This study con­ducted a bibliometric anal­y­sis of the sub­mit­ted masteral theses in the pro­gram Mas­ter of Arts in Ed­u­ca­tion, Ma­jor in Ed­u­ca­tional Man­age­ment in Saint Colum­ban Col­lege (SCC) from 2012-2016. The re­searcher for­mu­lated im­pli­ca­tions based from the find­ings of the study to the li­brary col­lec­tion devel­op­ment and the re­search process. The bibliometric anal­y­sis was car­ried out to iden­tify the re­search pro­file of the pro­gram in terms of its strengths and gaps of the re­search sub­ject, to dis­tin­guish ob­so­les­cence and type of cited re­sources and to pre­pare a rank list of the core jour­nals through the ap­pli­ca­tion of Brad­ford’s Law of Scat­ter­ing (BLS). The study re­veals that the data set is valid but does not fit the for­mu­la­tion of BLS. A high per­cent­age of ob­so­les­cence and the in­con­sis­tency in ci­ta­tion was also un­cov­ered. It is re­solved that to im­prove the re­search qual­ity of the pa­pers, im­pli­ca­tions de­ter­mined by the bibliometric study should be in­te­grated in the col­lec­tion devel­op­ment pol­icy of the li­brary and in a more thor­ough prac­tice and fa­mil­iar­iza­tion on ref­er­enc­ing.

Key­words: bib­lio­met­rics; ci­ta­tion anal­y­sis; re­search eval­u­a­tion; teacher ed­u­ca­tion; ref­er­enc­ing
