Second Seminar Title: How to be prolific Publisher

English
  Second Seminar Title: How to be prolific Publisher It is difficult for much academic staff to publish research articles in reputable journals. The fact is that they are capable of doing it but lack the basic knowledge about research and publications.  This seminar was aimed to introduce the academic staff with the basic information of research and publications and then motivate them to be a prolific publisher. The seminar was divided into two sections with the first section highlighting the necessity of research and publications along with providing the information related to different journals, impact factors, indexes, etc. The second part of the seminar was focussed to elaborate on how to write a good research article and what are factors to be considered.  The response of the academic staff was good after the seminar as many of them requested the slides for their reference.
