Ranking Methodology for School

The Chanakya Institute Ranking ( CIR ) is one of the largest academic rankings of Higher Education Institutions and every six months an independent, objective, free, open scientific exercise is performed by the JSR Lab for the providing reliable, multidimensional, updated and useful information about the performance of Institution from all over the world based on their web presence and impact.

Objectives and motivation

The main aim of the Institution Ranking is to promote academic information, supporting the Open Access initiatives for increasing significantly the transfer of scientific, Research and the actual information knowledge generated by the universities to the whole Society and Academic Outcomes. In order to achieve this objective, the publication of rankings is one of the most powerful and successful methods  for starting and consolidating the processes of change in the academia, increasing the scholars’ commitment and setting up badly needed long term strategies

        The objective is not to evaluate websites, their design or usability or the popularity of their contents according to the number of visits or visitors. Web indicators are considered as proxies in the correct, comprehensive, deep evaluation of the university global performance, taking into account its activities and outputs and their relevance and impact.

Philosophy and justification

Chanakya Institution Ranking (CIR) only publishes a Institutional Ranking of Universities/Institution in their edition. The result is of a careful investigation and it is not open to individual choosing by users without enough knowledge or expertise in this field.

CIR is a ranking of all the universities/Individual Institution of the India, not only a few hundred institutions from the developed world but also “World-class” universities usually are not small or very specialized institutions.

CIR is continuously researching for improving the Methodology of ranking, evolving the methods and the weighting model to provide a better classification. It is a shame that a few rankings maintain stability between editions without correcting errors or tuning up indicators.
