Law

Description

The beginning of generally qualified academic incentive applications in Turkey is mainly as far as the TÜBITAK Turkey-Based International Scientific Publications Incentive Program (UBYT) dated 1993. This program was supported by the development grant implementation of 1995 and the regulation “Academic Evaluation and Quality Control in Higher Education Institutions” was enacted in 2002. In 2005, the “Higher Education Academic Evaluation and Quality Improvement Commission” was established. After this date the development allowance has been amended 7 times until 2014 by a decision of the Council of Ministers.

The law enacted on November 14, 2014 and the regulation enacted in 2015, the “Academic Incentive Regulation”, which entered into academic life, have brought with it many controversies. For academic incentive, separate regulations were issued for the first two years, no different regulations were issued in 2017; assessments were made for 2017 according to regulation issued at the end of 2016. In 2018, the system was again updated by the Council of Ministers on 14 May 2018 with the academic incentive Regulation No 2018/11834.

The rates and contributions initially proposed in the incentive scoring calculations were amended again in accordance with the President's Decree No. 2043 dated 16.01.2020 published in the Official Gazette No. 31011 dated 17.01.2020.

Both the 2018 and 2019 regulations reforming the academic incentive system have caused both legal and economic and ethical polemics.

This study specifically aims to examine the problematic changes in terms of time and conditions in 2018 and 2019, and to question where the system is going.
