Publisher’s sheets

The number of publisher’s sheets is necessary to rate a publication to the scholarly and creative achievements of a given research unit.

Basing on the number of sheets, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education awards a certain number of score points (Regulation of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of 27 October 2015 on criteria and procedures for awarding scholarly categories to the research units):

Document type Number of sheets Score
monograph (to 3 authors) min. 6 25 lub 50*
monograph (more than 4 authors) min. 6 15 lub 30*
chapter in a monograph min. 0,5 5 lub 10*
entries in encyclopedic and dictionary publications min. 0,25 5


* if the monograph is particularly outstanding
