Abstract

The paper presents a brief bibliometric analysis of the journals in Library and Information Sciences categories in India. Being the country that has the most indexed journals in the Asiatic region. There are now three journals indexed by Scopus data base. This case study focuses on the oldest journal in Scopus, with title “Annals of library and Information Studies” (ALIS). This study pursues two main objectives. First, to depict the main characteristics of the papers published by the ALIS Journal during 2011-2017 years. Second, the obtained data are compared to the last bibliometric work published about ALIS Journal during the period 2002 to 2010. This comparison points to remarkable shifts in Library and Information Studies research, especially in the institutional and national authorship.
The results showed that most articles (43,45%) were signed by two authors. The study also reveals that most of the contributions are from India with 68,87% and the rest 31,13% from foreign sources. Compared to data from 2002-2012 it can be observed that contributions from India are declining and the foreign contribution are growing. It is also remarkable the presence of five foreign centers among the top ten most prolific institutions during the years 2011-2017.
