Where do Indian Open Access Repositories stand in world ranking?

January 2010 Edition of the "The Ranking Web of World repositories" is now available. Cybermetrics Lab has been bringing out such ranking of open access repositories for past few years.

Ranking of Indian Repositories in top 400 world's repositories is given below:

82 - Indian Institute of Science Bangalore ePrints

148 - Openmed

180 - Indian Statistical Institute Digital Library

218 - Indian Institute of Astrophysics Dspace

245 - National Institute of Oceanography India Digital Repository

278 - Raman Research Institute Digital Repository

370 - National Aerospace Laboratories Institutional Repository

Visibility occupies more weight in their methodology as compared to number of documents in repository.

So, how does India score - Good, bad or just OK?

Hi, I couldn't find your email address, so I thought I'd leave you an comment instead...

Hi [name],

I noticed you were a fan of Libraious.I thought I'd email you about a article I've recently put together about cataloging software I'd like to call: The Ultimate Guide to Cataloging Software.

I've gone through a lot of cataloging software (42 to be exact) and picked 4 apps that I believe are the best in the following categories: Best Mac, Best Windows & Linux, Best Web based, and Best Delicious Library for Windows Software.

When you get a chance, can you take a look at the guide? If you like it, could you give it a little plug on  I think you're readers might find it informative and useful, at least I hope so, or I've just wasted a day on it;(

Thank You,
