Abstract: Bibliometric techniques were applied to analyze the authorship trend in the “Clay Research” during the period of 2007-2016. A total of 83 articles and 303 authors in the journal were examined by research article contributions by year and issue, authorship patterns by year and volume, authorship patterns, author’s productivity, most prolific authors, ranking by authors, contribution by institutions, authorship by country and degree of author collaboration. The average number of authors per paper is 3.650 and the average productivity per author is 0.273. The average degree of author collaboration is 0.891 during the period under study. The majority 294(97.029%) of the papers have been written in joint authorship.
