The Faculty of philosophy and literature develops a powerful research work, thanks to which we have positioned us as second largest number of sections of the campus Research Center for many years.
But this should not make us lose the pace of our research work, but quite the opposite. For this reason, from Dean launched the present programme of economic incentives for the encouragement of the dissemination and impact of the scientific quality of the Faculty of philosophy and letters (2012 Edition), with the aim of rewarding excellence in the publication of high-quality research that is carried out at our Center. Our faculty should clearly go for excellence in research, must pretend to be the best faculty by research and contribute even more to the improvement of the position of our University with regards to the international position of their research and their publications.
In this first edition did not want be restrictive and, together with the journals included in ISI-JCR, we want to also reward those works which have been published in Spanish journals with high impact factor; as well as monographs and chapters in book with international impact. We are aware of that, surely, in successive years, we restrict such aid to the work edited and reviewed exclusively in the JCR field, because the ultimate goal should be that. Pursued, in sum, encourage quality and academic impact, and not the amount of scientific production that takes place at the faculty.
It is a strategic measure that we believe necessary to perform in the current context of higher education in our country and wish its maintenance over time. In short, we intend to send a message clear: only with great impact (international and national) publications, we can improve our rates of research productivity and our faculty may become, in a few years, in a center of national and international benchmark for research and scientific publications of impact in the field of the humanities. This is our desire and, we believe, we must devote efforts.
