English abstract

The study is based on 781 citations appended to 43 research articles pertaining to January to June 2000 issues of volume 109 of Indian Journal of Medical Research. The authorship pattern of the citations shows that more than 15 per cent contributions are single-authored and about 85 per cent are the result of teamwork. The team size of this field is bigger than those in the fields of chemistry and physics. Single-authored articles amount to 15.52 per cent of the total citations and about 28 per cent resulted through the collaboration of five or more authors. Of the citations 88.73 per cent pertain to journal articles. Of the citing articles 38 contributed by Indian authors, 3 by foreign authors and 2 jointly by Indian and foreign authors. Of the total citations 9.48 per cent are author self-citations and 7.3 per cent are journal self-citations.
