Srinagar: Six faculty members from the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Srinagar have been included in the list of global AD (Alper-Doger) Scientific Index 2021, which was released last week.
The index was released by AD Scientific Index that provides evaluations, analysis of journals and universities based on the scientific performance, scientific productivity of individual scientists, and characteristics of affiliated scientists.
The ranking is using the total and last 5 years’ values of the i10 index, h-index, and citation scores in Google Scholar. In other words, the “AD Scientific Index” provides both the academic ranking and analysis results.
The five faculty members of NIT Srinagar who have been included in the global list of scientists include Professor (Dr.) M. F. Wani, Dr. Noor Zaman Khan, Assistant Professor, Dr. Harveer Singh Pali, Assistant Professor, Dr. Sandeep Rathee Assistant Professor from Mechanical Engineering Department, Dr. Asadur Rahman Assistant Professor Electrical Engineering Department and Dr. Vijay Kumar Assistant Professor Physics Department.
In his message, Director NIT Srinagar, Prof. (Dr.) Rakesh Sehgal congratulated the institute’s faculty members for being ranked in the global index list. It is a proud movement for all of us and research is part and parcel of any academic institution.
Prof. Sehgal said apart from funds and infrastructures, it is the trained manpower that really makes things happen. We have recently engaged qualified, trained, well-oriented, and specialized faculty members, and in the future, we are expecting more professors will surface in the index list.
Register NIT Srinagar, Prof. Kaiser Bukhari also congratulated all faculty members for being ranked in the global scientist index, which is a positive move for the Institute. In order to achieve quality and excellence in academics and research, we need to innovate each and every sphere to explore possibilities, he said.
Prof. Bukhari said from the past several years, NIT Srinagar is more focused on delivering good research products. Quality research index is a vital segment for obtaining good ranks in any research and that will also help people in the larger context,” he said.
The “AD Scientific Index” is the first and only study that shows the total and the last five-year productivity coefficients of scientists based on the h-index and i10 index scores and citations in Google Scholar.
In the survey, nine parameters were used by the organization for ranking of an individual scientist by 12 subjects, 256 branches in 11,700 institutions across 186 countries in 11 regions of the world.
