Abstract Scientific Publishing is one of the fastest growing sub-sectors of the media industry. Science, technology and medicine (STM) market is a stable and reliable field for long-term investments. Over the last few years it is evident that publication of STM journals is predominantly controlled by a few commercial publishers of USA and European Unions. With the acquisition of publications of learned societies and universities by a small number of large commercial publishers, very few STM journals published by learned societies of third world countries survived. One of the bright examples is Indian Journal of Physics.The present study aims to divulge the pattern of scholarly communication of Indian Journal of Physics from 2007 to 2012 to measure the coverage and quality of contribution of this journal towards physics literature. Beside the journal itself mainly the Web of Science (WoS) online and Scopus Database online were used to collect the initial data. The study analyze the concept like chronological distribution of citation, distribution of affiliating institution, geographical distribution of contributors, description of subjects, ranking of cited journals and is concluded with a discussion of findings.
