PubCheck is a calculator application, developed by office of the Director General of Armed Forces Medical Services, by means of which an author can check whether a published Medical Research article is acceptable for promotion in academic appointments as per the Policy of National Medical Commission of India.
This application enables the authors to check whether an article is acceptable by National Medical Commission (NMC). Only acceptable articles are considered valid publications which are mandatory for promotion as faculty in a Medical College/Teaching Hospital.
There have been changes in regulations of the NMC, (Erstwhile MCI), pertaining to acceptability of publications in the past few years in terms of type of article, indexing agencies, authorship etc.
The number of years of teaching experience required for promotion from Asst Professor to Associate Prof and for Associate Professor to Professor with & without publications differ. The clause of 'Senior Resident' for 'Clinical Subjects' and of 'Demonstrator for pre & Para-clinical subjects' have also been included with age relaxation from 40 yrs to 45 yrs for a 'Senior Resident’s Appointment'.
Parameters for accepting the articles have been incorporated in this calculator. Researchers/Authors can use the calculator's six step input sections to check whether the article is acceptable.
Kindly read the instructions given in the Information page.
