Workshop on Scientific Writing, Reporting and Presentation (WSW) 

14 – 16 February 2019 

Quite often, young researchers with good data sets, find it difficult to write research article for submission to reputed Journals for publications. Also, many middle level research staff among academia fail to impress funding agencies for want of skill to write winning proposals. Equally important are the skills in making impressive presentation at the seminars/Symposia/conferences. There are no readymade guidelines or tutorials available that can address these limitations in specific terms as the problem needs to be addressed case by case basis. Hence, a three day workshop is being proposed/organized during 14 to 16 February 2019 at Agri Biotech Foundation, PJTS Agricultural University campus, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad TS. 

Outline of the Workshop 

Each participant will submit a copy of the draft write up of his/her paper manuscript (unpublished)/ research proposal/ research report and a presentation in MS PP file. 

The group will discuss these write-ups along with a mentor. One of the manuscript will be used as base paper while others will be used for exercises during the workshop. 

Write-ups will be examined for correctness of language in terms of usage of verbs, preposition, article, consistency in tense etc. 

Improvement of readability of the paper, avoiding verbosity, consistency in expression etc. 

How to condense the text without losing meaning, avoid duplicity, improve clarity through proper punctuations etc. 

References and bibliography preparation; use of software like endnotes/ spellcheck/ plagiarism 

Preparation of high quality graphs, pictures using free software. 

Examining the research project proposals for clarity of idea, hypothesis, clear concept of objectives versus activities, specific role of collaborating partners etc.
