Seminar on "Knowledge Dissemination Through Journal Publications"
The Seminar on "knowledge Dissemination Through Journal Publication" held on 28thSeptember 2011 mainly dealt with issues related to
research and journal publication in various academic domains. Following are the
some of the important insights shared by the paper presenters.
What are the main
criteria to consider the internationality of a journal?
international data base
distribution of the editorial board members
distribution of articles
of the ways to increase the visibility factor of a journal is to include
foreign experts. In recent time there is a sharp increase in the visibility of
research from the third world countries.
What are the some of
the key issues in writing a research paper and publishing it?
ØTo know the problem
that is researched on
ØThe role played by the
university or the institution
ØIssues faced by the
researchers in publishing their work
ØToo much work load in
responsibility (Female researchers)
ØFees for the
research and challenges of publications
ØFinding an advisor
ØMastery over both the
interdisciplinary approach – complex nature of the society
Class room discussion
There were serious
concerns raised regarding the quality of the papers presented.
Irrespective of the
quality of the paper and the presentation skills exhibited by the scholars it
is important to look at whether there is any insight given by each paper. It is the insight presented that will
determine the quality of the paper. In terms of the insight each paper had one
or other insight to contribute to the audience. For example the paper on
Research and Publication on Hotel management gave the valuable insight that
there are no post graduate courses offered in this domain in India. It is
really a valuable and interesting insight. In such a situation researching in
such field is really a challenge. In
fact there is no academic research happening in this field.
