Article excerpt


The word ''bibliometrics'' constitutes one of the major thrust areas of research in the field of library and information science. It has quantitative analysis and statistics to describe the patterns of publications within a given field or body of literature. The term statistical bibliography was first employed by E.W. Hulme in 1923 refered the application of quantitative techniques of libraries. The word bibliometrics appeared in print in 1969 in Alan Pitchard's article statistical bibliography or bibliometrics in the December issue of the Journal of Documentation. It flourished in early 20th century with the works of Lotka, Bradford and Zipf who observed pattern distribution in word frequency, author and journal productivity. Bibliometric methods have been used in Eastern Europe countries to monitor science and scientists. The field of bibliometrics has produced major information scientists such as B.C. Brookers and H. Egghe. Bibliometrics refers to research methodology employed in library and information sciences, which has quantitative analysis and statistics methods to describe distribution patterns of articles with a given topic (Almind and Ingwersen, 1997), field (Campanario et. al., 2006), institute (Moed et. al., 1985) or country (Schubert et al., 1989). These methods have been used to investigate research trends of specific fields recently (Vergidis et. al.,2005; Falagas et. al., 2006; Kumari, 2006)

A bibliometric study of a journal is very essential to evaluate the journal and find out year wise distribution of papers, authorship pattern, citation pattern, length of papers, institution at distribution of papers etc. In 1969 Prichard first coined the term bibliometrics. There are various bibliometric studies has been made in a single journal time to time. Single journals bibliometric studies helps to know the research trends of a particular field of research i.e. year wise distribution of contributions, authorship patter and the trends of research collaboration, subject wise distribution of contribution, rank journals etc.
