Abstract: The paper highlights the publication productivity of Rabindranath Tagore, the Nobel Laureate poet of India. He has published 199 Bengali books during 1878-1941 and 36 titles were published posthumously making it 235 Bengali books to his credit. In his seventies (the last decade of his life), when he ventured into the world of painting, surprisingly his literary productivity increased considerably instead of going down. He published as many as 55 books apart from producing 2000+ paintings. Tagore’s productivity encompassed all branches of literature, i.e. poems, dramas, letters, novels, essays, songs, travelogues, comedies, short stories, addresses, textbooks and autobiography. His productivity coefficient for Bengali books is 0.84 which indicates that he had a steady publication record throughout his literary career. He has published 91 out of 95 short stories in 16 communication channels. Publication density of short stories is 5.69, publication concentration is 12.5 and productivity coefficient for short stories stands at 0.32.
