3 mn read

Publishing your research article in journals following NMC (MCI) Approved Indexing guidelines has become important for Faculty appointment and promotions in medical colleges in India. In this article we will give you the latest available information until 2021/2022 regarding what to check before submitting your research article to a journal and NMC/MCI guidelines for Indexed journals.

The National Medical Council (NMC), previously called Medical Council of India (MCI) is the ultimate authority in the formulation of regulations and laws regarding the education system at medical schools across the country. It has recommended minimum qualifications that are mandatory to be a candidate for appointment or promotions of faculty members in teaching post. The two primary requirements for promotion are duration of the service as well as the number of publications. This document, dubbed the “Minimum Qualifications for Teachers in Medical Institutions Regulations, 1998” was published with the requirements for publications in the year 2009. Since that time, it has been subject to periodic amendments. The most recent NMC/MCI modification was made through the Gazette Notification No. MCI-12(2)/ 2019-Med.Misc./189334 on February 12, 2020 regarding guidelines on Indexed journals for research article publication.
