Abstract

In this paper, an attempt has been made to investigate the pattern of authorship, type of collaborated research and the degree of collaboration in the field of Social Sciences. The data was collected from social science citation index of ISI Thomson Reuters, for the period of twelve years i.e. 2000-2011. Author publications have been divided into three block periods 2000-2003, 2004-2007, and 2008-2011. The Collaborative Index (CI) and Degree of Collaboration (DC) and Collaboration Coefficient (CC) have been calculated. These are increasing from one block to another indicating a progressive trend in collaborative research.
