E-mail Print PDF

Research publications enable the sharing of the findings with others so that they can benefit from the new knowledge which has been discovered. It also gives project findings the opportunity to be critically evaluated, reproduced and thus gains validity. Therefore, the way to reach the widest audience is to publish the findings in a reputed journal. However, some reputed journals charge publication fees. As such, the NSF initiated this new grant scheme to support the publication fees for Sri Lankan Scientists whose papers have been accepted by reputed journals indexed in the Science Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded and Social Science Citation Index, as an encouragement for them and to ensure greater visibility for their R & D activities
