What will increase a researcher’s chance of getting published? For starters, a keen understanding of the publishing and peer review process is necessary. To provide researchers with this knowledge, Wiley hosted a series of workshops at key management institutes across India in November:

Indian School of Business, Hyderabad

Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta

Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad

Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore

 

At the workshops, Professor Will Mitchell, Co-Editor of the Strategic Management Journal, gave insight into the types of academic publications available, the processes involved in getting their work published, and the expectations from editors of leading journals.

The author workshops aimed to build bridges between the business schools’ scholars and leading international journals. “Each of the schools has many active scholars who are engaging in global research communities and conversations. The workshops helped reinforce the value of research that scholars in India are undertaking and, in turn, helped build links to opportunities to publish the research globally,” said Professor Mitchell.

 

 “We’re committed to helping Indian researchers and academics publish their research in global journals and understand the global best practices for publishing their research. These workshops will help in putting Indian research at the forefront of global academic and scientific communities,” said Vikas Gupta (Managing Director, Wiley India).

 

Two-way learning

Participants, including faculty members, research scholars and students, found the session helpful, with many expressing appreciation to the Wiley team. “The topics Professor Mitchell covered from shaping one’s articles to writing the first paragraph gave valuable insight into how publishers and reviewers look at our writing.  For research scholars like us, who are starting our careers, these little tips make a difference,” said Ashish Kumar Jha, Doctoral Program Representative – Student Council, IIM Calcutta.

 

“The workshop was very insightful. Especially as Indian scholars, we do not get sufficient guidance on how to go about writing publish-worthy papers.  The workshop gave a realistic yet encouraging view of the process,” said Supriya Sharma, FPM Student, IIM Bangalore.

 

But it wasn’t just the participants who benefited from the workshops. Through engaging the scientific authors, we learned more about them and their requirements. Caroline McCarley (Associate Publisher), who presented on publishing with Wiley said, “The workshops provided a rich learning environment that helps us understand better the evolving research needs of our authors and gives insight into how we can work together to enable knowledge and progress in the volatile  journals publishing world.”

<![CDATA[The NExT Generation of Learning - Purdue NExT online learning program set to debut]]> http://www.wileyindia.com/Press_Releases/purdue-next-online-learning-program-set-to-debut/ The NExT Generation of Learning - Purdue NExT online learning program debuts in India

 

October 8th, 2013, Bangalore, India — Wiley India announced today that Purdue NExT, an online program that emphasizes interactive learning for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate level courses is now available for Indian learners.

 

The five-week, non-degree courses taught by Purdue faculty are currently being offered to undergraduate and graduate students and will be marketed to higher education institutions, professionals, businesses looking to improve skill levels of employees that wish to supplement their degree programs and curricula.

 

"Purdue NExT will enable students to gain exclusive access to courses taught by world-class faculty that focus on applied professional development across several areas of Purdue expertise, "said Timothy Sands, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost at Purdue. Purdue NExT will not offer degrees or Purdue credits but rather modular, online courses that focus on a core skill vital to continued success in a specific field of study or industry. Purdue NExT courses, which are available this semester, can be taken as a standalone course, as part of a series or as a supplementary experience embedded in existing credit-bearing courses.

 

Students will view video lectures, interact with simulation and computational tools, and take quizzes at their own convenience, but homework assignments, exams and discussion forums will be on a schedule that is fixed by the host institution.

The courses will be built in Purdue's HUBzero environment, a research and education platform for science and engineering communities that offers cloud-based computing resources.

 

Ananth Iyer, faculty director of Purdue NExT, said the courses emphasize interactive, experiential learning. "Purdue NExT courses will offer deeper learning experiences by incorporating simulation, visualization and graphics," he said. "The technology enables this advanced online learning and allows tailoring of the lecture experience to the individual student's needs." Iyer said the tools being used vary with the specific course, but range from circuit simulations, to lean supply chain exercises, to optimization tools, to physical simulations to virtual clean rooms. He said access to large datasets to drive these models will enable students to learn while immersed in real-world scenarios using numerical, sound and video data.

 

When students successfully complete courses they earn digital badges that are tied to the Mozilla Open Badge program and make use of Purdue's Passport badge technology. In some cases, these badges can be translated into continuing education credits and applied towards professional certifications.

 

While launching the courses in India, Vikas Gupta, Managing Director Wiley India said, “We feel that changing trends and market scenario have intensified the need of job-readiness & skill-enabled resources. These initiatives allow instant improvement in the program’s overall quality, and provide industry orientation & technical skills thereby preparing students for successful careers upon graduation.”

 

The courses will be marketed globally in late semester to individuals, business and industry and other higher education institutions by Deltak, a Wiley brand, on behalf of Purdue.

 

"In the past few years, there has been such a big increase in the number of people pursuing higher education around the world that many countries can't find enough qualified faculty, particularly for upper-level engineering, science and technology courses," Iyer said. "This program can help international students learn some of those skills."
