HEC Recognized Journals

HEC has developed an online system called the HEC Journal Recognition System (HJRS) for accreditation of research journals. HJRS is a collection of research journals that are categorized into three different categories – W, X, and Y -- within their respective knowledge areas on the basis of a number of international benchmarked and recognized parameters that measure the quality of a journal. The online system can be accessed at hjrs.hec.gov.pk. For any queries, please send an email to hjrs@hec.gov.pk.
