Articles published in the Ukrainian media, can be equated to foreign publications
The Order "On the publication of the results of the thesis for a doctor's degree and Ph.D." does not establish requirements for international scientometric databases.
This was stated in response to the request of the correspondent of IA "Naholos" by the Deputy Minister of Education, Youth and Sports Yevhen Sulima.
"If the article is published in the Ukrainian edition included in any international scientometric database, this publication will be treated as a foreign publication on the thesis" - quote from the response to a request.
It should be added that according to the order, the thesis for the degree of Doctor of Science requires at least 20 publications in scientific (including electronic) editions of Ukraine and other countries, including at least four publications in foreign journals or in Ukrainian journals, which are included in international scientometric databases.
Moreover, the thesis for the degree of Candidate requires at least five publications in scientific (including electronic) editions of Ukraine, including at least one article in foreign journals or in Ukrainian journals, which are included in international scientometric databases.
Last week, the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine registered the amandments to the already famous Order of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports № 1112 "On the publication of the results of the thesis for a doctor's degree and PhD."
Публикация в зарубежных научных журналах http://www.aspirans.com/publikatsii-v-zarubezhnykh-zhurnalakh становятся обязательными, похоже, с этим вскоре придётся смириться не только научному сообществу Украины, но и других государств постсоветского пространства. Готовимся, разбираемся в новых понятиях. Может, это и неплохо?
