Scientometric analysis of 829 articles published in the Indian Journal of physics during the year 2004-2008 are taken up to observe the distribution of contributions, authorship pattern, geographical distribution of contributions and the number of pages used in each volume. Results indicate that highest numbers of papers have been written by co- authors. The contributions in this journal from India are slightly more than those from the other countries. The growth and popularity of this journal is found to show an upward trend.


Key words: Scientometrics, distribution of contributions, geographical distribution, Indian journal of physics.
