Jyoti Sharma, Rupak Chakravarty

Abstract


The study aims to know the Preferred Communication Channels and Pattern of Collaboration of faculty members in the discipline of Library and Information Science in Punjab and Haryana. The study covered four State and Central Universities of Punjab and Haryana having department of Library and Information Science. Total research productivity is 570 publications of 19 faculty members. The null hypothesis “There is no significant variation amongst Journals, Books/Book Chapters and Conference Proceedings as preferred communication channels in the total research output of Punjab and Haryana” is rejected. The null hypothesis “Modified Collaborative Coefficient (MCC) has no variation during the publication year of LIS faculty members of select universities of Punjab and Haryana i.e. PUP, KUK and MDU “is accepted in PUP, KUK and MDU whereas GNDU has p value which is less than 0.05, which means null hypothesis “Modified Collaborative Coefficient (MCC) has no variation during the publication year of LIS faculty members of select universities of Punjab and Haryana i.e. GNDU” is rejected.
