Mahatma Jyotiba Phule (MJP) doab University here is all set to launch two magazines to provide doctoral students who are unable to complete their degree on time due to the delay in the publication of research articles.
Apart from science, research papers will be published in all areas and magazines - "Journal doab law" and "legal research" - will be launched next month.
According to the University Grant Commission (UGC) - Regulation 2009 Ph.D., a scholar can complete his doctorate after only two of their research are published in any journal that has the serial number of international subscription (ISSN) .
"However, since there are less number of research journals in our country, prefer to publish the work of renowned professionals rather than students or junior faculty," said Amit Singh, head of the law department, which will these publications.
The "magazine doab right" to be started since January, has been granted ISSN while the process is underway for "Research legally." 'Doab law journal, students and professors of law, political science, public administration, sociology, social work and mass communication research can get published. Research paper on any topic can be published through "legal research".
In addition, the Department had recently launched 'Global Journal of Humanities' to publish research in all fields except pure sciences like botany and zoology.
"Our goal is to promote youth, especially doctoral students who otherwise face disappointment when they fail to achieve their key research published," said Mr Singh.
According to the regulations doctoral student can complete his doctorate in two-and-a-half-year period. But now, as the publication of the research has been made compulsory, many students take five or six years to complete their degrees because they failed to get their work published in time.
There are almost 500 PhD students are enrolled in the University and its affiliated colleges.
