Civilian and military personnel are appointed as Associate Fellows, Research Fellows and Senior Fellows under the Fellowship Scheme of the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (IDSA). The personnel under the Fellowship Scheme are required to publish articles; commentaries or book reviews; policy briefs and monographs or books. Research personnel who do not meet the benchmark are suitably counselled and the same is also reflected in their performance appraisal. The number of personnel under the Fellowship Scheme whohave not published a single article or report in the last 3 years is four.
