Title: Library and information science research in India: A bibliometric study
Authors: Patra, Swapan Kumar
Chand, Prakash
Issue Date: Dec-2006
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: The paper presents a bibliometric study of library and information science research literature emanating from India based on the data abstracted in Library and Information Science Abstracts (LISA). Standard bibliometric techniques are employed to analyse the collected data and accordingly get indicators. Bradford’s law of scattering is used to identify core journals of library and information science wherein Indian authors publish their research output. To understand the productivity pattern of authors, Lotka’s Law has been applied. The identified core journals are mostly published from India. Indian authors’ contribution in‘ international journals is very low. A list of authors who have published 10 and more papers during 1967-2004 is drawn and presented. Such authors are 37 (1.35%) in number and authors with single publication have major share (74.63%). The author’s productivity pattern is in conformity to Lotka’s law.
