UGC to award credit points on ‘quality’ of published work

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has directed Vice Chancellors and heads of institutions to ensure their decision to award credit points, promotions or research degrees should be based on “quality of published work” by an individual and not the quantity. The directive has been issued in the interests of Indian academic publishing and credibility of the research and the knowledge production, according to UGC officials.
