Course Description:

RCTD is Organizing an International Research Workshop “Literature Searching, Developing Literature Review and Data Analysis for Researcher” on 26th &27th of June, 2013 through HD Video Conferencing.


The first day of the workshop is designed to understand the key concepts and methods of searching relevant literature from print and digital sources, critical review and development of the literature, including writing, formatting, evaluating and synergizing knowledge contents.

The second day of the workshop will focus on Quantitative & Qualitative Data Analysis using SPSS and NVIVO software. The workshop will help to understand techniques for summarizing and presenting data, estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, correlation and regression analysis. The NVIVO is intended to help researchers organize and analyze non-numerical or unstructured data. The software allows users to classify, sort and arrange information; examine relationships in the data; and combine analysis with linking, shaping, searching and modeling.


The researchers from Universities, Research Institutes, R&D Organizations and Social Sector Organizations can participate individually or institutional in their own auditorium/office/home from anywhere around the world. The individual participant can participate using a laptop/desktop computer connected with internet. For institutional registration and arrangements, contact us (00971528047514, 00923224309974) or
