Use of SCI-based publication counts

S. Arunachalam

CURRENT SCIENCE, VOL. 85, NO. 10, 25 NOVEMBER 2003

Recently Karandikar and Sunder 1 and Pichappan 2 have expressed some misgivings about the use of Science Citation Index-based publication counts. I would, however, like to argue that the stand that the total number of papers published from a country should not be used as a science indicator is extreme. There is, I think, a strong risk of throwing out the baby with the bathwater.
