The Faculty Research Office encourages emerging and established researchers to start compiling their NRF rating applications.
|NRF Rating Opportunity: Background||
We would like to invite interested candidates to engage with us in getting ready to submit applications in response to the Call:
The NRF rating system is part of the NRF’s goal to build a globally competitive science system in South Africa, and benchmarks the quality of our researchers against the rest of the world. NRF ratings consider a researcher’s recent research outputs and impact as perceived by international peer reviewers. The rating system encourages researchers to publish high quality outputs in high impact journals/outlets. Rated researchers as supervisors will impart cutting-edge skills to the next generation of researchers.
Ratings are based primarily on the quality and impact of research outputs over the past eight years, as evaluated by local and international peers. The rating system identifies researchers who are leaders in their fields and recognises the production of high quality research outputs. Several South African universities use the outcomes of the NRF evaluation and rating process to position themselves as research-intensive institutions, while others provide incentives for their staff members to acquire and maintain a rating and give special recognition to top-rated researchers.
The ratings that are awarded fall within the following categories:
A – Leading international researchers
B – Internationally acclaimed researchers
C – Established researchers
P – Prestigious Awards
Y – Promising young researchers
|How to apply||
The NRF rating system can be completed on the NRF Online Submission system https://nrfsubmission.nrf.ac.za/nrfmkii/ The call for ratings has opened until the 15th of November 2021, we encourage prospective applicants to start compiling the online CV section and established researcher to update their online CVs. Once your rating application has been completed online, the Faculty of Health Sciences’ internal review panel will provide feedback. Once approved, the application will be submitted to the NRF. The internal review panel may also decide to hold back an application in order to strengthen the application. The review panel will provide feedback that will become your strategic research plan.
The Research Office will host two information sessions of approximately 2 hours each. We invite you to attend either of the sessions. The sessions will include an overview of the rating application and the requirements of the NRF as well as a discussion aimed at promoting self-evaluation and identifying a structure for your rating application. We encourage emerging researchers and currently/previously rated researchers to attend.
