WORKSHOP BRIEF

Topic 1: Academic Publishing—Writing, Submission, and Successful Publication

This presentation is primarily targeted toward researchers who wish to submit their papers to top-notch international journals but face difficulty with the correct usage of language and grammar. In a system where experts from respective fields need to assess the validity, significance, and originality of the described work, it is imperative that the language quality of the articles submitted to such journals is good to avoid rejection at the peer review stage. Unfortunately, many papers that do not satisfy internationally accepted language requirements are rejected by the journal editors themselves and do not even reach the stage of peer review.

After this session, you will have more information about the following:

·         1) Awareness of publishing papers in English and structuring of academic papers

·         2) Importance of literature review and structuring of reference lists

·         3) Importance of providing pointers while writing content and effectively using academic English in your papers

·         4) Preparing your paper for publication and journal selection

·         5) Discussion about the manuscript submission process

Topic 2: Presenting at International Academic Conferences

Presenting at conferences is an important part of scientific communication and can considerably enhance a researcher’s career prospects. Addressing a large audience can be quite a daunting experience, especially for early-stage researchers. This presentation will provide basic principles which will help researchers create a good presentation and deliver it successfully.

After this session, you will have more information about the following:

·         Guidelines on selecting a relevant conference

·         Principles behind writing abstracts for conferences

·         Planning and collating the content of the presentation

·         Brief overview of how slides should be designed

·         Advice regarding answering questions at the end of the presentation
