In the age of open access publishing, it becomes most challenging to publish in quality academic and Scholarly Journals. On one hand, the expectation of publishing scientific and technical papers has increased significantly both in academic and professional communities, as it is expected by the respective institutions that member of the academic staff publishes the results of their research work in reputed and indexed Journals. On the other hand, authors find themselves most challenging and a daunting task to improve their chances of publishing in management and social science Journals by ensuring that their manuscript is consistent and well fit within the scope of the Journals. Many papers are rejected by the reputed Journals due to lack of paper organizations, poor methodological clarity, inconsistent results, poor analysis, lack of articulation in writing etc. Despite the widespread standard of scholarly writing and publishing learned papers, most institutions don`t offer any formal training or specialist workshops to write effective papers and how to publish them. This frustrates young researchers to properly organize their papers for acceptance into publication in reputed Journals.
The aim of this workshop is to introduce researchers to the ways in which they can organize their research papers to publish their research output, raising the high visibility. The main issues will be included such as paper structuring, identifying the suitable journals, reasons for rejections, "Open access" issues, Copyright and publisher's policies, visibility of the articles through major search engines, citation rates, impact factors etc
