WU Journal Ratings & Performance Bonus

WU’s per­form­ance bo­nuses for aca­demic staff are reg­u­lated by the Op­er­a­tional Agree­ment on Per­form­ance Bo­nuses and Ex­am­in­a­tion Rates for Aca­demic Staff  (Be­triebsver­ein­bar­ung zur Re­gel­ung der Leis­tung­sprämien und Prüfung­staxen für das wis­senschaft­liche Uni­versitätsper­sonal ) that was ne­go­ti­ated with the Aca­demic Staff Coun­cil and entered into ef­fect on Janu­ary 1, 2016. Sec­tions 2 and 4 of this op­er­a­tional agree­ment spe­cify new reg­u­la­tions for per­form­ance bo­nuses and name two types of bo­nuses: (a) bo­nuses for Star journal pub­lic­a­tions (§ 2) and (b) bo­nuses for out­stand­ing re­search achieve­ments spe­cific to in­di­vidual or­gan­iz­a­tional units (§ 4). These two types of bo­nuses have re­placed the earlier per­form­ance bo­nus sys­tem for aca­demic staff that was based on the 2009 WU Journal Rat­ing. WU has also is­sued de­tailed guidelines (in Ger­man) on how the pro­vi­sions of the op­er­a­tional agree­ment are to be im­ple­men­ted.

Star journal list

A bo­nus of € 3,000 is paid out for each article pub­lished in a journal from the Star journal list (Star journal list)

De­part­ment-spe­cific journal rank­ings

In ad­di­tion to the WU Star journal list, every de­part­ment has its own de­part­ment-spe­cific journal rank­ing that serves as the basis for award­ing per­form­ance bo­nuses for journal articles pur­su­ant to the op­er­a­tional agree­ment. The de­part­ments’ in­di­vidual rank­ings and dir­ect­ives on per­form­ance bo­nuses are avail­able on FIDES . Please use the forms in the fol­low­ing links for spe­cial ap­plic­a­tions like e.g. bo­nuses based on the old rat­ing (ap­plic­a­tion form old rat­ing,in Ger­man) or ap­plic­a­tions for former WU em­ploy­ees or pro­ceed­ings/text­books (Star journal list form).

Please use the fol­low­ing link to down­load a tem­plate form for award­ing de­part­ment-spe­cific per­form­ance bo­nuses.
