Your evidence are mostly reference letters. I also think that your evidence for the optional criteria 1 and 3 may not be strong enough. Certifications are not suitable evidence to demonstrate impact. I 'll suggest you check the Tech Nation Visa Guide for examples of evidence.

There are five eligibility criteria (1 mandatory an 4 optional criteria) You need to meet one mandatory and two optional criteria, I suggest you read the tech Nation guide to see which the criteria that speaks to your experience. You have listed some evidence that may fit into the mandatory and optional criteria, but you need to show the impact and other convincing information. I suggest you read the Tech Nation visa guide for guide on what to present.

Sure, thank you let me read it.

Hi All,

Can any buddy suggest my ph.d Journal publication will fulfill below Mandatory criteria

  • Published material in professional or major trade publications or major media about the applicant related to the applicant’s work in the digital technology sector. You must include the title, date and evidence that you are the author of such published material and any necessary translation."

Back when I applied, there was a clause that said that any publication that was necessary for the completion of an academic degree shouldn’t be included in publications. However, I couldn’t find that clause anymore. I am presuming the panel is now okay with adding publications that are part of PhD. However, it still has to be peer-reviewed publication with significant citations, for it to be considered relevant.

Thank you Shreeniwas,

My Journal was part of Ph.d academic and completed , i have published 3 international Journal with “Science Index” & 'Scopus ", only drawback is i don’t have much citations because of my topics or recently mapped with google scholars site.

Will they consider multiple Master degree ? (MCA, MBA, P.Mphil ) in same subject, apart from my Ph.d or is there any other way to prove my self ?

Thank you.

Will they consider multiple Master degree ?

I honestly don’t know.

Perhaps you can package all your educational qualifications and publications (regardless of citations) into a package and hopefully that comes across as strong evidence.

thank you so much for your guidance, let me try.

The other option now is to get your supervisor or an expert endorse your research. “Academic research must be endorsed by a recognised academic expert either through peer review in a recognised publication or endorsement from a leading senior academic who has supervised the individual directly”

Sorry not getting it what u means by endorsed ? Is it recommendation letter from my supervisor ?
My supervisor is holding Ph.d and working in Engineering college as a " Dean ", will that work out?

My 3 Journal are already Peer reviewed before published by Journal vendor.

Thank you…

It is a recommendation letter from your Supervisor that speaks about the world class research you have done. The letter is focused on your research not your person. He may focus on the novelty of your research, significance and impact and any additional information about your research work.

Please I will like to confirm if certifications are suitable as evidence of recognition
