English abstract

The present study focuses on the various facets of authorship patterns in data science during 2001-2018 and other components using different bibliometric parameters. The annual growth rate of articles, authorship pattern, author productivity rate, degree of collaboration, author collaboration network visualization, and finally the application of Lotka’s law are the major thrust of this research. The authors mentioned that the data set derived from this research largely follows Lotaka’s law of author productivity.
