English abstract

This study is an attempt to capture the dynamics of the disability and library services field. The bibliographic data of journal articles published between 1991 and 2021 were collected from the Web of Science (WoS) database and analysed to find out the trends of literature growth, core journals, institutes from where most of the literature are being published, prominent keywords and so on. The resultant data clearly show that, there is a significant growth of publications in the above domain since the year 2000. The study also unfolds the core journals, most cited articles, top productive authors, countries, and institutions engaged in research in this domain. The study has further shown that, the research trends indicate that, optimal research have been carried out in this domain are of developed countries while the developing countries are lagging behind in this regard, there by making a meaningful introspection imminent.
