    HIR TIER 1 PUBLICATION & PAGE CHARGES
    (31 January 2013)

    The HIR Committee at its last meeting recently decided that the payment of page charges for articles in Tier 1 journals should be borne by the HIR MoHE grant of the PI. Although there is no ceiling set, it is hoped that PI will use their discretion and publish in high impact Tier 1 journals which do not levy page charges. If the PIs’ grants are inadequate to support such publications, they can apply to Central HIR Committee to pay for them. This would include open access journals. Page charges that exceed RM10,000 per article must have the prior approval of Central HIR.

    High Impact Research Funding for Science

     

    The HIR grants from the University of Malaya are to fund projects which will result in publication of manuscripts in Tier 1 ISI/Web of Science journals or in sciences nature. As such, the emphasis will be on fundamental research which will lead to the generation of new knowledge rather than on the development of new products or patents.
