India Rankings-2019, 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. In 2018, while continuing with the above-mentioned six rankings three domain specific rankings in the field of Law, Medicine and Architecture were introduced. In this year, NIRF-2019 is continuing with all the Nine Rankings.

 

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 – 2019, the main ranking parameters remain the same. Taking cue from experience in ranking in previous three years, India Rankings-2019 introduces following changes:

 

  • In addition to normalizing publications, citations have been normalized by number of faculty in Overall, Engineering and Medical Categories, from this year onwards.

  • Number of beds in medical Institutions/colleges has also been incorporated as a sub-parameter for footprints of professional practice for ranking of medical intuitions.

  • Number of papers that appeared in the top 25 percentile of cited papers in the world [Instead of India] for a given discipline was taken as sub-parameter for evaluating research and professional practice and,

  • Article published in 50 journals identified by financial times [FT50] is incorporated as an additional sub-parameter of RP for ranking of Management Institutions.

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 system (DCS), Feedback System and the Perception Capturing System were developed for online capturing of data from applicant institutions, feedback from public and institutional perception [from peers and employees respectively]. As mentioned earlier, the data on publications, citations and highly cited papers were retrived directly from third-party sources. A brief description on data collection and data capturing is given below.

 

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. These citation databases comprise i. Science Citation Index Expanded [SCI-Expanded], Social Science Citation Index [SSCI], Book Citation Index-Social Sciences & Humanities [BKCI-SSH], Emerging Sources Citation Index [ESCI] and Current Chemical Reactions [ccr-Expanded] hosted on the web of Science platform: and ii. Scoups. All permutations, combinations and changes in the names of institutions were used while searching for articles published by faculty and researchers in the databases mentioned above.


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.
