About the Workshop

There is consistent demand on academicians to produce good quality research papers. This demand is institutionalized in the requirements laid down by the regulatory bodies and the strategic attempts by educational institutions to manage research. Keeping this demand in mind, the objective of this workshop is to unpack what constitutes a great research paper and outline the pleasures and pitfalls of writing it. With the help of some characteristic examples and activities, the workshop will serve as a practical guide to the art of writing papers.
