This study analyses the Leukemia research output carried out during the year 1960 – 2011 the different parameters including authorship pattern, growth, Time Series Analysis Degree of Collaboration Co-Authorship Index, Institutions’ contribution, most productivity journals were analysed. The overall growth rate of literature output is found to be positive with an increasing trend in leukemia research throughout the study period. Two and more authored papers constitute majority of the contribution and degree of collaboration had a maximum value of 0.96. The result shows that research development activities are increasing in leukemia research in India.
