​Research Outputs & Accreditation

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A survey is done annually by the department/centre/institution to record the research output publications of the previous output year for subsidy by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) as well as for inclusion in the annual research report of the University. Every department/centre/institution has a dedicated person w​ho captures the research output publications on an electronic system, the Research Administrator (RA),​​ and submits the supporting documents to the Research Office. The closing date for submission is the first Monday in February every year.

The DHET subsidises research outputs in the following categories: 
  • ​​Journal articles (research articles) in accredited journals
  • Peer-reviewed books/chapters in books 
  • Peer-reviewed published conference proceedings
Please see the DHET’s policy here for further details.
