CLEARING BACK-LOGS

A major stem taken this year was the termination of research registration to scholars who repeatedly failed to

submit the thesis. Long delay in submission of the thesis will not be productive and working on a research problem

dictated long back will not contribute any useful results, while the knowledge society is emerging out at a rapid speed.

Hence the University Research Council has decided to give away with all old registrations, after giving them sufficient

time for submission of final thesis.  After such an exercise, the University has now only fresh graduates doing research

at various centres.  Most of the logs in awarding the Ph D degree has been cleared and 76 scholars were awarded Ph.D

against 61, last year.  The number may further boost up by the end of the academic year.

University of Calicut

As an attempt to motivate the young researchers, the QAC has recommended instituting a Vice Chancellor’s

Medal for Best Research Paper and Best Thesis to be awarded annually separately for Science and Non-Science

Faculties.  The Best Publication and the Best Thesis will be identified and awarded with the above medals by a celebrity

on a day coined as Researchers Day. Researcher’s Day will be celebrated in the campus every year and on that day we

will open the wonders of research activity going on in the campus to the public and the students of schools and inspire

the young ones in the schools around the campus.
