TGM WRI Collection of Papers – is published since 2006 and is aimed at both contributions of collection character, as well as monographs.

Currently, publishing becomes increasingly important in the field of research. Its primary mission is to present the results of research work, both in prestigious journals for foreign and domestic experts.

For this purpose, the T. G.

Research Results and Other Professional Outputs

Evaluation of profficiency of solving of research projects solved by TGM WRI, p.r.i., arises from evaluation of outputs entered into and kept in Information System of Research, Development and Innovation (R&D IS), comprising among others, Information Register of R&D Results (RIV).

This evaluation is performed in a frame of R&D evaluation process. The outputs are evaluated yearly according to the actual governmental research and development evaluation methodology.

Research organizations are evaluated on the basis of their outputs filled in RIV.

Until the end of 2017, there were three categories of outcomes. They were:

  • publishing results,
  • results of applied research and
  • other results.

Since 1st January 2018, there are two categories:

  • publishing results and
  • non-publishing results.

Each of these types is subsequently divided into separate categories of outputs, of which some are rated.

Evaluation of profficiency of solving of technical projects of commercial character and other professional activities of TGM WRI, p.r.i., is fully in competence of customers of the Institute.

In order to obtain an overview of the technical outputs developed by employees of the Institution, internal institutional database was set up. All authors can enter their outputs into this database througout the year, including those that are regularly exported as research outputs to the RIV.
