Academic Journal: Editing and Publishing Launch One Your Own

Author Name: Radhakrishnan Nair | Format: Paperback | Genre : Reference & Study Guides | Other Details

World University rankings were announced by Thomas Reuters and The Times. As an Indian, besides being one teaching for nearly five decades, I was eager to know the results of the announcement. I showed enough concern. Where have our good Indian universities/higher educational institutions been placed? I set my eyes on top ranks, and it didn’t give me anything to be proud of. My eyes crossed over more than two hundred and fifty names of universities of the world, including those of some not so “developed countries.” But I came across no name of Indian institutions/universities. This upsets me.

What made the Indian educational scenario virtually get eclipsed by the scenarios of the rest of the world?

I drew a comparison between the higher education in India with that of many other countries. The World Education scene in general occupied a higher level of degree in research and publication than that of the Indian Education scene. Research flourishes when research is brought to light through publication. I always advocate sound growth in Indian Education. This can be achieved if we improve journal publication. This awareness has resulted in this book. Therefore, Journal Publishing is a Cultural Imperative.

This -book is designed to help readers understand what a journal is, the people who are responsible for the creation and production of this journal, how a journal is published, where a journal flourishes, and why it is mandatory in education development. I have taken materials from all over the world and all these sources have been acknowledged in the references, but for them, this book would not have been a reality.
