Citations and Ranking

An article "Using citations to Rank.." is an interesting read.

This article wonders how Veltech, a private university in Chennai, is ranked #1 in Asia on the basis of citations. The authors of that article should read this article.

Further, everyone keeps on changing the methodology. For example, the counting of "kilo-paper issue, papers mainly in particle physics with hundreds or thousands of authors and hundreds or thousands of citations." Read about it here.

Most centrally-funded institutions, including the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and universities, are conducting classes with over one-third faculty positions vacant, prompting the government to launch a major recruitment drive.
Worst hit are new central universities with 53.28% vacancies followed by NITs with 47% teacher vacancies. Old as well as new IITs, too, have over 35% vacancies, human resource development minister Prakash Javadekar said while announcing a major recruitment drive across campuses in the next fortnight.
In an interaction with a small group of journalists, Javadekar said the ministry is also thinking of re-employment and wooing industry experts to fill up teaching vacancies. Concerned over the number of vacancies in faculty positions, Javadekar said institutions will have to at least fill up 75% untenanted posts by the year-end.
Information provided to Parliament by the ministry on August 3, 2017 does not indicate that the situation improved significantly.
While vacancy status for old IITs has been recorded at 39%, new ones are only marginally better at 36%. NITs are worst affected with 47% vacancies. In fact 14 of 20 old NITs have a 40% and more vacancies, while four of eight old IITs have the same vacancy levels. Even Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have 26.01% vacancies. Among the IIMs, Indore has 51% vacant positions, followed by Kolkata with 41%.
Among central universities, central university of Haryana, according to HRD records, is reeling under 75.11% vacancies as on April 1, 2017, while in the same period Delhi University recorded a total of 54.75% vacancies against permanent positions. University of Allahabad too has over 64% vacancies to be filled.
Speaking to TOI, Javadekar said the government is monitoring the recruitment process every month and the universities have already started the recruitment process
