To improve the research performance, promote capacity building among research scholars and to encourage student innovators, the Deanery focuses at the following four aspects and hopes to include more options and clauses in the future depending upon the arising need. The four aspects are as follows:
Incentives (cash awards) for research and academic outcomes
A For teaching staff:
B For PhD/M.Phil student research scholar (other than teaching staff)
Cash awards for winners of Student Innovation Contest
Seed money for Micro-project/ Pilot study
A For teaching staff aged maximum 35 years
B For teaching staff aged more than 35 years
All the above-mentioned research proposal for projects, application procedure, claim form for incentives, communication for conducting research activities or workshops are to be routed through the Department/Unit Head to the Principal. Deanery (R & D) will facilitate and monitor the progress of the activities of the projects.
Principal Investigators (PI) of Micro-projects are expected to present a mid-term review at the end of 3rd month. Project reports and research publications should duly acknowledge Deanery, Research and Development of MCC for the grant received. A copy of research publication, project report or any award received should be handed over to Deanery (R & D) and IQAC unit of MCC for the purpose of documentation.
The deanery of Research and Development will organise Capacity Building Workshop for PhD/ M.Phil Research Scholars of MCC in association with MCC-CTL sensing the need and trend in academia. Deanery will encourage interdisciplinary workshops and explore funding agencies to support the conduct of events.
Manuscript Polishing Drive
The Deanery organised a manuscript polishing drive from 25th July 2022 to 29th July 2022 as a follow-up of the workshops organised by the MCC Research Colloquium for the faculty of the College. The drive is intended to help faculty refine their raw manuscripts and them submissions ready. A manuscript received through the drive would receive a review on the content of the research paper through blind reviews from subject experts, English and Grammar Checks through reports generated from the Grammarly Premium version, Statistical Analysis Review from Statisticians and Journal Selection and Journal Submission Guidance. The drive was well received with faculty keenly submitting their manuscripts for reviews and guidance. The Deanery hopes to conduct a manuscript polishing drive regularly to help new researchers in their research journey.
The prize distribution ceremony of MCC Innovation Contest 2020-21 and MCC Ideation Club Poster Contest was held on the 13th of July, 2021, at 10.30 AM in the Anderson Hall. The Principal gave away the certificates and cash prizes to the winners.
