Research outputs Policy 2015 – SA DHET.


It outlines the criteria for the measurement and evaluation of research outputs of public higher education institutions (HEIs).

The development of this policy was driven by the imperatives for transformation of the higher education system contained in White Paper 3, a Programme for the Transformation of Higher Education (1997), the National Plan for Higher Education (2001) and the White Paper for Post-School Education and Training

The purpose of this policy is to encourage research productivity by rewarding quality research output at public higher education institutions. The policy is not intended to measure all output, but to enhance productivity by recognising the major types of research output produced by higher education institutions and further use appropriate proxies to determine the quality of such output.

Look out for the following :

Journal editors, 5.8 – 5.14,

Book authors and editors, 6.1 – 6.15,

Conference Proceedings, 7.1 – 7.19

Government Gazette No. 38552
