THESIS CLINICS AND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES 

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 and INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES will help in bridging this gap.

 

In collaboration with academic institutions and research institutes, Welfare and Industrial Promotions (WIPRO) International organises the following INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES, each of which is accompanied by a THESIS CLINIC as described below: 

1.      INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NATURAL RESOURCES AND AFRICA’S DEVELOPMENT [ICNRAD 2016]
