           case study of India and Bangladesh

    • Abstract: Title: Co-authorship and co-occurrences analysis using Bibliometrix R-package: a case study of India and Bangladesh
      Authors : Jalal, Samir Kumar : Research collaboration between India and Bangladesh based on research output of 1156 papers jointly produced by both countries were retrieved from Web of Science for the period of 1991 to 2017.The collaboration network on co-authorship and co-occurrences was build using BibliometrixR package. Top ten keywords have been plotted to show the subject trends in general. VOSviewer was used to build network maps to know the collaborative zones with respect to authors, subjects and keywords. The study shows that the major collaborations were in medical science followed by agriculture and biological sciences. The verification of Lotkas’s Law was made using lotka() function in Bibliometrix R package. The finding of the study shows that Lotka’s law is still valid for the co-authorship data at the international level.Page(s): 57-64

    • Abstract: Title: Information seeking trends among the Law course entrants in two Sri Lankan universities: a comparative study
      Authors : Wijetunge, Pradeepa; Alahakoon, Champa N.K. : This comparative study is an attempt to understand the pre-university library experiences of two groups of Law course entrants in two universities. The study concentrated on the use of the school library before entering the university, some social media and the communication preferences, and established that both groups have effectively used the school libraries. Yet, there are variations between the groups in using the other information sources such as websites, smart phones, select social media, etc. The study recommends offering a well-planned support programme covering the available resources and services, paying special attention to the use of e-resources, online catalogue, e-mail and social media for their academic purposes.Page(s): 65-70

      Authors : Verma, Sapna; Madhusudhan, Margam : A comparative altmetric study of highly cited publications on ‘digital library’ from India and China pertaining to the period 1989 to 2017 reveals that computer science discipline has more readership of digital library publications in China whereas social science disciplines has more readership in India. Indian articles on digital library received higher altmetric scores as compared to articles of Chinese origin, whereas the Chinese articles on digital libraries received more citations as compared to the Indian articles on the subject. The study also reveals that there is a low correlation between citations and altmetric scores.Page(s): 71-75
