This allows final checks, revision just before submission-a facility much needed by all Commonwealth researchers. This is truly a unique feature-no other means of learning research writing offers it.(feature not available to PG programme)
  •  Completes 90% of the Pre-PhD courseware mandatory in most of HE and research institutions; it offers a UNIFORM syllabus of such courseware for science and non science stream researchers
  • Reduces publication rejections of the research; enhances citations and overall impact-raising individual and institutional reputations.
  • It provides periodic learning progress tracking reports to the departmental heads-for better monitoring of learning
  • It is extensive economic and engaging.7 modules,34 lessons and 182 topics, with lessons separated for science and non science stream researchers.

This feature is applicable only to total program options of science and non science streams.

For this the only procedure is your head of the department or any competent authority has to e-mail us that you had earlier enrolled for this program, are now completing your submission and we will convey you the new log in id and password.

1. What exact advantages and procedure for re-opening the program one month be for final submission?

It has many unparalleled advantages for learners. And there is no one offering this unique facility and retention.

  1. Even though they may have finished this training and/or other inputs for learning research writing, one may not have retained some of the content-which is the actual need for final checking and last revisions. Reopening facilitates the same.
  2. It offers the learners a ready reckoner tool to review revise and correct your manuscript just before submission. Specific doubts and difficulties at this stage will be better cleared.
  3. It offers freedom from expensive external editing services, costly and less content workshops suited to particular time zones. So whichever part of the world you are situated these features remain at your fingertips. Once you enroll with us you are registered in our database and we can identify you to reopen the course for 1 month of your choice before final submission.

For this the only procedure is your head of the department or any competent authority has to e-mail us that you had earlier enrolled for this program, are now completing your submission and we will convey you the new log in id and password.

2. 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.

4. How is your course different than the free information available online?

  1. www.p3r.in is a teaching portal without any strings attached. Learning with us does not hook you to any of other services of editing, publishing etc. later.
  2. It is a structured courseware for early and mid-career researchers, with defined learning objectives linked to definite learning outcomes.
  3. We submit a periodical report to the departmental/institutional heads which track progress of individual learner.
  4. Our content exclusively offers fundamental aspects and attributes of the language of research writing like style, usage grammar, punctuation, quantitative and numerical expression.
  5. Our content completes 90% generic aspects of Pre-PhD courseware,generaly overlooked in the syllabi of university/institutional Pre- PhD course wares which concentrate on subject/discipline specific topics.

5. 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 William west, B.R. Simon rosser, Salma Monani & Laura Gurak s’ research 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 whensoever a situation warrants for them.

6. What can be an institutional contract?

An institution/organization may have multiple categories of learners we have identified. Also it is a possibility that some institutions/dean-academic affairs may prescribe it as a mandatory Pre-Ph.D. work. In such cases the institution may collate all the categories of learners they have within their institution, and approach us for a long term contract with revised bulk pricing. The certifications and log in -ids, passwords will however, be in the individual names and not with a sectional or departmental name. For any such requirement please contact us. Kindly refer pricing link for prices. However we advise individual learners not to wait for such contracts to happen, but register independently and start learning if you wish so.

7. 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.
