All articles were classified under 22 subjects using non-parametric method. The study found a sharp positive growth in research articles over the period while a negative growth has been observed in non-research articles only. Most of the research articles were devoted to Bibliometric Study, Citation Studies, Research Output, Collaboration Analysis, while the major topic for non-research articles were Bibliometric study, patent analysis, statistics and research assessment over the period.
