2022 Day 295 – RADIS Incentive Claim Publication Submission

In order to encourage researchers in UTM to write and publish in reputable journal, incentive claim has been introduce several years ago. It started more or less when UTM was given the Research University status. The incentive for journal paper publication back then was lucrative, for example Q1 journal will receive RM5000. Scopus journal will receive RM200. Citation will receive RM50, if I am not mistaken. That was quite some time ago.

Nowadays, the incentive claim depends on budget and the amount has been reduced. It has been very competitive as well. Q1 and Q2 journal paper will receive RM2000 and RM1500, respectively. There’s no longer any incentive for Scopus publication and also citation.

Alhamdulillah, the announcement for new Incentive Claim publication was announced and released 1-2 months ago. I have 2 journal papers that I submitted for the incentive claim. However, I’m not sure if the application will be reimburse this year since there are so many researchers who have so many journals who are waiting for the incentive claim budget and payment. InsyaAllah if there’s rezeki, there will be something for me and the team.
