantum Systems (24), Atomic Alkali Gases (18), and Miscellaneous (51) which were analysed for authorship pattern with his 70 collaborators. Most active collaborators with Anthony J Leggett were: A. Garg with six papers and A. O. MCaldeira, D. M. Ginsberg, D. J. Vanharlingen , F. Sols, S. Takagi and D. A. Wollman with five papers each. His productivity coefficient was 0.60 which clearly indicates that his productivity increased after 50 percentile age. The highest degree of collaboration (1) for Anthony J. Leggett was found during 1964, 1971 and 1983. Journals have been the most preferred channel of communication, where as many as 139 papers out of 194 have been published. The core journals publishing his papers were: <i>Phys. Rev. Lett.</i> (42), <i>Phys. Rev.</i> B (9), <i>J. Low Temp.</i> <i>Phys.</i> (8), <i>Phys. Rev. A</i> (7), <i>Ann. Phys. </i>(6), <i>Foundations of physics </i>(6), <i>J. Phys.(5), Prog. Theor. Phys. </i>(5), and <i>Rev. Mod. Phys. (5).</i> Publication density was 3.02 and publication concentration was 3.59.
