The Malaysian Journal of Library & Information Science (MJLIS) is an indexed journal of the Web of Science. Researchers from across the world are found to contribute articles and other communications to the same. It plays a crucial role in disseminating scholarly communications in the field of Library and Information Science. The present bibliometric study attempts to visualise the journal's data contents published during 2007-2020 using the bibliometrix R-package Biblioshiny tool, HistCite, and VOSviewer software. For the analysis, data has been extracted from the Web of Science Core Collection Database. Analysing the dynamics of the trends of publication pattern, citations received, authorship characteristics, etc., based on 282 document types available for the period, the findings of the study provide different clues about the most productive and influential authors, papers, countries, and affiliations of the research communities, keywords, etc. The study has enabled the establishment of bibliometric networks about keywords, authors, countries, institutions, cited references, and cited sources based on co-occurrence, co-authorship, and co-citation analysis, making the same visualised contents.
