Faculty Development Programme On Research Publication: Best Practices and Pitfalls
Research is a continuously changing and dynamic business activity. The role of research has changed dramatically in the past few years due to various crises—material and energy shortages, high unemployment, and effects of rapid technological changes in certain industries. Such changes, including the digital media, have forced today’s researchers to be more market driven in their strategic decision-making, requiring a formalized means of acquiring accurate and timely information about employees, customers, products and the overall environment.
This workshop explores how globalization and technology are changing scholarly research and how these changes impact researchers, institutions and publications around the world.
Although publication has always been one of the driving forces of scholarly research, it has now reached a new level of importance. The potential negative impact of not getting published on a regular basis is pushing some researchers to cut corners in order to increase their chances of acceptance into distinguished journals. Essentially, the positives of getting published outweigh the negatives of potential research misconduct
There are several reasons why it is important to adhere to ethical norms in research. First, norms promote the aims of research, such as knowledge, truth, and avoidance of error. For example, prohibitions against fabricating, falsifying, or misrepresenting research data promote the truth and avoid error. Second, since research often involves a great deal of cooperation and coordination among many different people in different disciplines and institutions, ethical standards promote the values that are essential to collaborative work, such as trust, accountability, mutual respect, and fairness. For example, many ethical norms in research, such as guidelines for authorship, copyright and patenting policies, data sharing policies, and confidentiality rules in peer review, are designed to protect intellectual property interests while encouraging collaboration. Third, many of the ethical norms help to ensure that researchers can be held accountable to the public. For instance, policies on research are necessary in order to make sure that researchers who are funded by public money can be held accountable to the public. Fourth, ethical norms in research also help to build public support for research. Finally, many of the norms of research promote a variety of other important moral and social values, such as social responsibility, compliance with the law, and health and safety.Key Deliverables An overview of the research process Building better academic arguments Research Misconduct Research Publication in Academic Journals and Research Collaboration Benefits It will provide a holistic view of the research process required for good publication and the enhance the participant’s ability and to plan a research It will address the main reason for rejection of Journal article and research grant proposals The Workshop will focuses upon the issues like Plagiarism and research misconduct It will provide simple but effective strategies to follow to assist in conducting collaborative research and to publish in academic journals Programme Schedule Day/Date Time (Hrs) Topic Resource Person Day One (25/4/14) 10 am to 11.30 pm An overview of research process Outline the major steps in the research process Distinguish between research problems, questions and hypotheses Dr. Sushil 11.45 am to 1pm An overview of research process Write clear and succinct purpose statements Explain the contents of research proposal Dr. Sushil 2: 15 pm to 3:30 pm Building Better Academic Arguments Identify the ingredients of good academic arguments Distinguish between different types of claims that can be made Dr. Mukesh Chaturvedi 3.45 pm to 5.00 pm Building Better Academic Arguments Understand the importance of good supporting evidence Learn the art of building complex arguments from simple one Dr. Mukesh Chaturvedi Dat Two (26/4/14) 10 am to 11.30 pm Research Misconduct Core “Research Misconduct” Fabrication of data Falsification of data Plagiarism Dr. K P Singh 11.45 am to 1pm Research Misconduct Research practice misconduct Poor research design Data-related misconduct Not preserving primary data Bad data management, storage Publication-related misconduct Claiming undeserved authorship Denying authorship to contributors Dr. K P Singh 2: 15 pm to 3:30 pm Research Publication in Academic Journals and Research Collaboration Understand the importance of collaborative research Effective use guidelines to assist the preparation and submission of manuscripts to academic journals Undertake simple steps to follow that will help to review positive response from editors and reviewers.
