Indian Fern Journal that is a half-yearly publication of Indian Fern Society, Chandigarh (India) is used as a source journal for conducting bibliometric studies on different aspects of its publication. It is continuously being published since 1984. However, its volume 33 (2016) to volume 37 (2020) are considered in the present study that is conducted for ascertaining authorship pattern, degree of collaboration and length of the paper with average range of citations per paper published in five consecutive issues of the Indian Fern Journal. Hope this study will be beneficial to explore hidden pattern of the authors who contribute their articles/research papers and other things for them, such as degree of collaboration etc.
