Programs for Capacity Building in Research (PCBR)




The PCBR is designed to train and polish faculty and researchers from critical thinking to the level of publishing research in their areas of interest. The program starts with an in-depth introduction to the critical thinking and planning required at the initial stage of a thesis, research project or a paper. It moves on development of critical review of literature, research ethics and plagiarism (using turnitin), research model, RQs, hypotheses and writing a research proposal. It is followed by selection of a suitable research method, hands on practice for conducting research, data collection & management, data analysis using SPSS and its interpretation, report writing and publishing papers, using citation management and referencing tools, Endnote, RefWork or Zotero.


The program aims in developing advance research skills of the participants through lectures, presentations use of software, robust training techniques, hands-on practice, exercises and real life examples. Along with theoretical understanding, the participants are challenged to exercise the concepts and then apply those in their own settings.

We have been organizing following research methods workshops physically and online through High Definition Video Conferencing facility.
