HEC Journals

HEC has been endeavoring to raise the quality of research in Pakistan to an international level. Research journals are excellent tools to enhance research capabilities. As such, it has been decided to approve those research journals which meet the HEC criteria for recognized journals. However, in order to bring these journals at par with international best standards, the commission, in its 34th meeting held on August 30-31, 2019 decided to make a major policy shift towards a more transparent, rigorous, and focused system for Accreditation, Monitoring, Capacity building and Funding of Research Journals. The approved revised criteria shall be applicable from 1st July, 2020. Till that time, the existing system shall continue to enforce.
