Abstract:  Examines the applicability of Lotka’s Law as a general inverse power (2) and as an inverse square power relationship ( = 2) to the distribution of the research productivity in Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), India. Two datasets of the research papers (6076 and 17681) contributed by CSIR’s scientists during the period of 1988-1992 and 2004-2008 were collected from SCI-CD-ROM and Web of Science respectively. A K-S Test was applied to measure the degree of agreement between the distribution of the observed set of data against the inverse general power relationship and the theoretical value of =2. It was found that the inverse square law of Lotka did not conform as such.
