Wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy & Prosperous 2016!

Global Learners- EFL (English as a Foreign Language)

English has now gained the position of global language of science.
At the same time, many valuable research contributions are coming from BRICS or African countries with English as a non native language. This is a huge community out of p3r.in’s place of origin-India.

For all of you, with English as a second language, P3r.in offers ultimate freedom from expensive editing and writing e-services, costly incomplete training’s suited to specific time zones.

It also eliminates the need to travel long and attend costly workshops with no retention.

To use a bit of an overused expression, we say that we show you “how to fish “-rather than “offering the cooked fish”.

 

  • The course will reopen for one month before your final submission, for a final review…..at NO EXTRA COST. (You need to apply through your institution for this)
  • We are most economically priced.
  • The training, for the 1st time consolidates the foundations of English grammar, punctuation and style of scientific language with ease and interactivity of E-Learning by using examples from sciences . This is a unique feature.
  • Just in time training for many events of formal research presentations-oral, poster presentations, research report writing, dissertations, articles, thesis writing etc.
  • The training offers a ‘ready reckoner’ check list help to check and review your documents written.
  • Offers an excellent input for topics like search and literature review, ethics, avoiding plagiarism, citations

1. What inspired the core concept of p3r.in training?

The entire concept is a culmination of Santosh’s long association with the scientific community and his next long stint in Content and Communication. He sensed the gap that there is no right and enough person power to ‘teach ‘research writing comprehensively. Also, with differing individual schedules of the scientific community, it is not possible to arrange synchronous, instructor led training. Although excellent books are available on the subject, the guides and teachers can never ensure if their students have read them. As a result they spend a lot of time in correcting the writings of their students. In Non-Metro areas of India (and probably all the developing countries) the researchers find it hard to get a good guidance for research writing.What was needed was a comprehensive offering which covered all aspects of research writing; with honest certification after completion; interactive, engaging and retentive way to learn; effective in learning but affordable in costs. But -with flexibility in offering for different types of learners within the scientific community. And the result is here.-Our three years of rigorous work on content, and engaging multimedia.

2. How retentive is this E-Learning? – meaning, can the learner remember what he/she has learnt after some time? And what purpose do the printable downloadable take-away summaries help?

 Surely it is far more retentive than listening to a lecture, or attending a costly short course on a few topics once in a while. Reliable Studies have shown that in the scientific community which does not use web just as a social media but uses it as a referencing source, E-Learning succeeds more .(Refer the paper …. In our resource center).Also an instructor led training can not repeat itself often; but you may re-visit our training as many times as you want to get a certain concept clarified and imbibed in your minds. The idea of giving printable summaries is just for better learner retention. They offer you a gist of what you learnt in the lesson. You may retain and refer to them anytime you wish when so ever a situation warrants for them.

3. How will different learner categories in the scientific community worldwide benefit from p3r.in?

p3r.in emerges as the most cost effective alternative for the need of research writing. There are a number of reputed services who can undertake editing or professional work of your research writing, at a huge cost-but here, to use a bit of an overused expression, we say that we show you “how to fish “ -rather than “offering the cooked fish” –which obviously costs more. Scientists in all the developing countries, with English as their second language, will particularly benefit from our content and costs. Just compare with any other alternative. Again the self paced, asynchronous learning eliminates the barriers of time zones-you may take it up within the stipulated period any time you wish to learn. It eliminates the need to travel long and attend costly workshops on research writing.

4. Please tell us more about the certification you offer.

After the learner completes his designated training, our LMS (Learning management system) informs us about the same. We then dispatch our certificate in print to the individual learner(s). We have avoided individual electronic single click certification for the obvious reasons of a possible misuse. We are sure you understand what we mean. For institutional contracts as well, our certifications will be in the name of individual learners from that institute/company.

5. In case of a snag or incomplete registration what does the learner do?

Learners can simply mail us and tell us the problem. Within next 48 hours we will offer the right solution.

“The cost of manuscript-editing services is relatively high, and authors may wonder whether it is worth the outlay if there is no guarantee of publication. Prices — which vary depending on the level of service, the length of the paper and the turnaround time — can be anywhere from $250 for a 6,000-word paper with a 14- to 21-dayturnaround to $5,000 for a 12,000-word paper with a 48-hour turnaround.”
