Islamabad, November 07, 2016 (PPI-OT): It has been noticed with grave concern that a multidisciplinary Sciences discipline journal entitled “Science International” is publishing most of the Social Sciences papers without taking recognition from Social Sciences Section of Academic Division of the Higher Education Commission (HEC).
The Editor of the Journal was repeatedly informed through letters and emails to refrain from publishing Social Sciences papers/articles, however on continuous violation of HEC instructions the Journal has been derecognized with effect from September 23, 2016.
Therefore, students, researchers and faculty members are advised not to publish their papers in “Science International” Journal as papers published in this Journal will not be counted/considered for PhD degree attestation, faculty appointment, faculty promotion and other such purposes.
