Best academic stars across universities
Team Careers360, 17 Jan 2014

HOLLOWED PORTALS of Indian Institute of Science is home to many a world class researcher


PUSHING 70, Prof. CNR Rao just doesn’t seem to slow down. The academic colossus left IISc a good 14 years ago, but he still remains the topper in the number of publications to his credit. The next institution he set up, Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Research, too has him as one of the top contributors. The IISc corridors still reverberates in hushed tones about his academic discipline and productivity.

The scholars we present in the coming pages are no less. Quite a few of them were educated in the best institutions of the West. But all of them invariably came back to serve the country that gave them so much. Some came immediately after their PhD, some after  a few years of Post-doctoral work. But all of them came back. They battled the same system, they worked around the same set of rules which most others grumble about and give up, but they did not.

What differentiates these 200+ individuals is the fact that they were able to match the academic productivity of the best in their fields, with all the constraints they and their colleagues face. Some of their stories are fascinating. Prof BT Gowda of Mangalore University, with 485 papers single-handedly contributes to nearly 25 percent of the whole university. The publication record varies as we move down the pecking order. For the top 25 colleges, we have identified the top five most productive academics. For the next 25 universities we aggregated the list of all the professors and selected the top 100 most productive individuals. What is interesting is the fact that in the Top 25 institutions, even the most productive academic does not contribute more than 1.5- 6% of the total output. But as one moves down the order, many universities would be hurt quite badly in case a star faculty of theirs quit suddenly. As institutions realise the value of academic productivity, the day is not far off when these academic stars are feted, wooed, provided with generous research grants and sought after! Read about them in the coming issues ...
