A Scientometric Portrait of Professor M. P. Satija
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
N. K. Swain
1. Introduction
To what follows the authors speaks about scientometric study of publications of Prof.
M.P. Satija. Prof. Satija, the name is nearly synonymous with GN! "Guru Nanak e#
!ni#ersity$ amon% the &'S "&ibrary and 'nformation Science$ professionals in 'ndia.
Prof. M. P. Satija, the blue(eyed teacher has taken the name of GN! in %eneral and &'S
profession in particular to such a hei%ht that only le%ends can do this. )e is outstandin%
amon% *rd %eneration of &'S teachers after S. +. +an%anathan and ,rishan ,umar by
#irtue of his persuasi#e writin%s.
)ere publications are analysed by year, domain, collaboration trend, citation pattern of
his writin%s, channels of communication used alon% with other important features of his
publication style. As ,ademani, ,umbar and Surwase opine, -the result indicate that
temporal #ariations of his producti#ity to be a role model for the youn%er %eneration to
follow, " ,ademani, ,umbar and Surwase .//0$. Till the compilation of this study he has
*10 publications to his credit in #arious key areas of library and information science.
The study is structurally different from other bio%raphical or biobiblio%raphical pattern as
it takes the readers to see the trend in writin% patterns which has been calculated
scientifically. This type of study is normally made under the caption of -bibliometric2 or
-scientometric2. So the author chooses to use the later one. There is a reason to belie#e in
studies of this nature. 'n normal course studies are conducted on the Nobel laureates,
foundin% fathers of specialised field of study, etc. Sometimes the credit and authenticity
lies in citin% the materials written by those scholars.

The specialised writin%s of these scholars further associate them in specialised domains.
As in the concludin% part of the studies this author remarks Prof. M. P. Satija as a
+an%anathan scholar. 5urther these types of studies are branded in a different caption, if
we ha#e a cursory look into the literature. Some e#idences are found -biobibliometric
term was used first time by S. ,. Sen and S. ,.Gan "Sen and Gan$. 5urther there are
numerous studies conducted by 6.S. ,adamani, 7.&.,alyani, A himan, M.M An%adi ,
6.,. Sen. These e8amples add authenticity to this study.
Many a times it is obser#ed that these studies are carried out as a token of lo#e for the
scholar chosen for study. As Sonwane and 7aishna# opine in one of their similar work
-as a token of respect to the renowned information professional who is acclaimed as an
educationist par e8cellence, information technolo%ists 9in the field of library and
information Science. "Sonwane and 7aisna# .//0 p.:/$. ;ndorsin% the abo#e #iew, the
author herewith shows a token of affection for a scholar who has de#oted his entire life
for the concern of &'S profession.
Personal Account
Philosophers are of the opinion that bio%raphy of scholars should be read and tau%ht as
learners %et chance to learn and %et moti#ated from it. )ence the author pro#ides a brief
bio%raphy of Prof. M.P. Satija. As per the school certificate he was born on the 1
th
of May
<=10 at San%rur. San%rur is a city a district town of the 'ndian state of Punjab. )is parents
Smt. +ama e#i and Sri +am >handra mi%rated from Multan "now in Pakistan$ ?hen
en@uired about his childhood and schoolin% days he honestly says, -my father was a
lowly paid police man, but he was literate and always wanted @uality in my life. )e
encoura%ed me for schoolin%. )e was strict with my schoolin%. )e would hardly allow
me to take a casual lea#e from school. This childhood habit continued in adult official
life. The schoolin% of children was not a priority in a community stru%%lin% for
settlement and security of bein% uprooted. ' was modestly %ood at studies and passed
hi%her secondary <=4: by standin% first in the school and the city "Satija .//0$.2

Prof. Satija %ot education, especially schoolin% in that period in which hardly any schools
were there. )e passed his senior
secondary in the year <=4:.And %raduated in the year <=A/ from Punjabi !ni#ersity,
Patiala, at the a%e of .. with mathematics, physics, and chemistry , the royal combination
in modern sense. Bust after his studies he was en%a%ed in some petty jobs for pocket
money and e#entually landed at the &'S profession. To @uote M. P. Satija in his words
-by doin% odd jobs intermittently "in between$ in <=A<, ' passed 6. &ib. '. Sc. from
Punjabi !ni#ersity, Patiala campus. And was awarded %old medal for standin% first in the
!ni#ersity "Satija .//0$.2 )e was the first %old medalist in &'S from the same uni#ersity.
Bust after basic education of &'S he worked for a year before %ettin% into Guru Nanak
e# !ni#ersity as &ibrary Assistant "&A$ in the month of 5ebruary <=A.. And he stayed
here with GN! for %ood. As the days passed on he de#eloped his skill and professional
proficiency, which shifted him to community of the teachers as a lecturer in the year
<=01. Si8 years after, in <==< he was promoted as reader and joined as a professor after 0
years in the year <===.The dates and the work place, GN! shows that he ne#er mo#ed
out of GN! Amritsar for his basic bread and butter. Thou%h in <==0 he was selected as
Professor and )ead, epartment of &ibrary Science of Sa%ar !ni#ersity "now r )ari
Sin%h Gaur !ni#ersity, Sa%ar$ but he did not mo#e there.
urin% his lon% career he met some %ood people in the profession and learnt many thin%s
from there li#es and writin%s. Answerin% to the authors @uery about +an%anathan, he
says, -' ne#er met +an%anathan, but was always impressed by his inno#ati#e monumental
contribution and his faith in the power of libraries "Satija .//0$.2 Truly a reader can
endorse his words by lookin% statistically at the contribution of Prof. Satija on the area
C+an%anathan studiesD. )e wished he could meet +an%anathan and his obsession
diminished as +an%anathan passed away the year he joined the profession.
Amon% other writers whom he woos are Bese )auk Shera, .B. 5oskett, Back Mills, 6.'.
Palmer and Bohn P. >omaromi. Michael >omaromi de#eloped his association with Prof.
Satija as a co(author in many weitin%s. 'n 'ndia the writin%s of Girija ,umar lured his

Amon% other professional acti#ities, publications in learned journals, writin% book
re#iews, conductin% seminars and workshops, %i#in% e8tended lectures in 'ndia and
abroad are prominent. )is writin%s especially on knowled%e or%anisation and its sub(
fields e.%., classification, catalo%uin%, subject headin%s and inde8in% has %reat impact
factors which can be seen in some of the tables pro#ided in this paper. &audin% his role
for the profession many scholars ha#e #arieties of hi%h opinions. ue to space constraints
the author is unable to pro#ide the e8hausti#e list. A sample representati#e obser#ation of
Boseph Miller throu%h email is worth citin%, -' ha#e ne#er had the pleasure of meetin%
Professor Satija, but for many years we ha#e had a re%ular and li#ely e(mail
correspondence. )is work in the field in catalo%in% and classification has been
immensely #aluable to the international catalo%in% community, and his special
in#ol#ement in subject analysis and his lo#in% concern for the de#elopment of the Sears
&ist of Subject )eadin%s has been of special importance to me. 't is with sincere
%ratitude that ' con%ratulate Professor Satija on his retirement and salute his personal
contribution to the library profession and his continuation of the lon% history of
philosophical and inno#ati#e librarianship comin% to us from 'ndia "Miller .//0$.2

approbationD of this essay.
Professional Career
The professional career of Prof is #ersatile, althou%h his publications are more specialised
in knowled%e or%aniFation. As a teacher he stamped the impression of a teacher par se.
)e has produced a lon% list of *A books published in 'ndia and abroad. ?ith <.* papers
in scholarly journals alon% with e8tra efforts in producin% a mammoth <:0 book re#iews,
drafted a couple of book chapters and other forms of writin%s.
The major corpus of his writin%s consists majorly journal writin%s and book re#iews.
*A books on #arieties of areas are also a %ood number, and show his e8pertise. The latest

"a#asthan $ %&' &((, I)DIA* +,mail- n.s/ainlisfaculty0gmail*com
book by him has been published by Scarecrow Press of !.S.A. ?ith a sin%le bent of
mind he concentrates on the Cknowled%e or%anisationD. There wonDt be any library
schools in 'ndia where Prof. SatijaDs book is not recommended either for colon
classification or for Sears &ist of Subject )eadin%s. )is journal writin%s are also
multifarious. Almost all the 'ndian journals list his writin%s in their issues as the author
tipped earlier that e8tra effort has been e8hibited by showin% the list of book re#iews in
doFen of journals. 'n the succeedin% tables, readers can look at the e8hausti#e list of
journals in which Prof. SatijaDs work has appeard. 't is also obser#ed that his writin%s on
popular issues of library use and readin% habits are featured in local dailies.
'f we donDt discuss about his association with 'ndian library schools it would be
injustice to his laudable role for the teachin% and research of &'S. &ibrary Schools
especially in northern part of 'ndia are obli%ed to Prof. Satija either for e8tension lectures,
membership of board of studies, or for special lectures .To pro#ide a brief account of the
series of library schools of 'ndian uni#ersities may be as followsG !ni#ersity of Bammu, B

The h(inde8 is an inde8 that @uantifies both the actual scientific producti#ity and the
apparent scientific impact of a scientist. The inde8 is based on the set of the scientistSs
most cited papers and the number of citations that they ha#e recei#ed in other peopleSs
publications. The inde8 can also be applied to the producti#ity and impact of a %roup of
scientists, such as a department or uni#ersity or country. The inde8 was su%%ested by
Bor%e ;. )irsch, a physicist at !ni#ersity of >alifornia, San ie%o " !>S$, as a tool for
determinin% theoretical physicistsS relati#e @uality and is sometimes called the Cirsch
indeF or Cirsch number. The h(inde8 has yet to supplant older metrics.

Bor%e )irsch
".//:a, .//:b$ recently proposed a new research performance indicator that is desi%ned
for application at the micro le#el. The )irsch inde8, or h inde8, @uantifies as a sin%le(
number criterion the scientific output of a sin%le researcher. )irschDs ".//:b$ inde8 is an
ori%inal and simple new measure incorporatin% both @uantity and #isibility of
publications "#an +aan .//4$.
The 'nde8 is based on the distribution of citations recei#ed by a %i#en scholarDs total
publications. )irsch writesM
A scientist has indeF
p
h
if his;her papers ha!e at least h citations each and the other =
h )
p

? papers ha!e at most h citations each*
So a researcher with an inde8 of h has published h papers /ith at least h citations each.
SI h(inde8 is the result of the balance between the number of publications and the
number of citations per publication. -The inde8 is desi%ned to impro#e upon simpler
measures such as the total number of citations or publications, to distin%uish truly
influential scientists from those who simply publish many papers. The inde8 is also not
affected by sin%le papers that ha#e many citations. The inde8 works properly only for
comparin% scientists workin% in the same fieldG citation con#ention differs widely amon%
different fields2 ",ademani, ,umbar, and Surwase .//0 p. 14$.
