ABSTRACT: - The present paper, while studying the importance of DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) covers free, full text, quality controlled scientific and scholarly journals, aiming to cover all subjects and languages.

As of September 2014, this directory contains 9,996 journals and 1,730,422 Articles. DOAJ aims to be the one stop shop for users of open access journals.

80 Open Access Journals on Library and Information Science were studied.

KEY WORDS – Bibliometric, Library and Information Science, E- journals, Online Journals, DOAJ, Open Access, Publication analysis.

INTRODUCTION:

Mapping is to represent all adjacent areas or knowledge in a helpful order showing the logical subordination and co-ordination of classes.

It helps people to think more effectively as a group without losing individuality helps groups manages the complexity of their ideas without

trivializing losing detail. Mapping is a technique first used by J. D. Bernal and refined by Eugene Garfield. Mapping is the methodology of developing knowledgebase for a given field.

Mapping of knowledge provides an overview of the distribution of knowledge at different levels e.g. at the level of nations, states, cities/towns, institutions, journals disciplines, sub disciplines

etc. The work on maps of knowledge depends on the field considered for mapping knowledge such as papers published in professional journals and cross-citations for every such paper. In these maps the items are positioned in relation to each others in such a way that those topics that are cognitively related to each other are positioned in each other’s vicinity, and those not or hardly related, are distant from each other. Generally science maps are constructed by the co- occurrence information principle, i.e. the more two elements occur together in one and the same paper, the sooner they will be identified as being closely related. Different elements of a bibliographic record may be used to generate a map structure. Each element reveals a specific structure, unique in a sense, but always related to the structures based on other elements.

MAPPING

Mapping is a structured process, focused on a topic or construct of interest, involving input from one or more participants that produces an interpretable pictorial view (Concept map) of their ideas concepts and how these are interrelated.

OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

The objectives of the present study are to find the following-

To examine the distribution of Journals according to periodicity.

To find out distribution of Journals based on publishing body.

To identify the distribution of Journals based on document type.

To analyze the distribution of Journals based on format.

SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY

The present study is limited to “DOAJ’

Directory of Open Access Journals Open source Journals Directory. A total Number of 80 Journals were identified in the directory form the discipline of Library and Information Science which will be undertaken for the further study.

METHODOLOGY

The list of Journals published in the field of Library and Information Science will be collected from the “DOAJ” Directory of Open Access Journals Open source Journals Directory.

The required data for the study will be collected from the “DOAJ” Directory of Open Access Journals Open source Journals Directory with adequate details such as name of Journals, year of publication, place of publication, frequency etc.

REVIEW OF LITERATURE

S. Hinze and H. Grupp. (1996)15 Paper presented at the 4th International Conference on Science and Technology Indicatior, Antwerp, Belgium, 5-5 Oct-1995. In this article the author

(3)

Analyzes activities in new biotechnology in food science and technology using bibliometric methods. Uses multidimensional scaling to visualize the structure of the field as represented by scientific literature and patent applications.

For the science as well as for the technology side increasing activities in the field where found. The specialization analysis shows above average specialization on the science and the technology side in the EU member countries (except for Germany) as well as in the USA.

Chand, Prakash and Singh, Dharmendra Sengar (2000),14 in their article “A bibliometric Study of Solar Energy Research in India”

introduce bibliometric analysis of the solar energy research collected from ISA, INPAT, INSPEC, SCI database and also scanned annual report of other Indian R&D organization covering 1992 – 97 period for the purpose. It gives quantitative and qualitative assessment of R&D output contributed by the scientist and organization and presents rank order of the institutions which have made their contribution in the discipline of solar energy research. Analysis also indicates thrust areas of solar energy research.

(Khaparde, 2011) Abstract Knowledge is the totality of ideas, conserved through human civilization and knowledge management (KM) is a process, which converts the internal and external information of the organization into actionable knowledge. KM has emerged as a key concern of

organizations. Better management of knowledge within the organization leads to improved innovation and competitive advantage.

Developing an effective KM system requires a well-balanced approach.

(Khaparde & Pawar, 2013) studied the authorship pattern and author’s collaborative research in Information Technology with a sample of 17917 articles collect from LISA during 2000- 2009.The average number of authors per article is 1.80. In the study the degree of collaboration (C) during the overall 10 years (2000-2009) is 0.71 but the year wise degree of collaboration is almost same in all the years of mean value 0.49.

According to 10 years of period, the multi- authorship articles are higher and predominant on single authorship. The study found that the researches in Information Technology are keep toward team research or group research rather than solo research.

(Khaparde, 2013)The paper studied the Bibliometric Analysis of Research Publication of Department of Chemistry, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, from 1975 to 2012. It analyzed all the 774research publications from the 144 journals. It examines year- wise distribution of papers, authorship pattern, journal in which author publish, it revealed that the number of publications has increased consistently from the year 1975 to the year 2012. 25% of the total publications have been made in 2009, 2010,

(4)

and 2011. And the majority of the publications are made with 4 authors. And also the majority of the research paper published in journal of heterocyclic chemistry.

(Ambhore & Khaparde ,2014) they analysed The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) lists open access scientific and scholarly journals, that meet high quality standards by exercising peer-review or editorial quality control and are free to all from the time of publication based on the Budapest open access initiative. Total 31 free online journals were accessed through DOAJ and analyze based on country, language, subject headings, keywords, their accessibility and availability of archives of online journal in Agricultural Biology .

(Ambhore & Khaparde, 2015) conducted a study on an evaluation of planetary science repositories in DOAR. The paper provides detailed picture of repositories under Earth and Planetary Science (EP Sci.) category available in Directory of Open Access Repositories (DOAR).

In this study EP SCI. repositories EP SCI. ted in Directory of Open Access Repositories (DOAR) are analyzed for number of items archived so far, software used, type of material archived in these repositories etc. Out of 75 repositories Earth and Planetary Science in DOAR. The study discloses the leading countries with repositories providing EP SCI. content and also highly used software used in these repositories.

Bidyarthi Dutta et.al.12 (2005), The article found on Rank Vs Number of articles distribution pattern of a journal system has been investigated from the viewpoint of Bose-Einsten statistics assuming a subject as equivalent to a phase space, a specific or micro subjects as equivalent to a phase cell and corresponding journals as the Bose – Einstein Particles. In this article found that scientific papers in journals is an interesting phenomenon in scientometrics. In this paper the author express about derivd a theoretical expression for the distribution of articles in journals based on Bose-Einsten statistics and we have derived Booke’s simplified equations.

Rekha Mittal7 (2005)Found the article “citation mapping of published literature on embelia ribes”

In these article authors are discussed about the various mapping module like Mapping, Citation Mapping, Single Mapping and Multiple Mapping.

The article use useful for my study about the meaning of mapping and various mapping techniques available.

Ajay T. Agashe et.al9 (2010) In a study they observed that united states is in 1st rank in publishing 10 e-journals followed by Brazil English is the most common language. On Business and management DOAJ is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals.

Onexy Quintana‑‑‑‑Martinez5 (2014) found an article about the “Mapping the invisible colleges of innovation management field during the period from 1956 through 2012” A set of 387 articles was retrieved from the Social Science Citation Index corresponding to the period from 1956 to 2012, then by using Bibliometrics a classification of the corresponding research community according to production and impact was made, and were determined the invisible colleges. These article inspire me to do the present study.

Nirmal Singh11 (2014) In this paper the study found on DOAJ Open Access Journals contributing over from the year 2000 to 2011 ten years study. They cover the 17 subjects in the

study and SAARC countries i.e. 7 this study also gives idea for my present study.

Ajitabh Dash8 (2015) performed a survey on banks of India with regard to customer expectations and perceptions in relation to services quality. The study also efforts managerial implications and scope for further research.

Pradeep Kumar Misra,10 (2015) tried to find out the open – access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions; they found 27 Open Access Journals as freely available on websites in all subjects which is available free.
