IIT Kharagpur Researchers Feature Among World’s Top 2%

Share this:

Several faculty members from IIT Kharagpur have been featured in a recent article by a famous analyst group of Stanford University published in the journal of PLOS Biology. The article has ranked top scientists inclusive from various disciplines worldwide by normalizing all publication data across fields, which is inclusive of the top 2% of scientists of their respective main subfield disciplines.

World ranking of scientists upto a threshold number within the field is given in Table 6  and as research publications output in the year 2019 is given in Table S7 in the article, titled “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators”.

Talking about this feat Director Prof. Virendra K Tewari said, “I would like to mention here that institutions like IITs and IIT Kharagpur, in particular, are also recognized for technology development, patents and commercialization with the goal to maximize social reach through affordability and ease of use. However, recognition by a quantified index is indeed satisfying.

    Further to my previous comment. Let me add that it might be difficult for you to locate people like Professor H.S. Ray who had joined other organizations, CGCRI in his case, post retirement, though bulk of their work was done at IIT, Kharagpur.
