Deputy Principal Prof. Horace Ochanda with the ICT Director Mr. Christopher Moturi together with other Campus Staff going through the web ranking indicators.


The Kenya Science Campus section heads held a Web Ranking Indicators meeting on Monday, May 22 2017 at the Central Catering Unit to discuss whether the campus had put in place proposed strategies to improve the web ranking indicators for the campus. The meeting was chaired by the Deputy Principal, KSC, Prof. Horace Ochanda where the campus was evaluated on the following four (4) parameters:


·         Impact/Visibility,

·         Excellence,

·         Transparency

·         Presence


The campus had improved tremendously on back links registered under the Impact parameters and was on course on the other indicators under the said parameter. The campus was given guidance on improving and scoring on the number of academic papers published and cited under the high impact journals and informed that it should seek the assistance from the office of the Director of Research on a SCIMAGO tool which helps filter journals for the campus to have the same reflected in the campus website.

Mr. David Wekesa and Ms. Monica Mwakazi (right) were among the evaluating team. Next to them is our Assistant Admin Mr. Steve Kiboi.


The campus had recently identified for appointment section heads to be web champions and help enhance the web ranking indicators of the campus. Majority of staff members have opened google scholar accounts and the same are active. Staff members were encouraged to keep uploading their respective publication in their respective profiles for the same to be captured in their google scholar accounts. The campus had had eleven (11) academic staff members citations hit 5,364 against a set target of 4,952 citations which was commendable.

The UoN Performance Contract Secretariat informed the members that the meeting shall be held weekly to track progress made towards achieving and surpassing the set targets as well as the campus being expected to table evidence of the progress made.
