Covenant’s Scholarly Output in Computer Science since 2014 surpasses that of 72 other Nigerian Institutions Combined

 

There are no limitations to what God can do in the life of an individual or an institution, which is exemplified by the seemingly unattainable feats Covenant University continues to accomplish in the rather short time of her existence.

According to the latest computation by Elsevier, a global information analytics business that helps institutions and professionals progress science, advance healthcare and improve performance, the aggregate of scholarly output recorded by Covenant in Computer Science between 2014 and 2020 surpassed that of the totality of 72 other institutions. These institutions cut across the Federal, State and Private-owned in Nigeria within the same period.

The report sourced from Scopus and released on Thursday, May 7, 2020, stated that Covenant had a whopping 1,062 output within the period in review. Her production surpassed the efforts of scores of other institutions including 1st and 2nd generation universities. Federal University of Technology, Minna, emerged a distant runner-up to Covenant with 244 scholarly output. The University of Nigeria Nsukka was credited with 238 scholarly output; University of Lagos (226); University of Ibadan (212); Federal University of Technology, Akure (206); University of Ilorin (189); Ahmadu Bello University (184); and Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife (170).

Surprisingly, aside Covenant, the other private institution in the top 10 of the universities with most outputs in Computer Science was Landmark University, which is a sister university to Covenant. The Omu Aran, Kwara State-based University had 160 scholarly output.

The latest development, which coincided with the conquest of new grounds in the recently released 2020 Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings, was further testimony to the Covenant University’s soaring profile in the field of research.

To God alone be all the glory.
