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 who captures the research output publications on an electronic system, the Research Administrator (RA system), and submits the electronic copies of the supporting documents on the RA sytem.. The closing date for submission is the second last Monday in January 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
