and reviewed in international forums
Research scholars of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University
(JNTU), Hyderabad will now be able to get their work examined and reviewed in international
forums. The JNTU has taken an initiative according to which thesis submitted by
university students will be put online for international access from this academic
year. The thesis will be first checked for plagiarism and later uploaded to the
web portal, Shodhganga.
The new project is initiated by the research and development cell of the university.
A MoU was signed between Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) center of the
University Grants Commission, Ahmedabad and JNTU on Sept 3.According to JNTU officials,
the project would help students from the university to have an interaction with
international scholars. The INFLIBNET is a forum where academic and scholarly work
of students and faculty members of the country are shared to be later accessed by
experts from outside the country. JNTU is the first technical university from the
state to go for such a reform, officials said.
Even dissertations of students can be uploaded on this portal. This project is aimed
at giving international exposure to students and to help them get good jobs. Even
industry majors could be looking at good research work online to implement in their
companies. JNTU being one of the leading technological universities there could
be a lot of takers for projects from here, said Prof K Lal Kishore, director of
the research and development cell, JNTU-H.
The university has started implementing plagiarism check for their masters
and PhD theses. We run the thesis through software that detects plagiarized content.
Hence the material that gets uploaded online will be a hundred percent original,
