Abstract: The continuous, rapidly growing volume of scientific literature and increasing diversification of inter-disciplinary fields of science and their answers to unsolved problems in medical and allied fields of science present a major problem to scientists and librarians. It should be recalled in this aspect that today as many as 4800 scientific journals exist in the internet of which some are online only. The list of journals located in subject citation indexes in Thomson Reuters can be obtained from the website. From researchers’ point of view, the problem is amplified when we consider today’s competition where we may not be able to spend time on experimental work merely because of already published information. Therefore, considering these facts partly and the volume of serials on the other, a study has been initiated in evaluating the scientific literature published in various journal sources. The scope of the study does not permit inclusion of all periodicals in the extensive fields of biology and hence a text mining routine was employed to extract data based on keywords such as bioinformatics, algorithms, genomics and proteomics. The wide availability of genome sequence data has created abundant opportunities, most notably in the realm of functional genomics and proteomics. This quiet revolution in biological sciences has been enabled by our ability to collect, manage, analyze, and integrate large quantities of data.
