The professional advancement of scientific and pedagogical employees is the awarding of the academic title of professor. Of course, for this you need to go the hard way and meet all the required conditions. Next, let's imagine what exactly should be done and how many articles should be presented in scientific publications in order to get a professor in Ukraine.
To receive the title of professor, it is necessary for a researcher to be an employee of a higher education institution, including postgraduate education, which carries out educational activities in their specialty at a high level. There are the following criteria for evaluating applicants for this title:
Academic councils decide who should be given the title of professor. This body is guided by the fact that all the criteria should be met, and that in the university where the future professor works, more than 6 employees specializing in the same field as he/she works should vote in favor of awarding him/her the title. And they must also hold the titles: Ph.D., or professor.
After checking all the information about the researcher and analyzing all the necessary data, the Academic Council makes a decision. It must be approved by the Ministry of Education and Science. It is important that in a secret ballot ¾ of the votes were cast in favor of the future professor. After that, an attestation case is drawn up, and the professor is awarded a certificate (issued by the MES), which is a confirmation of the level of professional qualification, and also affects the salary and the opportunity to get a new position in the university.
According to the Procedure for awarding academic titles to scientific and scientific-pedagogical workers, it is necessary for such a worker to publish at least 10 works in English, in publications that are included in the WoS and Scopus science databases, and to which an ISSN number has been assigned (it must be confirmed on the website of the International Periodicals Registration Center). The last point does not apply to persons who have a Group I disability.
