Research is a part of the ordinary work of a university professor. He carries out research for the purpose of spreading the knowledge far and wide. Research contributes for the seminal changes in the academia and the industry which are useful for the society to scale up in the annals of development. Quality is the benchmark for any work. Whatever work we do we have to do in a dedicated way which may lead to quality final output. When it comes to the publication of research carried out by the faculty it needs to be quality oriented and to be published in reputed journals for accessing and citing by others in the world. Many people copy and indulge in plagiarism which must be checked in for the penetration of the research cult.
