               6. Scopus Indexed Publications

               Beginning  from  the  academic  year  2013-14,  the  URB  in  coordination  with  DVC  suggested
               incentives  for  research  to  encourage  faculty  members  at  DU  to  engage  in  quality  research
               activities. Faculty members who publish their research work in Scopus or Web of science were
               awarded with a cash reward. Following this, faculty members have been actively involved in
               publishing their research work in Scopus indexed journals. From 5 publications in 2005 to 185
               publications in 2016, the trend has undoubtly accelerated. Table 5 summarizes the publications
               in Scopus indexed journals since 2005 while figure 9 displays the increasing trend each year,
               whereas, figure 10 displays the distribution of papers published as per their discipline.
