Higher education institutions ought to be centres of learning as well as knowledge creation. Ne w knowledge is generated through research activities carried out by its faculty. There are various parameters for ranking an institution such as curriculum standards, student placement record, admission demand, high profile faculty, investment and infrastructure facilities, alumni accomplishments etc. Going by this, the prime objective of a higher education institution is often forgotten. ABC model recently developed by Aithal P.S & Suresh Kumar P.M., focus on measuring annual research performance of higher educational institutions. According to this model, an organization can calculate its annual research performance using its annual research output by taking into account the following factors such as the number of articles published in refereed journals, the number of books published, and the number of chapters in edited book or number of business cases published in Journals. Studying the implications of a system or model considering all determinants in key areas and analysing the key issues to identify the effective factors and its critical constituent element is the task of ABCD analysis model. In this paper, we have attempted to apply ABCD analysing technique on ABC model of annual research productivity of higher educational institutions.
