Scientometric Analysis

Scientometrics is the study of measuring and analyzing science, technology and innovation, which includes the measurement of impact, reference sets of articles to investigate the impact of journals and institutes, understanding of scientific citations, mapping scientific fields and the production of indicators for use in policy contexts. The Centre has an active working group on scientometrics with the focus on accessing how well Indian institutions perform in various fields of scientific research. The team, led by Prof. Subbiah Arunachalam (a globally renowned scientometrician), has developed a methodology for data-collecting and a general framework for studying the research performance of Indian institutions in various scientific disciplines. Through which, the Centre currently has on-going studies to evaluate the research performance of some of the major disciplines, such as chemistry, engineering, materials, astrophysics, mathematics, biological sciences, and physics.
