IIUI ASA disappointed at HEC's ad

ISLAMABAD, June 19(Daily Times): The Academic Staff Association (ASA) of the International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) has expressed disappointment at the Higher Education Commission's (HEC) advertisement showing zero research by the IIUI. In a press statement on Monday, ASA President Prof Arshad Zia said that research articles of the IIUI faculty were frequently published, even in the HEC-recognised journals in 2006, but these were not noted for the list of research productivity.

Speaking at a dinner arranged by the ASA to celebrate the HEC's decision to upgrade the university's faculty, Dr Anwar Hussain Siddiqui, the IIUI president, said there might be some flaws in rating universities' research productivity, but the HEC advertisement had alerted the teachers and researchers to the need of enhanced efforts in the field of research and publication. He said there was no excuse for the university teachers not to show their output, as research publications were frequently appearing these days.
