Hence, the present study aims to review the profile of researchers of the discipline of library and information science (LIS) across the USA, UK, and India, and study their research productions. The study will focus on PhD degree awarded in LIS between the year 2001 to 2010. The study aims to achieve some of the following objectives: evaluate their knowledge production which are based on their PhD research works, quantifying the research pattern, trends of publication, identify the most prolific authors and authorship pattern, and identify the degree of collaboration of researcher. This paper is a bibliometric study which can be used to conduct such analysis for interdisciplinary research.
