This paper presents a bibliometric analysis of research works in the subject category Law
published with the aliation of India in the Web of Science Core Collection. A total
of 529 published works by Indian authors from Indian law schools and institutions on
or relating to the subject of the law have appeared in law journals and other sources.
The works are indexed in the Core Collection for the years 1999–2019 and have been
cited 2,041 times over this 20-year period. To conduct the analysis of the published data
based on norms such as author-wise, country-wise and citation-wise gures, normative
bibliographic techniques were applied to attain the objectives. After a detailed discussion
of the analysis of the data, the research arrives at the conclusion that Indian authors have
fewer published works in the subject category Law in the Core Collection than two other
Asian countries, but that there has been a gradual increase in their number since 2011.
Keywords: bibliometric; higher education; Indian authors; law; citation references;
publications.
