ABSTRACT
The epoch-making research by H. .1 Bhabha has gained eponymous status synonymous with his name and international fame. Out of the 427 eponymous bibliographic records for H J. Bhabha retrieved from the Science Citation Index (1982-2002), majority of the records were for: bhabha scattering (290), angle bhabha scattering (42), small angle bhabha scattering (21), radiative bhabha scattering (17), large-angle bhabha scattering (16), resonant bhabha scattering (12), and low-angle bhabha scattering process (10). Percentage scattering of the eponyms in various bibliographic zones were: Key Words Plus (47.16%), Abstract (26.79%), Title (22.75%), and Author keywords (3.3%). Based on terminological similarities of the eponyms, 19 clusters were formed The keyword `photon corrections' occurred in eight clusters whereas `bhabha scattering `cross section(s) `gauge-theories', `high-energies', and `multiple bremsstrahlung' each one was common to seven clusters. Content analysis based on the presence of keywords among the clusters using number of common keywords was attempted as a pilot study and depicted as a dendrogram. Non-Indexed Eponymal Citedness (NIEC) is a sign jficant phenomenon that should not be neglected while documenting the citations to an individual scientist.
