As the world of research is getting complicated and more competitive day-by-day, it is necessary to stay ahead in the competition. In order to get acceptance in reputed journals, a number of things should fall in proper place. Starting from choosing appropriate co-author, choosing the context, framing the research question, choosing the analytical tool, interpreting the results, to choosing the journal – every aspect matters, when it comes to publication. This workshop provides the participants with an idea about the various aspects of publication, along with a hands-on training on advanced Econometric Techniques. This workshop is expected to give the participants a mileage in their journey towards getting good publications and building a strong career in research. In this workshop, we are focusing on three areas:

  • 1. Research Writing and Collaboration

Kindly find the details of the themes:


    For preparing a good research article, it is necessary to present the ideas in a coherent manner, so that structure of the study can be readable and publishable. It has been seen that most of the journals prefer a good idea with good presentation, to an excellent idea with poor presentation. A good writing can make a huge difference in terms of deciding the quality of a research article. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the intricacies of research writing for ensuring good publication.

    While starting any study, sometimes it is also necessary to choose a co-author. Now, amongst thousands of authors around us, whom should we choose? Sometimes the role of a co-author or collaborator becomes so crucial, that it might decide upon the fate of the article. Choosing proper collaborators is a crucial task, and honing this skill can give you a competitive advantage over others. Under the purview of this topic, we will give you a brief idea about effective research writing and making effective collaborations.


    “Every paper has its home” – this is a famous saying in the community of researchers. It is a dream of every researcher to see their papers published in the most reputed and topnotch journals in their respective fields. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to achieve this feat. There might be several reasons behind this, starting from the content not being in the same lines with the scope of journal, to the topic not being relevant. So what is the solution?

    Under this topic, you will be exposed to different ways of targeting a specific journal, and understand the possible ways to publish in a reputed journal. The discussion will include various examples of publication in reputed journals, and the specific ways to crack those journals.
