This research seminar aims to discuss about the recent research article on the LIS Scholarly Productivity in Bangladesh. Through engaging researchers and topics, we hope to spark dialogue and relationship across Bangladeshi LIS academic and professional’s community for a justifiable future.
Since the independence of Bangladesh in 1971, LIS Faculty members, practitioners and researchers have published widely in many leading LIS journals and conferences some of which are listed by WoS and SCOPUS. Publishing trends has shown positive growth during the last two decades. As per the Scimago journal and country rank (2019), there are only fifteen Bangladeshi scholarly journals are listed. Bangladesh’s two LIS journals, ‘The Eastern Librarian’ ‘Bangladesh Journal of Library and Information Science’, both journals are irregular and not indexed by Scopus, or listed in Scimago journal ranking. We, LIS faculties, researchers and practitioners in Bangladesh do not know the ratio of publication visibility in the leading global outlet.
