Credits are granted on the basis of a published research paper/monograph. When the course is taken in the last semester before dissertation defense, accepted manuscript is sufficient. Publication must be recorded in IS MU and should be marked for inclusion into the National register of research outcomes (aka "RIV") - unless the student is employed outside of MU in a research project lead by their supervisor. Number of credits reflects the type and language of the publication. Typically, the following credits are granted: 1. 20 credits for a research paper written in English (or another major language) and published in a journal registered in Web of Science, monograph or a chapter in a monograph published by a reputable international publisher. 2. 10 credits for a research paper written in a minor language and published in a journal registered in Web of Science, monograph published outside of major international publisher 3. 7 credits for a paper published in a journal registered in SCOPUS. Credit is not given for publications in predatory journals/publishers. Number of credits is reduced according to the contribution of the student to a multi-authored paper (and is rounded up to a whole number if necessary).
