Last date for submission of applications is = April 20th, 2020 (23.59 Pakistan Standard Time)

Note: The accreditation/recognition of journals will be valid for one year. All existing journals are also required to submit applications through the online system. In case of failure in compliance, they will not be made part of the new HEC Journal Recognition System (HJRS).

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
