How to search


Articles in accredited journals are recognised research output which meet specified criteria and therefore quality for subsidisation by the Department of Higher Education and Training.

This database is compiled from the 5 lists received from the DHET. We tried to identify the titles with an Open Acces status, however there might be titles that we have missed.


Do you need more information? Are you uncertain about any title? Contact Teresa Smit (Research Support) at +27 (0)18 299 4853 or send her an email at teresa.smit@nwu.ac.za.

You are also welcome to contact your Faculty Librarian for help.
