Research Outputs & Creative Research Outputs 


Reporting of the institutional Research Outputs to DHET is one of the major activities of the RPS Directorate.  Annually DUT’s research outputs are collated and submitted to the DHET for the allocation of government subsidy to universities. This important activity accrues a significant amount of funding for the university from the government.  Academics and researchers are expected to participate actively by publishing journal articles, books, chapters or papers published in conference proceedings.

Subsequent to the research outputs policy DHET (DHET) has also developed a policy on the evaluation and recognition of creative outputs and innovations.

The purpose of these policies is to recognize and reward quality research/creative outputs and innovations produced by public higher education institutions.  The policies can be found here.  The individual researcher’s publications are reported to the Research Outputs office via the institutional electronic research administration system Elements
