The study highlights the authorship pattern and research collaboration in the area of Crystallography based on 45320 scholarly communications appeared in the Crystallography during 1989-2013. Study illustrates various significant aspects like types and trends of authorship, author productivity, degree of collaboration, collaborative index, Collaboration coefficient, Moderate Collaboration. Multiple author papers are more popular among Crystallography literature. There is a significant correlation found between number of authors and number of papers, further, the given data set is verified through Kolmogorov Simonov test. Finally it can be concluded that Crystallography literature does follow the Lotka’s law of author productivity and found that there is a Positive Co-relation in Crystallography literature.
