Abstract: An analysis of 369 items published in Mausam during 2003-2006 indicates that 72% items were papers, 23% letters to the editor, 4% report on “Weather in India” and the rest 1% as articles. Indian researchers belonging to India Meteorological Department contributed most of the items. Climatology, agricultural and environmental meteorology, synoptic meteorology, hydrometeorology, numerical weather forecasting and physical meteorology constituted about 56 % of the total output. Time lag between receipt and acceptance of the manuscript is about 11 months, while the time lag between acceptance and publication of the manuscript is about 9. Editorial board members belonged to domestic institutions. The references cited by the journal are mostly international like other journals in the field. However, majority of the citations are older than 10 years. Based on the pattern of citations the journal received in the international literature its impact factor for 2005 and 2006 is almost the same (0.19). However, of the 49 Indian journals indexed by SCI-E in 2005, 18 have impact factor less than or equal to Mausam.
