On Friday, December 31, 2022, Symbiosis University of Applied Sciences, Indore hosted a Skill Development Workshop on the Art of Scientific and Research Writings. Dr. Jolly Masih from the School of Retail Management and Dr. Kamal Kant Hiran from the School of Computer Science and IT served as program resource persons.

Dr. Jolly has discussed the different types of research writing, the attributes of a good manuscript, and the general structure of research paper writing such as Abstract, Keywords or Index words, Introduction, Literature Review, Methods and Experimental, Results and Discussion Section. She has explained the distinction between the results and discussion sections in detail, using examples.

Dr. Kamal Hiran then went on to discuss the significance of reference management and various referencing styles such as APA, IEEE, Chicago, Harvard, and Vancouver, among others. He has concentrated on proper referencing throughout the manuscript via in-text citations in accordance with the International Conference and Journal requirements. He has given a brief overview of the Mendeley, a reference management tool that is widely used worldwide. This is open-source software that can be very useful in terms of personal library management and different reference management styles.

Dr. Jolly also mentioned the International Conference on Global Economic Revolutions: The Era of Digital Economy collaboration with Symbiosis University of Applied Sciences, Indore. This is a good opportunity for University actors to publish papers in the International Conference, and extended versions of the papers will also be published in reputable International Journals that are indexed in Scopus, Web of Science, and SCI databases. The session lasted about 2 hours and included audience questions and answers.
