In recent years bibliometric studies has been increasingly gaining importance. It is important to make subject based bibliometric assessment in order to specify priority of journals and subject fields within discipline. The study examines IS (Information Science) subject field. Seventy-three IS journals and 4 quality indicators, derived from JCR (Journal Citation Report) and SCOPUS were evaluated and subject based value/position of these journals have been analyzed. Subject analysis model was proposed and the model based on data extracted from journals. K-mean cluster analysis has been carried out for subject fields of IS journals obtained from LC (Library of Congress) Classification System. The study yields results concerning about interdisciplinary structure of IS discipline by defining total value of subject fields and their position within the discipline.
