Dr. Suman and Dr. Amit Kumar organizing secretaries of the workshop coordinated different sessions and they also said that the first step towards research career is to know the starting point of research. Subsequent questions are about which types of research articles exists and which types of article should be targeted at what time in research career. High rejection rate for research work of scholars globally is pointing towards the lack of skills of designing, writing different types of articles and publishing in premier journals. This workshop very aptly answered all these questions. All the speakers shared their real life experiences of being EIC rather than a standard presentation.
