PU Research Journals
PUNJAB University (PU) Vice Chancellor presided over a special meeting of the Research Journal Committee on Friday to review status and improve standard of 31 journals of the varsity.
PU VC Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran asked all the editors to keep their record up-to-date and maintain the same as per requirements of the Higher Education Commission (HEC). The participants pointed out lack of sufficient PU representation in various sub-committees constituted by the HEC for recognition of varsity research journals.
It was noted that there was some hesitation on the part of faculty members for getting their research papers published in the journals which were not recognized by the HEC. The participants underlined the need for holding of the HEC meeting frequently for early recognition of the varsity research journals.
