The study has ranked Indian Institutes of Technology based on the number of citations of top 10 profiles on Google Scholar. The methodology prescribed by the Ranking Web of Universities has been adopted. Top ten user profiles based on the number of citations on Google Scholar have been considered for each of the 23 IITs using institutional email domain. The first (top 1) profile of the list is excluded for improving representativeness. The number of citations for the rest of the top 10 profiles has been added and IITs have been ranked in the descending order of this indicator. IIT Delhi secured the top position, while IIT Goa is placed last. Seven IITs did not have institutional profile on Google Scholar, though individual user profiles use institutional email address.
