Post Doctorate by Prior Publication or Existing Published


           Post Doctorate by Prior Publication or Existing Published or Series of Publication is a post-doctoral level award and it is being awarded to the persons who have published quality publications after graduating with an accredited Ph.D. Please note that accreditation normally comes with government agencies’ approvals, which is also accompanied by attestation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. The content of the publication must be of new knowledge and contemporary. Scientific contents can be backdated up to 10 years and it is still acceptable for an award. In the Medical field, 7 ISI journal publications are required while in Engineering or Science field, 10 journal publications are primarily required. Any low-quality publication or conference papers will completely be rejected without reconsideration. The content of publications must have coherence in its order. The normal procedure is that the eligible candidates have to apply through our system, which is given here. The required documents are as follows: i) a list of publications, ii) a detailed CV, iii) a photograph, iv) scanned Ph.D. copy, and v) an attestation. Five members of the panel will evaluate the application once it reaches us, as to finalize and recommend it to the senate of Universities. However, the final decision lies in the hand of the University's senate. The fee is a must in this mode after the successful acceptance by universities. A minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 12 months may consume the entire process but the Ph.D. Viva Voce Examination is not compulsory for this model. As to honor the candidate’s contribution to the field, Advan-kt's Consortium Universities will also award the 'Assistant Professor' title together.
