Scientometric studies are enduring studies that portray an organized visual of messy data. The current study is a scientometric study based on secondary data sets included in Scopus. A corpus of 311 documents published in the journal Annals of Library and Information Studies (ALIS) from 2011 to 2020 was the population of the study. The study focused on several characteristics of the journal, including article distribution, average author per document, average document per year, authorship productivity, collaboration index, country-wise distribution of documents and citation analysis. The study retrieved the most prolific author contributing to this journal with 19 articles. The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and the University of Delhi were the top literary contributors to the ALIS journal. The University of Kerala got the most citations per document (6.833). The maximum count of author keywords (Scientometrics) used in the journal from 2011 to 2020 was 135.
