What do the rankings say?

This year, in the top 20 rankings in both public and private domains there are very few surprises. A major upset is the University of Delhi, which has lost its AAAAA tag, due to its poor performance in Web of Science publishing system. Most universities that gained places in the ranking did so primarily because they publish much or in journals indexed by Scopus. The wider catchment area of Scopus in terms of more number of journals also appears to help.

Has research caught up?

When we examined the output score in detail, one heartening finding is that most universities have taken to publishing in refereed journals. Between 2013 and 2014, on an average, there is an 18% rise in the number of publications across the spectrum, and it is substantial as we go down the pecking order. Universities which had single digit publications during the last survey, now publish more than twice or thrice that number. If promoted and incentivized by the state, this would stand them in good stead in the years to come.

Craze for patenting goes down?

When we began to rate and rank the universities, efforts to patent was at its zenith. Institutions, assisted by the liberal patent grant schemes, went on a patent spree, with the numbers peaking in 2012. We see patent applications tapering off in the last two years, quite drastically at some institutions. Now, commercialization and utilization of existing IP appears to be taking precedence. But across the board, about 76% of the VCs and University Presidents we spoke to vouch by patenting and IP creation.

 

Accreditation still to catch up

With just 287 out of the 777 universities accredited, quality assurance is a long way off. Despite UGC’s mandate to apply for accreditation before 1st of June 2014, most universities showed little interest in external peer evaluation. This must stop. Accreditation process enables the institution to assess own standing vis-à-vis peers, providing valuable inputs to improve quality of programme design and delivery. The UGC funding is an effective tool to incentivize universities to go in for accreditation. As Prof A.N. Rai, Director, NAAC says, all universities must be assessed and those eligible, need to be accredited.

 

What next?

In future, Careers360 would attempt to deepen the evaluating parameters on faculty quality, calibre of Vice Chancellors and innovations in course offerings as well as contribution to innovation and entrepreneurship. All these have tremendous impact that needs to be factored in while examining quality. Follow us. Know more. Decide better!
