Conspicuous errors while reporting academic write up
Academic write-up requires special skills since it differs from ordinary report writing and commercial write-up. The scientific way of writing each statement in academic write-up needs documental evidence through latest literature review. Academic write-up is not only communicated to laymen but also to the highly intellectual scientific/social-science society. Therefore, additional care should be focused on sequencing, ordering and professionalism while writing academic reports. It is not the question of English grammar and Vocabulary but technically there should be sound evidence for the text in academic write-up. Researchers often make conspicuous mistakes while writing academic report without intention, but it will mislead the future researchers to a large extent. One way to avoid simple mistakes in the write-up is to read, and reread the text as many times as possible and correct the mistakes following the guidelines/instructions, to the extent of our knowledge. Despite this rigorous exercise, still we encounter several mistakes when we submit Project Grant report/Ph.D. Proposal Defense report/Ph.D. Final report. In this webinar series, some common preventable conspicuous mistakes will be highlighted which will be useful to all research scholars, which ever discipline who have undertaken the research.
