The Vice –Chancellor requested the Office of Research and Development to develop a paper on rewarding article publications in highly rated peer reviewed journals, as a means of encouraging Lecturers and Researchers in EKSU to publish their articles in highly reputable journals.

Publications in such journals will put our University on the world map of research and portray EKSU as a centre of excellence in research and development. The Senate of the University has given the proposal an “approval in principle”. EKSUORD is awaiting the final approval to enable it commence administration of the award.
