dc.description.abstractBotanical Survey of India (BSI) is the pioneer in the field of Indian Plant Taxonomy. Its core activity is the exploration and identification of national plant resources.The basics of all biotechnology related fields rely on the proper exploration and identification of the natural resources. In this concern, it is necessary to assess the research contribution of this highly privileged national institute in terms of undergoing a comparison between the two international citation databases. The Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) were the citation databases used in determining the international coverage of the research output of BSI. The results retrieved from those databases were studied in different aspects of scientometric variables such as total population count, citations count, prolific journals and articles. Also, prolific authors based on number of publications, citations received and h-index were taken into account. Additionally, a divergence prevailed in the coverage of citation databases with the institutional repository were also analyzed. After analyzing the databases in various aspects the findings have been registered. Suggestions have been given from the findings for the future improvements of coverage of research contribution in the international citation database from Botanical Survey of India.en_US
