Indian research skewed towards engineering, sciences

  1. News: India’s output of scientific publications may be increasing but their quality is skewed, according to Current Science journal
  2. Skew: Towards physical sciences and engineering with very little for biological sciences and medicine, and virtually none in social sciences, arts and humanities when excellence at the highest level is considered
  3. India annually publishes about 1,00,000 research papers but its top research institutions appear to be focussed on engineering and physical sciences
  4. Indian institutions did not make the quality cut or were too few in the arts and humanities, business, management and accounting, neuroscience, nursing, psychology and social sciences
