Indicators for Websites: Particular Reference to Geriatric Sites. Journal of Scientometric Research. 2012;1(1):79-85. doi:10.5530/jscires.2012.1.13..
Several initiatives which could be applied at different levels to improve the average quality of web sites have been proposed. In the present ongoing study, efforts have been made to test the risk markers for disappearance of certain geriatric web sites with particular reference to India. The elderly population is increasing globally, so is in India. For this cross-section of society, Internet is a very useful communication media, so the sites catering to their needs must maintain their quality and should survive. Various webometric parameters are being employed to develop a model for calculation of survival chances of a web site.
