Koya University Held a workshop on ‘The Structure of a Scientific Paper and its publication’

Faculty of Science and Health hosted two days’ workshop on ‘The Structure of a Scientific Paper and its publication’. As many as 68 academic staff attended the workshop that was jointly organized by Biology and Physics Department from the same faculty on Tuesday and Wednesday. Since a successful publication of research brings attention to scholars and their institutions. Therefore, scholars in every country are being pushed to write more, as the publishing process is highly competitive, and to publish in a high-quality journal requires you to compete against researchers who are much more experienced. Hence, motivating authors to go through the writing process, in order to publish their work, is one of the essential duties of the Universities. Although, either altruism or self-interest is the main reason to motivate the authors the most, holding such activities as workshops and training courses could be a first stepping stone for the beginners. As the primary reason for becoming a scientist is the desire of most scientists contributing the advancement of their field, and publication is the most obvious way. therefore, the most effective way to write and publish a paper is a vital step that needs to be taken.
