The institute conducted a Faculty Development Programme (FDP) on January 7, 2019. The topic was Roadmap to Quality Publications in Management & Computer Science. The resource person was Prof. O. P Gupta, Professor, Marilyn Davies College of Business, University Of Houston-Downtown.
He highlighted the importance of writing quality research papers and gave a reviewers’ perspective on evaluation of research manuscripts. He told the participants that one should conform writing guidelines of research journals. He shared that not following the writing standard set by a journal is often the most common reason for rejection of papers. Prof. Gupta guided the participants while taking them through the different sections of a typical research paper, from Abstract to Conclusion.
He enunciated rejection is common in academic publishing, and should be taken positively, and learn from the valuable peer suggestion and observation.
