India’s top researchers: How did we search?

 

The search was conducted by keying ‘India’ as an affiliation country on Elsevier Science’s bibliographic indexing database - Scopus where we got about 1,097,392 records. We chose Scopus since it covers 46 million abstracts from over 19,500 peer-reviewed titles. From the total, we filtered the search for three years (2011-2013) and got 297,433 records, which were then sorted according to subject areas. Scopus broadly groups the whole universe of knowledge into four subject categories: Physical, Health, Social, and Life Sciences and then has 30 subcategories. Top 10 authors from each of the 30 domains were selected based on their publication count and h-index. It means that if an author has an h-index of 12, then out of the total number of documents produced by him/her, 12 of the documents have been cited 12 times. It is used to measure the productivity and impact of the published work. Owing to similar names, the top authors are identified on the basis of a unique identification number (ID) given by Scopus. Foreign authors and those having an affiliation with an institution other than Indian universities were excluded.
