Abstract:A bibliometric analysis of 1,456 articles appearing in Indian Library and Information Science journals between 1975 and 1985 revealed that the average rate of citations per article in the field was quite low. Books and journals were identified as the major categories of documents referred to in these articles and both were positively related. It is concluded that the increase in journal citations and rate of citations between 1975 and 1985 indicates that Indian Library and Information Science journals are now publishing a higher number of research-oriented articles in comparison with earlier years.
