Since the attainment of independence, India witnessed a considerable progress in almost all the fields of knowledge especially in Science and Technology (S&T). Information was being generated before independence also, but the volume of new researches and the number of scientists were considerably less. The number of scientific institutions was also very small. The post-independent period saw an increase in the number of researchers, researches and formation of Learned Societies also. This led to the increase in the number of journals in various fields. Journals are vital resource for scientific research and development. These are widely used by R&D workers. Infact, research and technical journals all are an essential input and lifeblood of any organization. Primary journals are the main source of research communication. The growth of periodicals has kept pace with the growth of knowledge, which in turn has grown to the extent that researchers find it difficult to keep pace with the latest developments in their own fields. Even some of them are not aware of the total number of journals published in their specific fields. So keeping all these things in view, it is of paramount importance to make an analysis of the growth and development in the number of S&T journals in India.
