Sen, Bimal Kanti

Abstract

The letter shows how a wrong methodology and casual approach can inordinately distort bibliometric indicators. Opines that most bibliometric articles emanating from our country are articles of least effort. Such articles are not based on comprehensive data, as such results of the analysis are likely to be fraught with errors. Publication of such articles needs to be curbed.
