regulations

In this page, we list some questions that have been raised by faculty members about regulations and promotion.

Is there any difference between open access journals and regular journals in terms of promotion?

No; a paper published in an open access journal is treated the same way as a regular journal.

Are papers published in special issues counted for promotion?

Yes; as long as the issue is specialized and the journal itself is eligable.
