P1.5 M grant up for best research journals
by PIA release

The Commission on Higher Education is set to award up to P1.5 million to scholars with promising and high-quality journals that will qualify under the Journal Incentive Program (JIP).

CHED recently released the guidelines for JIP, encouraging universities, colleges, scientific and other scholarly organizations with research journals to apply to the program.

CHED aims to promote and enhance the research productivity of higher education institutions and produce high-quality journals through the initiative. It also intends to pursue research integrity and honesty, and make sure that local journals adhere to international standards.

In 2015, only 28 out of 777 (3.6 percent) Philippine scientific and scholarly journals made it to the prestigious international collections of journals of Thompson Reuters’ Web of Science and Elsevier’s Scopus, which shows that the country is far behind its Asian neighbors and the rest of the world in science publishing.

CHED believes that the inclusion of scholarly and scientific writings in these collections is not just a mark of achievement but is also a factor in considering terms of tenure, promotion and other scholarly recognitions.

The two categories under JIP are the Journal Challenge, which caters to journals indexed or included in the Web of Science core collection of Thompson Reuters; and the database of Elsevier’s Scopus and Journal Incubator, which supports promising journals towards the path to meet the minimum generally accepted standards to be included in Scopus/WoS database.

Scholars with journals qualified under JC will receive P500,000 yearly for three years, while those who will qualify for JI will get P400,000.

Submission of applications for the CHED-JIP has been extended until Jan. 31. Results will be released on Feb. 28.
