English abstract

Garfield stated that review articles often serve as surrogates for earlier literature, thus avoiding extensive bibliographies. The present study has focused on the review articles written by researchers in India and included in Science Citation Index during the period 2000-2005. The study has aimed at analysing chronological growth of these review articles; authorship pattern and author productivity; authors’ affiliations and collaborations; journals publishing review articles; subject contents of the review articles; keywords associated with the review articles; and synchronous references in the review articles.
