Workshop on Profiling Research Publications for Quality Research

3rd January 2012

Academics and Scientists engage in constant and continuous research activities help improve quality of life. Thus, originality in research is a requirement to fulfill the agenda given by society to academics and scientists.  Publication is an integral component in the research process. Publication reflects the character of innovative research and it is used as a yardstick to measure research contribution. Otherwise, we can state that research is assessed mainly through publication. Thus, research publications are practically used in tenures, promotion, funding and other related activities. Publications need to reflect the research carried out by a researcher completely. However, in reality many researchers particularly the young ones have difficulties in generating good research publications. There are many questions that remain to be answered.

How to produce qualitative research publication?

How to reflect the research carried out through the publication?

What is impact research?

What is the best way to disseminate research?

How to structure the research publication?

How to assess the reviewed publication?

What is indexed research?

How to integrate the research in the process of global review and indexing?

How to increase the research publication quality and record high research productivity?

The above list is a small fraction of questions in the research publication process. Young researchers need to be motivated to generate high quality research. They need to be focused on global reviewed and indexed research. To enable the researchers to understand the research publication process and to participate in the global research network, a training program will be conducted. This program, a kind of a workshop will discuss the ways to optimize the research publication activities. This workshop will discuss the structure of research publications, review and indexing process, methods of generating good publications, global databases, research networks and other required research publication activities.
