Workshop on ‘Art and Science of Writing’
(17 to 20 December 2007)

Chintan@IRMA is a dynamic and evolving platform of Fellow Participants in Rural Management at Institute of Rural Management Anand. We are involved in regular discussion and dialogue on management research encompassing range of topics. In continuation of that we are organizing a workshop on ‘Art and Science of writing’ at IRMA.

‘Publish or Perish’… stands true for the doctoral students of all management institutes and Universities. It is important for researchers to present what they think, propose and write about their work in lucid and simple manner. Like any other skill, academic writing can be learnt through practice and experience. However, there are certain basic issues to be understood for writing effectively. Hence a four-day workshop has been planned to be held at IRMA for doctoral students to impart the basics of art and science of writing.


The purpose of the workshop is to provide an understanding of academic and research writing to the doctoral students.
