Research Incentive Program

Starting September 2017, Parker University has implemented a research incentive program of cash awards to non-research faculty, staff and students for their involvement in research. The program is designed to encourage participation in research and help shape the research culture of the University.

Faculty, students, and staff of the University (who are not dedicated research personnel) are eligible for participation in the program. Co-authors who are not from Parker are not eligible.

To be considered for an award, participants must submit an application. Awards will vary with the level of difficulty associated with the work as follows:

 

Peer reviewed journal publication:

Eligible journals include only professional scientific or biomedical peer-reviewed indexed journals. It would not include trade journals like the association journals or lay professional magazines. Where the issue of peer-review or indexed is subject to some interpretation of question, the research committee will make the final determination. Authors are encouraged to communicate with the Director of Research or Research Committee before submitting the paper for publication.

  • To qualify the work must acknowledge Parker University.
  • The publication must be in a peer-reviewed research journal (works like Dynamic Chiropractic, Chiro-online.com, trade journals, etc., are not eligible).
  • The publication must be in its final print or electronic “published” form (works “in press” or “under review” are not eligible).
  • Faculty and staff may only apply within twelve months after publication.
  • Persons external to Parker University are not eligible.
  • Only one bonus is paid per publication.
  • The University recognizes any Parker University author (not just the primary author) may submit a research paper for bonus award consideration. If multiple authors (within or outside Parker University) collaborated on the publication, the bonus will be distributed between authors as they determine with only are eligible Parker employees receiving the incentive.
