Clarivate Plc, a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, has announced the eighth edition of the India Research Excellence – Citation Awards. This year eight researchers and 12 institutions have received awards for their outstanding and pioneering research contributions. New categories to award Women in Research and those who have demonstrated excellence in research related to Sustainable Development Goals have been introduced this year.
Clarivate has recognized the most influential researchers and institutions in India since 2004. The awards were based on in-depth analysis on data compiled from the Web of Science™ citation index and InCites™ – a research performance benchmarking and analytics tool. Highly cited research publications that imply high impact research were an important criterion for the analysis, in addition to a series of other bibliometric indicators and a qualitative review of the research output.
The analysis was based on publication output during the period 2015-2020. The lifetime achievement category considered research contributions from 1980 onwards.
Distinguished speakers for this year’s awards included Dr. R.A. Mashelkar, Eminent Scientist and Former Director General Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) and Prof. Anil D. Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, All India Council for Technical Education.Click here to read the original press release.
