 Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the level of specialization of Iranian journals in the field of library and information science. By specialization, we mean whether the topics of articles published in each journal are concentrated around specific subjects

Methodology: Subject analysis was done on 894 articles published between 2008 and 2012 based on LISA subject categories

Findings: The findings showed that 833 (93.17 %) of articles published in LIS journals were related to LIS fields and the rest (61 articles6.82%) were not related. In most of journals, there is no link between the title of the journal and its special subject. Only a few of the journals have focused subject areas and the rest publish articles on a wide range of disperse topics.

Originality: This study could be conducted to improve the behavioral pattern of researchers and the quality of LIS journals
