Abstract The paper presents publication analysis of doctoral candidates completing their Ph.D. in the year 2020. For identification of theses awarded by Indian universities in LIS in 2020, the notifications of the doctoral theses published in the column “Theses of the Month” (Social Sciences) of University News (weekly journal published by Association of Indian Universities, New Delhi) 2020 (volume 58) were consulted. Total 21 theses were accepted by Indian universities in Library and Information Science (LIS). During the period 2015-2022, total 92 documents were produced by these 21 scholars. Out of these, 46 papers were published in peer reviewed journals, 21 in Scopus, 01in Web of Science, and 07 in UGC CARE listed journals. Total 40 papers were based on Ph.D. work of the authors which include, 26 in peer reviewed journals, 11 in Scopus indexed journals and 03 in UGC CARE listed journals. Authors conclude that LIS doctoral candidates are broadly active researchers and publish beyond their Ph.D. work also. But quality of research publications in the LIS field still needs improvement. Keywords Research Quality, LIS Research, Doctoral Research.
