NIFS Scientists become No. 1 in Sri Lanka by AD Scientific Index of 2024

The AD Scientific Index (Alper-Doger Scientific Index), is a ranking and analysis system based on the scientific performance and the added value of the scientific productivity of individual scientists. Furthermore, it provides rankings of institutions based on the scientific characteristics of affiliated scientists.

The AD Scientific Index has been developed by using the total and last 5 years’ values of the i10 index, h-index, and citation scores in Google Scholar. Using a total of nine parameters, the “AD Scientific Index” shows the ranking of an individual scientist based on 12 subject areas, 256 branches, 13,542 institutions, 219 countries, 11 geographical regions and in the world. The “AD Scientific Index” provides both the academic ranking and analysis results.

Productivity Rankings is another unique feature offered only by the “AD Scientific Index”. This is a ranking system derived from the i10 index in order to show the productivity of the scientist in publishing scientific articles of value. Productivity Rankings is an instrument that lists productive scientists in a given subject area, discipline, university, and country and can guide the development of meaningful incentives and academic policies.
