THESIS CLINIC AND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
DEAR HIGHLY ESTEEMED ACADEMIC,
There is a serious publishing gap between academics in developing countries and those in developed countries because manuscripts from authors in developing countries reflect inadequate attention to research design and analysis. It is our considered opinion that organising THESIS CLINIC as part of INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE will help in bridging this gap.
The INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA
(ICHCADIA 2018) will feature THESIS CLINIC focusing on the "THESIS WRITING STYLES".
Thesis Clinic -the need
To improve the research skills of the Conference participants (especially graduate/PhD students and new-career academics), Thesis Clinic will hold 3-7 pm on 15th November 2018 at the confencence venue.
