Bibliometrics is a type of research method used in library and information science which utilizes qualitative analysis and statistics to describe patterns of publications within a given field or body of literature. 'Bibliometrics for science policy and management' is a domain of research evaluation where the National, Regional and Institutional structure of science and their presentation are in forefront. (Sri Amudha and Sevukan, 2014). Bibliometrics as a tool can be applied in any field of study. Diabetes is not exceptional. Diabetes affects millions of people and is a very serious lifelong health problem. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that nearly 200 million people all over the world suffer from diabetes and this number is likely to be doubled by 2030. In India, there are nearly 50 million diabetics, according to the statistics of the International Diabetes Federation. By 2030, India will have the largest number of patients in the world. Diabetes is not only a blood sugar problem, but brings along other complications as well. It is really a burning and serious issue to be addressed in developing countries like India. To prevent or minimize or eliminate the problem of diabetes, a meticulous and deep research is needed. Research is being carried out throughout the year. The results of the findings have to be importantly communicated by the researchers. For communicating research results, there are various forms. Still, journals play an important role in communicating original research findings widely used by the research community which is found in R&D organizations and higher educational institutions. The quality of the journals varies from one to another based on many criteria. At this juncture, identification of quality journals to be subscribed with constraint budget becomes a challenging task for libraries and policy makers.
