The present study reveals the publication pattern of the articles published during the period 1995 – 2009 of “Management Information Systems Quarterly” (MISQ) Journal. The study also encompasses the scientometrics sketch not only of 596 research papers during the period of study but also the various journal parameters like SJR (SCImago Journal Rank), SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper), total number of citations received by the journal in the year as well as percentage not cited (i.e. % of documents published in a year that have never been cited to date) etc. from the SCOPOUS database. Further, it analyzes various other bibliometrics angles such as: growth of literature, authorship patterns, degree of collaboration, geographical distribution of publications, distribution of article types by journal, and ranking pattern etc.
