Author(s): Minaxi A P

Research Output would be the instrumental procedure and part of routine activity of the researcher. Hence the measurement Tool, Laws and Principles for research output have become crucial functions for the academic organization. Bibliometrics is the discipline where quantitative methods were employed to probe scientific communication process by measuring and analysing different aspects of written documents by various indicators. A research of “Alan Pritchard” (1969) by title “the applications of mathematical and statistical methods to books and other media” is illustrative. The study was conducted with specific objectives related to measures research contributions regards “ICT Application” and “Digital Common”. Entirety 727(100%) contributions from the respective three journals are analysed. It is noticeable that the highest research output in the LIS field of the selective journal The Electronic Library has contributed 322 articles (Out of 727), DESIDOC Journal of Library and Information Technology has 281 (Out of 727) while Science and Technology Libraries has 124 (Out of 727) research output observed from 2014 to 2018. It is traceable that the two selected source journals has similar periodicity is “Bimonthly” while one The Science and Technology Libraries has quarterly; it has obviously effected of the total research output, highest collaboration, authorship pattern, etc on the analysis of this study.
