Results of scientific research can be communicated either through written papers and/or thesis or through oral presentations in the form lectures or scientific talks. The former is comparatively tough as it required technical skills, organization and in-depth knowledge of the subject being communicated. Researchers and students and in certain cases even professionals of high caliber some time face difficulties of how to effectively communicate what they did, why and how they did and what they have achieved. Student and researchers face this difficulty more than anybody else. It is particularly for this community and for other professionals (in general) who are engaged in scientific communications, that a course is being arranged with a focus on how effectively, clearly and perfectly one can communicate to others: the results of their scientific endeavors, be it a thesis research or a scientific paper to be sent to a peer review journal.
The objectives of the course are thus, to understand,
A research document?
What is introduction and how effectively to introduce selected topic, review of literature related with this topic and Significance of review of literature
Summaries the research findings
Abstract the research findings,
Write summary and Differentiate between abstract and summary
Write conclusion and finally
Write the bibliography
Ph.D., M. Phil., and M, Sc thesis
The course will be largely imparted through interactive lecture and discussions, followed by workshops aiming at exchanging knowledge/difficulties encountered and to learn about the current and state of the art techniques required/utilized or being utilized for effective scientific writing. There would be two different but brief workshops around
Ph. D, M.Phil and M.Sc. students
who are writing or preparing to write their thesis and/or scientific papers for peer review Journals. Their problems/difficulties (if any) would be discussed through "to the point and focused" questions for which the possible answers would be provided by the moderator.
At the end, there would be a brief but crisp exercise on preparing an abstract. Certificate will be distributed to all the participants.
Who should attend:
Student writing or preparing to write their thesis
Students or professionals preparing to write scientific papers
Teachers, faculty members and members of supervisory committees of various categories of thesis research
