Department of Higher Education and Training Accredited Publications

Among the lists, we would like to highlight the DHET list. Form this year, 2019, and as with all journals appearing in international indices, the DHET list will no longer contain journals appearing in SCIELO SA. As an approved index for purposes of research subsidy claims by the DHET, and among Scopus, ISI, IBSS and the Norwegian List, journals whose seat of publication is in South Africa will be removed from the DHET List if and when they appear in SCIELO-SA. This will be in line with all other South African journals appearing in other international indices that are approved by the DHET. That means, the affected journal will have to undergo and comply with the conditions; quality checks and, generally, stipulated publishing policy of the index of the listed journal.

The Department of Education defines an accredited/approved journal as follows:
Journals refer to peer-reviewed periodical publications devoted to disseminating original research and new developments within specific disciplines, sub-disciplines or field of study. These include original articles, research letters, research papers, and review articles. However, only approved journals are subsidised.

For your convenience we include a SEARCH ENGINE FOR ACCREDITED JOURNALS where ALL the accredited journal lists can be searched simultaneously. ~ (Courtesy of Corrie Breitenbach and Elize van Eldik, North-West University Library)
