Abstract

The popular quoted statement of Lotka’s law is attempted to apply in the domain of DESIDOC Journal of Library & Information Technology. The authors contributed their views in the journal published since its first volume up to its 38th volume is considered in the study. The attempt has been made to test the mathematical formula i.e. a(n) = a(1)/n2 with the dataset developed during the study. Moreover, most productive authors who have contributed their views in the DESIDOC Journal of Library & Information Technology are also identified.
