The Chronicle is a monthly online news magazine published by IT-BHU Global Alumni Association (IBGAA). Its first issue was published 4 years ago (May 2005 issue). The magazine represents news and views of IT-BHU (Institute of Technology-Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi) community including: students, alumni, faculty and administration. The magazine’s views are independent to those of alumni association or the institute.

Website: www.itbhuglobal.org/chronicle

The magazine faithfully records all the news and events happening for the IT-BHU community (hence the name chronicle-recorder of events). It publishes news and articles from a variety of published sources, which are important for the engineering students and professional engineers.

The magazine is published around 10-15 of each month. It is mass emailed to 10,000 alumni, students and faculty of the institute. Moreover, about 2,000 estimated students/alumni from other engineering colleges and from BHU read it regularly.

Copyright information

Chronicle collects important news and events info from various sources including news media, such as newspapers, magazines, online journals, etc. Chronicle publishes news articles and information for the benefits of community associated with the national level premier institute. It does not profit from publication in any form including: donations, contribution from members, online advertisements, etc. If any news media feels that this is not done in a proper way, they can contact us at the following email address.

Similarly, none of the published articles (created by chronicle team efforts) has copyright on it and others are free to copy or distribute it in any form without our permission. If they feel, they can mention the source as “IT-BHU Chronicle”.

Collaboration with search engines:

The magazine has entered into collaboration with leading search engines, such as Google, MSN, AOL, Yahoo!, etc. Because of this, many articles appear in the first 3 pages of search.

After publication of each issue, the crawlers from different search engines (with whom we have collaborations) set into the motion on the main page. Each crawler moves slowly (slowly because there are millions of crawlers working at different websites for a search engine and wait in queue for reporting a new entry to the main server of the search engine) from the front page to the inner pages. The articles appear in Google search results 1-2 weeks after the article is published.


Magazine Pages

Earlier, the magazine was published in single-page format, resulting in difficulty in accessing articles at the bottom by the readers. Since August 2008, the magazine is divided into 8 sections, called pages. Each page can be accessed by clicking the corresponding tab on the Tab on the top. The sections are as follows:

Home page: Contains list of all the articles in the issue, brief overview of the issue, editorial, feedback, obituary, any special message to readers, etc.

News page: Contains only news, in different categories. It contains news about IT-BHU, BHU, publication news, Varanasi news, national educational news and IIT news. Mostly the source is directly from news media.
