Authorship Pattern of Marine Canobacteria Research in India: A Scientometric Analysis
The study examines MarineÂ Cyanobacteria Research in IndiaÂ as revealed by the scholarlyÂ publication indexed in AquaticÂ Science and Fisheries AbstractsÂ (ASFA) data base on CD/ROMÂ for a period of ten years fromÂ 2005to 2014. It was seen that theÂ analyses included researchÂ growth, author productivity,authorshippattern ,Â Geographical distribution of theÂ literature, citation analysis rank,Â globalÂ publicationsâ€™share,citationÂ impact, share of internationalÂ collaborative papers and majorÂ collaborative partner countries
and patterns of researchÂ communication in mostÂ productive journals. Most of the
researchers preferred to publishÂ their research results in 1869Â journal articles. The authorshipÂ trend shows that, out ofÂ total2212 research literaturesÂ published, 85% of them orÂ published under the joint authorÂ of publications in Marine
Cyanobacteria research output.Â It is observed that authorÂ productivity is not in agreementÂ with Lotka's law. This shows thatÂ team research is prevalent in the
area of Marine Cyanobacteria.Â It also analysess theÂ characteristics of most
productive institutions, authorsÂ and high-cited papers.
