Abstract

The study conducted on assessing the quality of postgraduate research revealed that the student research
is being amply published and on an average two publications are being brought out from each thesis. From
postgraduate research, more than 60 per cent of the publications were published in journals having NAAS
rating <4.0 in both the universities viz., Acharya N G Ranga Agricultural University (ANGRAU) and Tamilnadu
Agricultural University (TNAU). The articles published during the last five years of research from 2011-2016
having NAAS rating above 6.0 are only 5.32% and 8.05% in ANGRAU and TNAU, respectively. Majority of the
faculty opined that innovativeness and specialization are playing a major role in identifying research topic.Lack
of participation in appropriate forums,lack of sufficient funding and infrastructure facilities are the main reasons
affecting the quality of PG research.
