The literature covered in the database all through the years i.e. 1980-2019 was taken into consideration for this study. MEDLINE concealed the maximum of 9350 records in the field of Neuroanatomy. The United States is the prime publisher in the field of Neuroanatomy literature as per this study. 96.33% of records covered in English language in this analysis. There is a fluctuation trend in the study of Relative Growth Rate (RGR) and also in Doubling time (Dt) when calculated by year-wise. A complete of 85.71% of papers is written by way of multi-authors. The ratio represents the single and multi-authors’ papers is 1:7 in the area of Neuroanatomy literature. It was determined that meager percent i.e. 0.46% of records represent nameless authorship. The year-wise Degree of Collaboration shows the ratio in-between 0.38 to 0.94 in the field of Neuroanatomy literature. The Co-Authorship Index (CAI) for greater than two authors’ papers was lower in the first, second, and third blocks and enriched in the fourth block in this study. The average Collaborative Co-efficient (CC) has been arrived at 0.55 which indicates huge wide variety of contributions became by multiple authors papers in the subject of Neuroanatomy literature. The total study exposed that the multi-authors’ papers are lead in the Neuroanatomy research. It additionally indicates that the collaboration in Neuroanatomy research is in a growing trend in current years.</p> J. Ramakrishnan G. Ravi Sankar K.

As a result of this cluster of ladders, library services for disabled people in underdeveloped nations are typically limited.

Data were interpreted by using software such as Bibexcel, Vosviewer, and tabulated using MS Excel. The results indicated that 26822 papers were published during 2011 - 2021 and the highest number of publications 10712 (39.94%) was produced in 2020. The trends in multi-authored papers have tremendously increased (87.32%) compared to (12.68%) single-authored papers.

It also noted that the value of the highest degree of collaboration was (0.89) in 2020. The Zhang Y author (111) contributed more numbers of papers in the domain of Artificial Intelligence with USA (6491) being the country producing more research papers followed by China, the UK, and the India. More than 1600 papers had been published in Model, and Prediction. The study inferred that the rate of growth is relation by the year wise publications of Artificial Intelligence research.</p> H.
