Society's growth and progress are totally dependent on ongoing research. Citation analysis is one of the most common research methodologies used to assess the quality of research in any area of a topic. A bibliometric study would be helpful to all LIS members. To fulfil the study's goals, citation analysis techniques were utilized. The information was gathered from the Shodhganga repository, which is an online database of Indian theses. The Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology received the most citations. According to the research, it was ranked first out of 1929 national and worldwide referenced publications, while just seven Indian journals were in the top twenty most cited journals. The current research also suggests that in the LIS field, there is a need to promote collaborative research and improve the quality of articles published in Indian research journals and that Indian academics should pay more attention to peer-reviewed journals for publication so that their research is visible to readers.
