School of Education, Sharda University is conducting a Five-Day online FDP on ‘Designing and Process of Writing Research Papers in High Quality Scopus Indexed International Journals.’ on 7th – 11th December 2020.

Writing a research paper may appear daunting and remain unfinished for months. The task of writing is not as stressful as it seems. This workshop on research paper writing will make the entire process of writing an interesting and a rewarding experience. This workshop will help you to communicate your ideas in an organized manner acceptable by the academic fraternity.
A great deal of value is involved to publish a high-quality research paper. Besides PhD, small scale research projects can be taken up to produce scientific research papers. Ph.D. research scholars are required to publish minimum of 2 research papers in refereed journals before the submission of the thesis. Some of the UG/PG students are also interested in publishing the papers to get the financial assistance for doing masters/Ph.D. in foreign countries. A substantive research effort is involved in writing a research paper by a large number of researchers and by industry experts. However, several researchers do not know how to write a research paper with the result that a large number of papers are being rejected by the peer reviewed quality journals. Writing a research paper is an art as well as a sophisticated knowledge-based skill. Very few among the academia understand the finer nuances involved in writing a research paper which is publishable in a high-quality refereed journal. This workshop is expected to fill up this gap to some extent.
