SRINAGAR: One-week Workshop on ‘The Art of Writing a Research Paper’ commenced at Islamic University of Science and Technology on Wednesday. The event being organized by the Department of Management Studies will focus on guiding the scholars through various stages of publication of a research paper – selection of the broad area, identification of research gap, design of research approach and methodology, presentation of results, submission of a paper to the journal, creating revisions and responses to reviewer comments.
While addressing the participants, Dr. Asif Iqbal Fazili, Head Department of Management Studies, highlighted the growing significance of research in the contemporary academic arena besides underscoring its nuances in the backdrop of the New Education Policy, 2020. He also brought to the fore the earnest need for the workshop as several scholars, though well equipped with the knowledge of methodological tools of research, find themselves floundering while trying to transform their academic learning into meaningful scholarly output.
Dean Research Professor Haroon R. Naik, while delivering the inaugural address, congratulated the Department of Management Studies for providing this much needed platform to the scholars on an oft-neglected but, nevertheless, most pertinent aspect of research. He advised the scholars to make the best use of this opportunity in order to produce insightful research articles that are relevant not just to academia but the society as well.
The inaugural function concluded with vote of thanks by Dr. Anisa Jan, Associate Professor, Department of Management Studies, IUST.
