Purpose: The present study analysed around 96 articles, i.e. 51 from the DESIDOC journal and 45 from Library Hi Tech. This study tried to reveal the involvement of contents and their representation in the articles in the DESIDOC and Library Hi Tech journals. Design/Methodology/Approach: MS Excel was used for sorting different parameters, arrangements, tabulation, collection, and so on. To identify the differences and similarities of publication standards at the national and international levels, content analysis of full-text journal articles from the years 2017-2018 was conducted. The goal of the analysis was to infer the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the articles for comparison and correlation. Findings: This study revealed that the structure of the foreign journal, in comparison to the Indian journal, is technically sound, with the use of structurally advanced tools and techniques. Most of the aspects of the foreign journal articles had an edge over the articles in the Indian journal. Research Limitations/Practical Implications: The main limitation of the paper is that it covered only one article each in the Indian and foreign context, which limits its capacity to give a more generalised outcome. Originality/Value: This analysis has provided an insight that the foreign journal articles have more citations compared to the Indian journal, because of their theoretically and statistically sound structure.
