The session was organised by the Internal Quality Assurance Cell of USTM.

Verma made an insightful presentation on ‘Writing a Quality Research Paper: Reviewer’s Perspective’. He stated that theories are developed by observing a phenomenon. For example: If patients start arriving more in number in a health centre, there must be an outbreak of some disease. Or, if most of the sports persons are medal winners from a particular university, their training program may be superior to that of other universities.

He shared his knowledge from the reviewers’ perspective in a research work. He mentioned the rules and regulations of research which included the importance of research objectives, data collection, detection of outliers with the help of SPSS through Boxplot, assumptions violate, development of hypothesis, authenticity issues in experimental research, sample size and effectiveness of research, variance.

GD Sharma, vice-chancellor of USTM delivered the welcome address on the occasion. The concluding remark was delivered by USTM advisor R K Sharma. Pro vice-chancellor B K Das delivered the vote of thanks.
