Scarf Research Impact 2014

In the recent publication “A scientometric analysis of Indian research output in medicine during 1999–2008”   brought out by the Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine , SCARF has been designated as one of the  top 11 Medical Research Foundations in India.

SCARF was ranked 4 on H-index (research impact rating) of 13 which is quite a credible achievement for a single specialty, lone centre organization.  For example in comparison the whole of the University of Madras has a H-index rating of 17.

SCARF was also ranked 4 when the average number of citation for a publication (4.14) was calculated this again attests to the impact of its research.

SCARF is also the only organization working in the area of mental health that figures in the list.
