Abstract: The paper is an attempt to highlight the importance of adopting various metric to evaluate scholarship. Article level views and citations metric (Scopus & Google Citation) of Annals of Library and Information Studies were extracted from 2011 to 2015 to establish the relationship between them using Pearson correlation. Findings of the study indicate that there was a positive correlation between the number of views and Google Scholar (r = 0.22, p < 0.01) (1% significant), however, no correlation between views and Scopus (r=0.06, p< 0.01). However, the study shows that positive correlation in cumulative article views and citation, the top 10 viewed articles and citations do not complement each other, articles that have receives maximum views do not necessary result to citation except for one article.
