Background: Thyroid Research and Practice (TRP) has been in existence since 2004 and since then it has been working for dissemination of knowledge and research in the field of thyroidology. This work was aimed at performing bibliometric analysis of TRP. Materials and Methods: The publications of year 2006-13 of TRP were analysed. Total number of articles published, type of articles, their authorship, and the coverage of various subspecialties was studied. The publications were also classified as being of Indian or foreign origin and from academic or non-academic institutions depending upon the institution of first author. Results and Conclusions: A total of 23 main issues and 1 supplementary issue were published in TRP in years 2006-13, including a total of 210 publications. Taking collectively, original articles were published in majority. There was a widespread coverage of all subspecialities of thyroidolgy, but maximum number of articles dealt with clinical thyroidology. Publications were largely originating from academic institutions. Although maximum number of articles were from India but the publications from other countries are also on an increase. Articles from all parts of the country have been published in TRP, but Kerala has contributed maximally.
