India Rankings-2018, National Institutional Ranking Framework, MHRD

The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was approved by the MHRD and launched by Honorable Minister of Human Resource Development on 29th September 2015.


In 2016, rankings were announced for Universities and for the specific disciplines of Engineering, Management and Pharmacy. In 2017, in addition to these, the common overall ranking, and ranking of General Degree Colleges were introduced for the first time. While continuing with these themes this year (2018), NIRF is pleased to add rankings in the fields of law, medicine and architecture from this year.

 

Parameters for Ranking of Institutions:

The parameters broadly cover “Teaching, Learning and Resources,” “Research and Professional Practices,” “Graduation Outcomes,” “Outreach and Inclusivity,” and “Perception” for ranking.

 

Ranking Methodology:

For India Rankings – 2018, the main ranking parameters remain the same. Taking cue from experience in ranking in previous two years, India Rankings-2018 introduces following changes:

 

  • First attempt to link the AISHE database with the ranking effort

  • Data on patent applied for and earnings from patents discontinued as parameter

  • Perception from academic and industrial peers continued and made more broad-based.

  • Public perception discontinued.

  • Score computation methodologies and the parameters similar across domains and Categories.

  • Weights somewhat different on a few parameters, to take into account the discipline-specific /category- specific issues. Example: weight for research very small for general degree colleges.

  • Indian Citation Index (ICI) discontinued as a source data for publications and citations.


Source of Data: Institutions and Third Party Source: In the absence of a reliable and comprehensive database that could supply all relevant data required for computing the scores for ranking, registered institutions were invited to submit the required data through an Online Data Capturing System (DCS).


Data Collection and Data Capturing: Data capturing through Online Data Capturing System (DCS) sought the detailed data in a format that would be useful for both computing the ranking metrics for each parameter, and also to check on data consistencies. Detailed notes were provided to explain even the simplest of data entries to make it easily comprehensible and user friendly.


Publications, Citations and Highly Cited Papers (HCP): Web of Science(WoS) and Scopus: Two sets of citation databases were used as sources for retrieving data on the number of publications, citations and highly cited papers for the registered institutions.


Online Feedback System: Stakeholders (that included public or other individuals or entities having an interest in one or more institutions) were invited to give their feedback through “Online Feedback System” on the data submitted by the institutions, through a public advertisement in the newspapers and other media.
 

Data Verification: The Implementation Core Committee (ICC) set-up by the MHRD to oversee the implementation of ranking work addressed issues and pit-falls in the process of data collection, verification, authentication and interpretation.


Nodal officers were identified and contacted to clear doubts or to attend to the feedback and anomalies pointed out by the expert committees. Verification of Data on Publications, Citations and Highly Cited Papers.

Data Interpretation and Ranking: Based on issues and pit-falls brought to the notice of  Implementation Core Committee (ICC) related to data collection, verification, authentication and interpretation minor deviations were introduced in the metric and parameters defined in the NIRF.


Rankings are based on the information and data provided by the institutions. Data on publications and citations have been taken from standard indexing and citation sources, viz., Scopus (Elsevier Science) and Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics, formerly Thomson Reuters). Perception data has been compiled from inputs from employers and peers.
