The present paper explores the Scientometric analysis of the three reputed and highly circulated Indian Library and Information Science (LIS) journals during last five years i.e. from 2015 to 2019.Total 673 articles published in scope period are analysed by applying various parameters like year-wise distribution of articles, authorship pattern and degree of collaboration, relative growth rate and doubling time, Productivity trends with Lotka’s Law and other parameters of Bibliographic Analysis. The study revealed that the Degree of Collaboration was quite high i.e. 463 (0.69) in terms of collaborators contribution. The study revealed that value of the relative growth rates (RGR) has decreased from 2015 (0.67) to 2019 (0.19) in the span of five years. The doubling time (DT) value has found increased from 1.03 to 3.64 in the respective years.
