English abstract

The study is a scientometric analysis of the magnitude of contributions of Prof. K. C. Panda, an eminent information scientist and academician of LIS. The paper highlights his 130 publications (120 articles and 10 books) during 1982-2011. The analysis of his 120 articles reveals that he has contributed 20 single papers and co-authored 80 papers with 45 collaborators that appeared 115 times yielding a greater collaboration coefficient of 0.79 which indicates his versatility of promoting research from the collaborative front. On an average, he has contributed 4 to 5 papers in a year during the stated period. Prof Panda is found to have contributed maximum (06) articles to Annals of Library and Information Studies.
