Mgr. Hedvika Novotná, Ph.D.

Priorities for the development of the SCAN research area:

1. Studies in AIS journals (proofreading, translation, open access, etc.)

2. Monographs (in Czech and English) in reputable publishing houses

3. Studies in influential national journals

4. Active participation in international conferences/seminars

5. Active participation in domestic conferences/seminars

6. Preparation of research projects/grants

7. Other publication costs

8. Organisation and co-organisation of conferences/seminars

9. Membership fees in professional organisations

10. Popularisation and application linked to own research activities, social relevance

Strategies for decision making:

  • Outputs and projects of members of the department, PhD students and other professional and scientific staff of FHS UK, which fall under the research area of SCAN and whose outputs correspond to the development of this research area, will be supported;

  • type 1 and 2 (or 3) applications should be prioritised among the FHS UK Strategic Priorities;

  • applications of type (3)4-10 should be addressed as a matter of priority to the SCAN discipline;

  • applications addressed to the SCAN research area, as well as unsuccessful applications from the Strategic Priorities, will be decided by the Board more or less in accordance with the SCAN priorities named above, but taking into account the significance of the outcome;

  • the Board of the research area may, at its discretion, reduce the funds requested.
