The study highlights the distribution of articles, authorship patterns, collaborative coefficient, H-classic publication, research themes of the journal. The study found that half of the papers were authored by single author (290 papers, 50.43%). The results indicated that the growth of articles in the journal increased from 9 articles in 1989 to 30 articles in 2018. Majority of the contributions was by United States in every respect. The study found that United States has received highest number of citations (2528 citations, 77.43%), but in terms of CPP value the impact of papers of Australia is much higher than any other country including United States.
