Approved by the joint decision of the IASHE Presidium
of 12.19.2011, Protocol No 17-11/7

Authenticated on behalf of the IASHE Presidium
by the Head of the Department of International Relations of the IASHE

12.19.2011 London, UK____________ Thomas Morgan


International Academy of Science and Higher Education
(London, UK)


for conducting championships (competitions) in research analytics

1. Goals and objectives of the project of carrying out research analytics championships

3. In implementing the project, the IASHE proceeds from understanding that it is the consolidation of scientists, their dialogue and mutual enrichment of each other's innovative ideas that makes true scientific progress and real saturation of society with constructive innovation technologies in various spheres of social life possible..

4. Through the project, the IASHE implements its position that lies in the fact that the participation in a kind of dialogue of various scientific schools and trends shall be especially beneficial for the development of science and education systems of various countries and particularly useful for developing ones, where for objective reasons, there are no sufficient opportunities for the organisation and financing of large-scale scientific researches.

5. As an inevitable concomitant effect associated with the project, the IASHE sees such development and informational interaction of national sciences in different countries, which would directly contribute to the quality of higher education in these countries.

2. Organizational basis of the project

1. The form of implementation of the project of the International Academy of Science and Higher Education is an interconnected set of systematised national and international research analytics competitions in various fields of science, having the form of remote (virtual) research conferences involving active communication (discussion) of authors, their mutual evaluation of each other's scientific works presented at the conferences (competitions) and competent expert analysis (assessment) of the quality and scientific importance of the works.

2. Using this evaluation system the champions and diploma winners of all calendar stages of intellectual competitions are determined, whose results are summarized and, following each respective year, expressed in the determination of champions and awardees of international, continental and national (regional) research analytics championships in various nominations. On the basis of rating and summary data obtained from the results of the competitions, special individual and "academic" rankings of research activity and effectiveness are formed and dynamically adjusted.

4. Structurally, the project requires the International Academy of Science and Higher Education involving regional partners who are willing and able to organise and support systematic competitions and associated events in their countries (regions).

6. Partnership between the IASHE and its national (regional) representative is executed with a special Agreement and a Certificate of an official representative of the IASHE.

7. If actions of demonstrate that he/she is unable to perform the functions entrusted to him within the project, or a partner discredits the project or cause other damage to it, the IASHE may at any time unilaterally deprive the corresponding legal or natural person of the partner's status and authority.

8. The IASHE may, in the case of the corresponding necessity, entrust the partnership functions of implementing the project in one country or a particular region to two or more persons and distribute authority among them at its discretion.

9. For the improper performance of entrusted functions, a partner bears responsibility provided for by international law and the law of the partner's country before the IASHE and participants of the project who were in any way affected by the misconduct of the partner.

3. Copyrights related to the project

4.The system of competitions

1. The terms "competition" and "championship" in these Regulations are identical and imply a mechanism of ordered interaction between the participants of the project, which results in the mechanism of promulgation, qualitative comparison and objective detection, based on expert evaluation, priority scientific works, as well as material and moral incentives for their authors.

5. Championships in research analytics of any level and type are held annually and formally start on January 1 of each year and end on December 31 of that year. Championships of any level and type are considered officially announced for a corresponding year only upon the IASHE announces them.

6. The start of each next (subsequent) championship of any level and type in relevant fields, sub-fields or problematic issues of traditional sciences is declared by the IASHE before December 20 of a current year in the presence of the necessary organizational conditions for it.

7. Individual regional championship, at the initiative of the IASHE and its corresponding national partners can be conducted with the use of specific rules and special schedule.

5. Mechanism of conduct of the competitions

1. Research analytics championships are announced and carried out in thematic sections, which are allocated according to the relevant fields of traditional sciences, and in some cases, upon decision of the IASHE, to some sub-fields or problematic issues of traditional sciences.

3. As a rule, championships of any level and type, in the case of their official announcement, are opened in all fields of traditional sciences.

5. Annually, when officially announcing in the current year the championships of relevant levels and types to be held in the next year, the IASHE publishes a calendar schedule of stages of the championships, and a full list of sections, in which will all competitions are to be held.

6. Every year, in order to objectively display the tendencies of development of modern science and provide scientists with additional opportunities for appropriate presentation and specification of the subjects of their researches, the IASHE may adjust the list of sections in which the championships of relevant levels and types are to be held in the next year.

7. An obligatory requirement for participation of any interested person at each stage of a championship of any level and type is his/her assessing of all the reports presented by other participants of the corresponding championships in a given section (the mechanism of mutual evaluation of each other's works).

8. The report of any participant of the championship, who has not evaluated works of other participants in the corresponding section during the current stage of the championship shall be dismissed from the competition at the current stage fixed as a report that is presented to the conference hors concours.

9. If a participant of a certain stage of the championship comments on reports presented by other participants of the championships in this section and other related sections from the perspective of the subject of scientific analysis, this will be considered a manifestation of a high professionalism, scientific interest, eagerness for discussion, as well as the goodwill of the person, who will be welcome and encouraged by the IASHE.

14. An announced championship of any level and type is carried out according to an initially planned schedule of the IASHE throughout a year, but official final results of the championship in individual fields of science and thematic sections are summarized only if all stages of the championships in sections actually took place (both in respect of presentation of works, and their proper evaluation) and were held on an alternative basis, with the participation of at least 10 competing thematic works of different authors at every stage.

15. Within each section of a championship of any level and type during a calendar year, three to ten stages may be carried out in accordance with a schedule previously approved and promulgated by the IASHE.

16. The number of stages within each thematic section of a championship of any level and type is previously defined by the IASHE and fixed in an officially published schedule, depending on the estimated number of potential participants of the championship, the complexity of the corresponding field of science, diversity and scale of its epistemological problems.

17. Following the results of each stage conducted in each section of a championship of any level and type, except for "open interdisciplinary sections", the winners, awardees and holders of special prizes, titles and rewards are defined.

18. Winners and awardees of individual stages of championships of any level and type are determined through ranking assessment of the participants' reports (articles) during the stages of the championships, which is composed in accordance with the rules established in these Regulations of expert ratings and ratings given by participants of the corresponding stages of the championships (the authors of reports (articles) are not allowed to vote for themselves).

19. Final winners and awardees of championships of any level and type are determined in accordance with the rules established in these Regulations by summing up the results of the participants of all stages of the championships held within a year.

20. In case any championship held within a year didn't meet the requirements of p. 13 of this chapter of the Regulations, final winners and awardees of such championships are not determined for this year in the corresponding sections.

21. Annual winners and awardees of championships within "open specialized sections" and "open interdisciplinary sections" are not determined.

22. In order claim the annual first place in a particular thematic section, a participant of a corresponding championship shall be "nominated", that is to officially announce his/her participation in the championship of the year in a specific section and take part in more than half of the stages of the championship in this section during the year.

23. Ratings of the reports (articles) presented at the stages of championships in "open specialized sections" are counted in forming general competition rankings of their authors, in the cases they were nominated in a specific thematic section of a corresponding championship. Presenting reports in "open specialized sections" also enhance the author's general competition rankings through heightening their "activity coefficient".

24. The reports submitted by the authors for the participation in the research analytics championships in the "open-specialized sections," as well as tournament results of this participation will be considered for the formation of UPRSRAranking (paragraph 35 of section 12 of this Regulation) of these authors by the nominated thematic sections as follows:

a) in the main part of the calculation formula of author’s UPRSRA ranking  by the nominated thematic sections are taken into account the results of his participation "in the open-specialized section" which meets the following criteria: this section should be of one level with the nominated thematic section (national, continental or global) and one specialized sector;

b) in the bonus part of the calculation formula of author's UPRSRA  ranking of nominated thematic sections are taken into account the results of his participation "in the open-specialized section" which meets the following criteria: this section should be of different level with the nominated thematic section and / or of different specialized sector.

25.The reports submitted by the authors for the participation in the research analytics championships of certain level in the "open-specialized section", as well as tournament results of such participation, are taken into account when calculating the main part of the UPRSRAranking formula of these authors by all nominated thematic sections of the same section and similar levels (provided simultaneous participation of these individuals in a certain level of championships in several nominated thematic sections).

26. Ratings of the reports (articles) presented at the stages of championships in "open interdisciplinary sections" are not counted in forming general competition rankings of their authors within the section they were nominated in. However, presenting reports in "open interdisciplinary sections" also enhance the author's general competition rankings through heightening their "activity coefficient".

27. Each participant of a championship of any level and type is not limited in the right to present his/her reports (articles) and be nominated in several thematic sections, and also may at each stage of the championship present up to three papers (articles) in one section (including "open specialized sections" and "open interdisciplinary sections").

28. In the event that any participant of a championship of any level and type is nominated in several thematic sections, and in addition, presents report (s) in "open specialized sections" or "open interdisciplinary sections", he/she may once in a year (without the right to review such a decision until the end of the year) choose a personal ranking in one of the nominated sections to which the ratings of the reports (articles) in "open specialized sections" or "open interdisciplinary sections" will be added. Such decision shall be made within 5 days upon the first presentation of the report (article) in any "open specialized section" or "open interdisciplinary section".

29. An interested person may independently choose the type of his/her participation in the project ("competition participant" or "conference participant"), the time of joining the project and leaving it, as well as the frequency (participation in all or some stages of the chosen levels and types of championships) and the scale of participation in the project (participation in one or more competitions of various levels and types; presentation of one or more reports (articles) in one or more sections, etc.), except for participation in international competitions of various levels and types regulated by the rules of Chapter 8 of these Regulations

30. The rules of simultaneous participation of interested persons in several competitions (or their stages) of various levels and types, as well as mandatory conditions, which are necessary to comply with in order to participate in international competitions of various levels and types are described in Chapter 8 of these Regulations.

31. The application form required to participate in the project, the rules for the presentation of reports (articles), as well as criteria for calculating the participant's registration fee and compensation for the cost of a collection of scientific works and postage are published on the corresponding websites of the project.

32. Any interested person may obtain free consultation on any matter relating to the project from the managers listed on the websites of the Academy or relevant national or regional championships.

33. Contact information of project managers and means of communication with them, as well as information on possible means, forms and details for paying for participation in the project are available on the corresponding websites.

34. Interstate regional championships are held at the initiative of either the IASHE or the relevant interested continental and/or national research analytics federations in accordance with the rules established by these Regulations in relation to continental championships. Interstate regional championships may be systemic, that is conducted gradually throughout a year, or consist of one or several stages by the decision of the initiators of interstate regional championships approved by the IASHE. Following the results of Interstate regional championships, winners and awardees are defined, but the results of such championships are not counted in forming official rankings of the IASHE and defining winners and awardees of World, continental and national championships. Interstate regional championships are conducted through the websites of the IASHE and the corresponding continental and/or national competitions.

35. Intrastate regional championships are held at the initiative of either the IASHE or the relevant interested national research analytics federations in accordance with the rules established by these Regulations in relation to national championships. Intrastate regional championships may be systemic, that is conducted gradually throughout a year, or consist of one or several stages by the decision of the initiators of intrastate regional championships approved by the IASHE. Following the results of Intrastate regional championships, winners and awardees are defined, but the results of such championships are not counted in forming official rankings of the IASHE and defining winners and awardees of World, continental and national championships. Intrastate regional championships are conducted through the websites of the corresponding national competitions.

36. Stages of championships of all levels (except for regional championships) are synchronized and held simultaneously in the same periods. Synchronous stages of national and continental championships and the World Championship in research analytics have the same field structure and sectional differentiation.

37. Interstate regional championships and intrastate regional championships, in accordance with the rules of these Regulations, are held in terms specially approved by the IASHE and have no direct synchronization with the stages of national and continental championships and the World Championship in research analytics.

38. In the initial period of the project, taking into account actual organizational and material circumstances that contribute to it, the IASHE may announce and conduct joint and open interstate regional championships instead of national, continental championships and the World Championship in research analytics regulated by these Regulations, in the status of competitions replaced by such regional championship or without such status.

39. Taking into account the rule set forth in p. 30 of this chapter of the Regulations, a championship of any level and type, if the necessary conditions for it appear, may be singled out of an ongoing joint and open interstate regional championship and held independently by a decision of the IASHE, if before the end of the year it is planned and actually possible to conduct at least three of its stages. In this case, the results of participants of such singled out championship are counted at the stages of the joint and open interstate regional championship are when summing up the results of the singled out championship and not counted with respect to the open interstate regional championship.

40. In the case that, taking into account the rule set forth in pp. 30 and 31of this chapter of the Regulations, a separate competition is singled out of a joint and open interstate regional championship by a decision of the IASHE, the joint and open interstate regional championship is converted by the IASHE into an appropriate format of competition (for example, in case of an actual change in the level, type and geography of the championship), and shall be conducted further of provided that a sufficient level of alternativeness of the competition is guaranteed.

6. Requirements for scientific works (reports, articles) admitted to the championships

2. A report is understood as a scientific work, which represents a report and analytical information consistently set out and interconnected in its constituent parts that fixes knowledge on a scientific research conducted by the author of the report, or with his/her participation, as well as on an evaluative interpretation of a scientific research, including one conducted without the participation of the author of the report, accompanied by the author's independent opinions on the subject of this research.

3. An article is understood as a scientific work, fixing an independent opinion of the author on a current scientific problem and methods of its solution supported by appropriate conclusions, as well as a statement (description) of a new scientific problem or actualization of a previously known scientific problem described by the author in a new context, with the suggestion of theoretical directions and/or methods of solution of such problems.

4. On the websites of the project, the function of prompt translation of materials into various languages is provided, that provides understanding of texts;

5. Each participant of a championship of any level and type may present an annotation to his/her scientific work in a language other than the primary language of this work, which allows to expand the potential range of persons able to learn the general content of the work, without resorting to mechanical translation. An annotation, which may be up to one page, is not included in the total volume of the report (article), placed free of charge with the work on the official website of the respective championship, but not published in the collections printed following the results of each stage of a championship of any level and type.

7. If the author of a scientific work (report, article) presented for participation in competitions of any level and type finds it difficult to translate the annotation and presentation of the report into English, translation will be done by employees of the IASHE or an official representative in the region for an additional fee, the amount of which is disclosed on the website of the corresponding championship.

8. If a participant of a championship of any level and type has rights and opportunities to present his/her scientific work (report, article) in one of two or more languages, it is recommended to choose the language that allows understanding of the work without the use of mechanical translation by a broader audience. This choice of a language potentially can provide a greater understanding of the work by other participants and experts of the corresponding stage of the competition and, thus, positively influence its final evaluation.

9. A person participating in two or more competitions of any level and type at once, may present identical works in corresponding languages to the competitions of various levels. However, it is prohibited to present identical works (articles, reports) to different stages of the same specialized competition in the same or related thematic sections.

10. The size of a scientific work (article, report) presented for a championship of any level and type, including illustrations and tables, should be no less than 2 and no more than 7 typewritten pages (computer printed text).

11. In the event that for the full disclosure of the research topic, the person needs more than 10 pages formatted according to the rules of these Regulations, he/she should synchronously, within the same stage and same section of a corresponding championship, present the work in two or more interrelated reports (articles) containing references to each other. In this case, each report presented in this way is regarded as an independent scientific work and evaluated on a general basis, therefore the authors of related works should make them relatively autonomous in the content, consistent and complete.

13. Each illustration to a work (article, report) presented to a championship of any level and type shall be sent as a separate file to the email address indicated on the website of the corresponding championship. We recommend sending black and white illustrations, because in a collection of scientific works they will be published in black and white. Please note that the quality of published illustrations depends on electronic originals sent by participants.

14. Schemes, graphs, charts, formulas and tables used directly in the texts of reports (articles) or attached to the texts shall be made directly in a text editor and placed strictly within the page sizes indicated above.

15. Intratextual footnotes are published in collections of scientific works, but not on the websites of the corresponding championships.

17. Scientific works (reports, articles) submitted by interested persons to the championships of any type and level are not censored, corrected or edited, except for the formatting required to prepare a work for publication in a collection.

18. The author of a scientific work (report, article) submitted to the championships of any type and level bears personal responsibility for the observance of copyrights of any interested persons which may be affected by the publication of the work, as well as the observance of the rights and lawful interests of persons mentioned in any form in the corresponding report or article.

19. The author of a scientific work, without appealing to the IASHE, its official partners and other authorized persons on the corresponding occasion, personally suffers possible consequences of presenting the work to a championship of any level and type in an inappropriate scientific and narrative quality, as well as with spelling, punctuation and style errors or misprints.

20. The presentation of a work (article, report) to a championship of any level and type in an inappropriate form entails consequences specified in these Regulations.

21. Scientific works (reports, articles), in order to participate in the championships of relevant levels and types, within an officially announced term of a corresponding stage of a championship, are published on the website of the corresponding championship in a way specified on the site.

22. Scientific works (reports, articles) may be presented to the championships of relevant levels and types by sole authors or collectives of authors. The concept of evaluation of scientific works (reports, articles) in the project implies a somewhat greater comparative value of scientific works (reports, articles) presented by individual authors than those of collectives of authors. This circumstance, other things related to the assessment of quality of a corresponding research and its scientific importance being equal, implies a presumption of the fact that the sole creation of a scientific work (report, article) objectively requires of the author, to a certain extent, a somewhat greater intellectual and physical effort, as well as material and time expenditure than the effort and expenditure required from each member of a group of authors. However, the criterion of quantitative composition of the authors of a scientific work (report, article) is not a determining factor in the evaluation system used in the project, and has a certain significance only in the comparison of scientific works (reports, articles) of an approximately equal quality.

7. Organization and status of internal communities of the project

1. Research Analytics Federations of any level are formal social associations (communities) of scientific analysts created under the IASHE and under its auspices, by a simple, not bound by additional terms and conditions, except for the objective territorial and national affiliation of entities, entering into their composition of persons wishing to participate in research analytics competitions subject to conditions specified in these Regulations.

3. A Research Analytics Federation of any level and type is considered formed upon the entry of the tenth member.

4. Research Analytics Federations of any level are structured into sections and subsections according to fields and sub-fields of sciences presented in the federations by their respective members - scientists.

5. At the end of 12 months from the date of formation of each research analytics federation of any every level, its members, subject to strict compliance with the Statute, these Regulations, statutory documents and other internal documents of the IASHE are entitled to organize themselves: to adopt internal operational rules, to elect administrative bodies and to represent own consolidated position with regard to conducting research analytics competitions in relationships with the IASHE and other federations.

8. Persons not wishing to join the relevant research analytics federations and, consequently, to participate in research analytics championships as contestants, may present their reports (articles) at various thematic stages of competitions in the status of out-of-competition participants of international scientific conferences.

9. Any interested person becomes a member of a relevant research analytics federation from the moment of application for participation in the championship of a corresponding level and type, and retains that status during the entire period of participation in the project until the end of six months from the date of the last participation of such a person in any stage of a championship of a corresponding level and type.

8. Participants of the competitions and forms of representation

1. To participate in the World Championship in research analytics (hereinafter the World Championship), a scientist must meet the requirements made by these Regulations to the participants of the World Championship in research analytics, be a citizen of any state of the world or a stateless person residing anywhere on the Earth, but be a member of a continental research analytics federation.

2. To participate in any continental championship in research analytics (hereinafter continental championship), a scientist must meet the requirements made by these Regulations to the participants of a continental championship in research analytics, be a citizen of any state of the corresponding continent or a stateless person residing anywhere on the Earth, but be a member of a national research analytics federation, which is a member of a corresponding continental research analytics federation.

3. To participate in any national championship in research analytics (hereinafter national championship), a scientist must meet the requirements made by these Regulations to the participants of a national championship in research analytics, be a citizen of a corresponding state or a stateless person residing anywhere on the Earth, but be a member of the national research analytics federation.

4. To participate in any officially announced regional championship, a person must meet the requirements set forth in p. 4 of this chapter of the Regulations.

5. To obtain the status of a participant of a research analytics championship of all level and type, subject to other mandatory conditions set forth in these Regulations, a person must be at least 16 years old, have an official higher education legally obtained in an educational institution of any country in the world and systematically engage in scientific research.

6. Any interested person obtains the status of a participant of a research analytics championship of any level and type on the basis of information he/she presents in an official application for participation in the competition.

7. The IASHE does not require interested persons to provide documentary evidence of the information they include in their applications for participation in championships, relying on their honesty and understanding of the fact that in the sphere of research analytics misleading the organizers, experts and other participants of the championships as to one's academic status is unreasonably, because the quality of reports (articles) presented by such persons objectively characterize such a status. For the same reason, and taking into account the initial democratism of scientific creativity, the IASHE does not require participants of research analytics championships of various levels and types to be official holders of academic degrees and titles, as well as to have a considerable pedagogical practice, for formal scientific status of individuals often are not objective evidence of quality or novelty of their researches, and truly brilliant scientific ideas can be produced by experienced practitioners and talented researchers who are not directly related to formal science.

8. Each participant of championships of any level and type shall be personally liable under the rules of international law and relevant national legislations for the validity of personal information given to the organizers of the project, factual information given in reports (articles) as well as for complying with copyright and neighbouring rights.

11. Persons who have used in their scientific works presented in the project and comments to their reports and the reports of other participants of the project unethical or incorrect expressions, statements and images, and other unethical manifestations, may be dismissed by the decision of the IASHE from further participation in competitions of the corresponding level and type or be subjected to disciplinary sanctions approved by the IASHE;

12. Persons presenting scientific works in the competitions, which due to their quality level (understood as a set of signs of logic, independence of research, phraseology, spelling, and the argumentativeness and legitimacy of statements) do not meet the minimum acceptable requirements for such works generally accepted in scientific community, by the recommendation of members of the Expert Panel and on the basis of the decision of the IASHE may be dismissed from further participation in competitions of the corresponding level and type or be subjected to disciplinary sanctions approved by the IASHE;

13. Persons who have placed in their scientific works presented in the project and comments to their reports and the reports of other participants of the project an obviously advertising information, which is not required in the text by the logic of scientific research and related argumentation, may be dismissed by the decision of the IASHE from further participation in competitions of the corresponding level and type or be subjected to disciplinary sanctions approved by the IASHE;

14. The accession of interested persons to the project in any status established by these Regulations implies the consent of these persons to participate in the project in full compliance with the rules of these Regulations.

9. Participation in several competitions at the same time

1. Any participant of the project may participate in one or more competitions of one or more levels and types.

2. Parallel participation in several competitions, in accordance with the rules provided in these Regulations, allows an interested person to compete with other project participants in several nominations at once, depending on the sections and levels of competitions he/she has chosen, thus greatly increasing the person's chances for successful individual results, the expansion of bibliography and growth of personal scientific prestige.

4. In some cases, in accordance with the previously published rules approved by the IASHE, the participation of an interested person in an interstate regional championship in a corresponding section may be caused by the necessity of the parallel participation in the corresponding national championship in the same section.

10. Collections of scientific works and information and presentation publications

2. Every year the IASHE publishes information and presentation collections "Bronze Globe of Thought" containing the best scientific works in each section of the championships held during the year, divided into parts corresponding with the levels of the championships and determination of their winners, awardees, holders of incentive prizes, as well as experts.

3. Every year the IASHE publishes the summary (universal) information and presentation collection "Bronze Globe of Thought" containing scientific works of only winners and awardees of national and continental championships, as well as the World Championship in research analytics of the corresponding year, with brief bibliographic information and photographs of the winners and awardees, as well as information on higher education institutions that became winners and awardees of the IASHE rankings.

4. Every year the IASHE publishes the summary (universal) information and presentation collection "Golden Globe of Thought" containing scientific works of only winners of national and continental championships, as well as the World Championship in research analytics of the corresponding year, with the list of the winners and awardees, as well as the experts of the stages and final championships of all levels and types held during the year, bibliographic information and photographs of the final winners and awardees of championships of all levels and types, as well as the full information on the rankings formed by the IASHE, presentation of the higher education institutions that became winners and awardees of the rankings in various nominations, as well as the whole analytical information related to the project.

5. Every year the IASHE publishes the gift information and presentation edition " Diamond Facets of Analytical Science", which contain the following information in alphabetical order divided by fields of science: photographs and presentation details of the winners and awardees of the championships held during the year, the significant scientists who took part in competitions of various levels and types, as well as the leading experts who participated in the project and the heads of the universities that became the winners and awardees of the IASHE rankings in various nominations.

6. The IASHE annually publishes the collections and information and presentation directories indicated in pp. 2-5 of this chapter of the Regulations on the basis of the official announcement of their preparation for publication in the presence of the necessary organizational, information and material conditions.

7. The collections indicated in p. 1 of this chapter of the Regulations shall be published within 1.5 – 2 months upon summarizing results of corresponding stages of championships of various levels and types.

8. The collections and information and presentation directories indicated in pp. 2-5 of this chapter of the Regulations shall be published within 2.5 – 3 months upon the dates indicated in the official announcements of their preparation for publication.

9. The periods of postal or courier delivery of collections and information and presentation directories to interested persons are not included in the terms specified in pp. 7, 8 of this chapter of the Regulations and depend only on postal and courier services of corresponding countries.

10. In addition to those specified in the rules of this chapter of the Regulations, the IASHE may issue other analytical, information and presentation and reference publications, using information related to the championships of different levels and types or directly deriving from them.

11. Types of intermediate and final results

1. All results determined in the process of conducting research analytics championships of various levels and types are divided according to the level of their significance and finality into intermediate and final results.

2. Intermediate results are rating and ranking points formed and / or corrected in the way set out in these Regulations following each stage of a championship of any level and type, on whose basis the awardees and winners of these stages are determined, as well as the statement of a list of winners is made.

3. Final results are summary rating and ranking points formed and / or corrected in the way set out in these Regulations following all stages of a championship of any level and type, on whose basis the awardees and winners of these championships are determined, as well as the statement of a list of winners is made.

4. Intermediate and final results may have an individual, collective, and ranking nature.

5. An individual result implies defining the total value of the rating and the associated number of a participant of a championship of any level and type, both at an individual stage of the championship and following its annual results.

6. A collective result implies the determination of a certain total result of participation in a championship of any level and type of a certain set of persons (community) formally interrelated this way or another. A collective result is defined for each community, both at an individual stage of a championship of any level and type and following its annual results.

8. A ranking result is a total, calculated using special mathematical formulas, collective result of the participation of representatives of individual higher education institutions or higher education institutions of individual countries or continents in championships of any level and type under a corresponding ranking type established the IASHE.

12. International experts, expert evaluation and assessment of scientific works by participants of the championships

1. To be an expert within the project, a person should have a high level of knowledge and skills in the relevant field of science and be capable of objective comparative study and evaluation of field-specific scientific works (reports, articles). Expert are specially invited by the IASHE, its official representatives or other authorized persons to participate in determining the results of research analytics championships of various levels and types.

2. The sphere of expert control is the scope of scientific works (reports, articles) which a certain expert is authorized by the IASHE to study and professionally evaluate.

3. Each person involved in the project as an expert receives an appropriate Certificate of an international expert of the IASHE.

4. In order to perform expert evaluation of each stage of a championship of any level and type, as a rule, the IASHE invites no less than 3 and no more than 7 experts that make up expert groups for a specific sphere of expert control.

5. The experts assess scientific works (reports, articles) on a 0-10 rating scale.
