National Scientific Habilitation
The National Scientific Habilitation (ASN) is a necessary requirement to apply for permanent positions of Full and Associate Professor in Italian Universities. ANVUR is entrusted with assessing full professors applying for membership in the National Committees which examine candidates for both positions. ANVUR also proposes to the Ministry the minimum values of the indicators of scientific qualification used in the ASN procedure. Finally, ANVUR rates scientific journals in order to calculate such indicators in humanities and social sciences. The specific section of MIUR’s website concerning the ASN procedures is: http://abilitazione.miur.it/public/index.php.
For the journal rating, please refer to the relevant section of the Agency website (link).
