Excellence Publication Scheme

The Excellence Publication Scheme aims to encourage UM academic staff excellent in research to publish their specialized research outcomes in world-class publishing platforms in their respective fields. The support for each project will last for up to one year. Each successful candidate will receive funding for appointing substitute teachers to alleviate teaching workloads of the fellows. It can also cover some of their publishing expenses or costs of attending international academic conferences for themselves or their postgraduate students.

Candidates should have completed the main body of their works to be published. In other words, at least 80% of a book or the first draft of a research paper should have been finished. Ideally, publication contracts, initial assessment and revision requirements should be provided.

Fellows will still work in their original units, but should actively participate in the IAS academic activities, and timely submit academic outputs to the office of the institute for record as required.
