Productivity Of Indian Telescopes: Impact Analysis Through Scientometric Methods

B M Meera, M Manjunath
2014 Zenodo  
Such papers further get used by their peers and get cited. This is the actual impact of the telescopes in terms of scholarship.  ...  Productivity measure is the number of papers published from 14 telescopes under study. Astronomical data observed through these telescopes gets transformed into research papers.  ...  Early reference to Indian astronomical instruments in literature is given about a) The armillary sphere b) Clypsydra (water clock) c) Gnomon ( a vertical stick).  ...

This report presents the results from the research study on applying large scale data mining methods into analysis of traffic accidents on the finnish roads.  ...  Machine learning algorithm takes accident frequency count as a parameter to cluster the locations. Then we used association rule mining to characterize these surface condition.  ...  Astronomers use it to sift through huge amounts of astronomical data; since they cannot analyze each object one by one, they need a way to statistically find points of interest for observation and investigation  ...

Research Output from Lick Observatory for 1965-2019 [article]

Graeme H. Smith, Matthew Shetrone
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The metric of productivity used here is the annual number of refereed papers within which are presented results that are based at least in part on observations made with the telescopes of LO on Mount Hamilton  ...  Author networks serve to document the UC astronomical communities that were using LO telescopes at these peak times. Institutional affiliations of first authors are documented.  ...  We wish to recognize the technical and support staff of Lick Observatory, many of whom reside on Mount Hamilton.  ...
