PUBLICATIONS’ INSIGHT REPORT

 

Objective

The objective of the research is to conductpublication analysis for ‘R.M.D.Engineering College’ (Henceforth referred to as ‘RMD’)to analyze the quantity and quality of research publications of the Institute.

Scope:

To consolidate all ofR.M.D’sresearch publications into one database to analyze the following:

1. PUBLICATION'S TREND [2003 - 2016]

Our Research for publications forR.M.D EngineeringCollege in 5 databases viz., Scopus, Web of Science, Indian Citation Index, IEEEand Google Scholar has identified a consolidated unique list of 518publications for the years 2003-2016.

Analyzing the publications on a year-on-year basis makes for an interesting reading. The publications of the Institute have been consistently increased from2007 to 2015.

CURRENT YEAR (2016) IN STATS

Since the current year’s data will not be a true reflection of the yet-to-complete year, the count for 2016 is not presented in the chart above.

The current year 2016 thus far (as on 20-Dec-16) has a total 73 Publications in the 5 considered databases.

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

FIGURE 2: CITATION TREND ANALYSIS

TOTAL CITATIONS

The Institute has garnered a total of 619 citations in Scopus from 2003-2016 (as on 20-Dec-16). The Institute has garnered a total of 390 citations in Web of Science from 2003-2016(as on 20-Dec-16).

CURRENT YEAR (2016) IN STATS

Current year (2016) already has 107 citations in SCOPUS(as on 20-Dec-16) and 54 citations in WOS(as on 28-Nov-16).

Current year (2016) numbers is not shown in the chart above, as it does not reflect the full year’s performance.

Citations received by each publication on a year-on-year basis is not available in Google Scholar and hence, citation trend from Google Scholar is not presented in Figure 2

However, the h-Index for Google Scholar based on citations as on date for each paper is presented in Section 6.3.

3. DATABASE SPREAD ANALYSIS

The research has identified a total of 518 publications and please find below the chart that outlines the performance of the Institute in each of the 5 indexed databases.

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 (2016) IN STATS

Current year (2016) already has 48 publications (as on 20-Dec-16) in International journals/Conferences and 25 publications (as on 20-Dec-16) in National journals/conferences.

Current year (2016) numbers are not shown in the chart above, as it does not reflect the full year’s performance.
