DIMAPUR — The Research and Development Cell (RDC) and Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) of Dimapur Government College (DGC) organised a one-day state-level workshop on research methodology and research publication in SCOPUS and UGC-CARE-listed journals on Monday.

In the first session, resource person Prof. Nigamananda Das, head of Department of English, Nagaland University, spoke on the topic ‘Research publication in SCOPUS and UGC-CARE listed journals,’ stated an update from the college.

Das deliberated at length about the importance of writing good research papers and getting them published in reputed journals, which, he said, helps one cultivate a sound culture of scholarship while maintaining ethical standards.

He also highlighted the dangers of predatory journals and pointed out that laziness is a key factor behind the inability to produce quality research papers. He emphasised that one’s research should be able to produce new knowledge and that one should not be afraid of publishing it.

In the second session, resource person Dr. BV Rao, associate professor, Department of Education, Nagaland University, spoke at length on the topic ‘Key elements in qualitative and quantitative research.’

Rao discussed the various types of research tools and how one can incorporate such tools into one’s research work.

Among other things, he stressed on the significance of finding research gaps while choosing any research topic and how, through a strong literature review, such gaps can be established.

Both sessions were followed by interaction with the participants. The workshop was held in hybrid mode, with a total of 102 participants attending both online and offline.

The programme was chaired by Dr. Vinyühu Lhoungu, assistant professor, Department of Economics and IQAC Coordinator, DGC, in the first session and Dr. Yelhi Vero, assistant professor, department of Economics and convenor of Research and Development Cell, DGC.

The DGC principal elucidated on the paradigm shift that has taken place in the educational system with the introduction of the FYUGP as per NEP 202 and the importance of learning how to pursue quality research through measures taken through such workshops.

The workshop ended with the rapporteurs’ report and a vote of thanks by Dr. Hare Krushna Parhi, assistant professor, Department of Education and nodal officer, NEP 2020, DGC.
