The study critically analyses the 309 research articles published in the Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery during the span of ten years from 2009 to 2018. It is an online open access journal and the required data for the study were downloaded from its website. The data were analysed with the help of MS Excel, and bibliometric indicators such as year-wise distribution, relative growth rate, authorship collaboration and length of articles have been applied for the analysis. The study reveals that the maximum numbers of articles were contributed by multiple authors and that Indian authors have contributed more number of articles during period of study. The length of the articles published in the Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery during the period of study was three to sixteen pages.
