The Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan invited the applications for the year 2021-22 from all Pakistan-based research journals, which meet the HEC accreditation criteria. The journals currently enlisted in HEC Journal Recognition System (HJRS) will also have to apply afresh. The applications may be submitted online through “Accreditation of Research Journals” Tab of HEC’s Research Management System.
HEC facilitates national research journals published by registered entities (universities or department of faculties of such entities or registered research institutions or non-profit academic societies with a mandate for research) through financial support and capacity building to enhance their academic and publications standards. National research journals complying with HEC requirements for accreditation are recognized annually through an open call.
