Google Scholar (GS), a freely accessible database of scholarly papers along with its citations data, has an extensive coverage of Library and Information Science (LIS) literature. It is the only available global database for the citation analysis of Indian LIS journals. The present study is an attempt to highlight the authorship pattern and citation level of i10 cited research articles in DESIDOC Journal of Library and Information Technology (DJLIT) based on Google Scholar data. Descriptive and inferential statistical techniques were applied in the study. One hundred and eighty articles published between 1995–2016 were cited 10 or more times (i10 index) in Google Scholar. Based on Google Scholar, this study has established that citations of i10 cited papers are equally distributed in its different authorship patterns; there is no association between authorship pattern and level of citations. Further the study shows that there is an association between period of publication and level of citations.
