2. CITATIONS’ TREND

A true measure of a Institute’s progress with respect to academic research is showing increase in number of citations for the Institute’s publications.

Scopus and Web of Science gives a comparative tracking of citations received by papers of a Institute every year. So papers published right from inception of the Institute, up and until the year of measurement, is considered and the citations received by those papers in the year of measurement are tracked.

A representation of the citation trend for the Institute’s publications from Scopus and Web of Science databases is presented below:

Citations' Trend

NOTE:

The summation of the individual database count will not be equal to the total publications as one publication can be indexed in more than one database.

4. PUBLICATIONS’ LEVEL ANALYSIS

For identifying whether a Journal/Conference is National or International, we find out the publisher and based on the nationality of the publisher (Headquarters of the publisher’s office) we decide if the corresponding Journal/Conference is International or National. All Journals/Conferences organized/run by Indian publishers are tagged ‘National’ while all Journal/Conferences organized/run by Non-Indian publishers are tagged ‘International’.

Indexed database Analysis

FIGURE 4: LEVEL ANALYSIS

CURRENT YEAR (2017) IN STATS:

Current year (2017) already has 21 publications in International journals/Conferences and 18 publications in National journals/conferences(as on 31-Aug-17).

Current year (2017) numbers are not shown in the chart above, as it does not reflect the full year’s performance.

6. h-INDEX ANALYSIS

6.1. SCOPUS

The h-Index is based on the distribution of citations received by a given Institute’s publications. An index of ‘h’ for a Institute indicates that among the articles published by the Institute, ‘h’ articles have been cited at least ‘h’ number of times.

The h-Index of RMD Engineering College in Scopus is 10 (as on 31-Aug-17)
