A selective review of bibliometric studies on Indian physics and astronomy research output

Das, Amit Kumar; Das, Gopinath ; Dutta, Bidyarthi


This paper presents a review of 159 bibliometric studies on Indian physics and astronomy research output. The distribution of the 159 papers from1964 to 2020, contributing authors and specific subject domains are analysed. It is found that current research topics of physics and astronomy are hardly selected for the bibliometric study. A few papers incorporate currently relevant aspects of bibliometric analysis to carry out the studies. Both facets, i.e., bibliometrics and physics & astronomy as tool and subject respectively, need to be focussed upon as per the requirement and relevance.
