Abstract: The present study is bibliometrics analysis of collaboration trends of the publications by Faculty of Natural Sciences at Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi in India during 1971-2007 in its six departments. The Faculty of Natural Science in Jamia Millia Islamia consists of six departments viz. Biosciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geography, Mathematics and Physics. It is clear from the study that authorship pattern is more towards multiple authorships, degree of collaboration is high and multi-authorship is prominent in the field of Natural Sciences in Jamia Millia Islamia. The total number of papers published in 37 years is 1257. The publications in the form of Journal articles and Conference papers only were taken into consideration for analysis. It is found that number of papers published in the year 1971 which is 1, i.e., 0.08% of the total papers rose to 136 in the year 2005 which is 136, i.e., 10.82% of the total papers. There are 231(18.38%) papers which were written by single authors and rest 1026 (81.62%) papers are contributed by two or more authors. Collaborative Index, Degree of Collaboration, Collaborative Coefficient, Modified Collaborative Coefficient were calculated from the data and the following mean values were found 2.38, 0.73, respectively. In total period of study of 37 years from 1971 to 2007 the average number of authors per paper is more than 2.98. It can be seen from the Collaborative pattern that collaboration is more prominent in Physics, Chemistry and less in Mathematics, Geography. This study strengthened the fact that collaborative research in different fields of sciences has proved fruitful and that scientists like to work in team and their scientific research get sprouts in the fertile field of group environment.
