Research in Life Sciences


??

Research career in life sciences is full of money, power, passion, prestige, awards, position and satisfaction. All this are available only to eligible candidates having the capacity and caliber to stand in the field of research. Research can be start at any point of your academic but officially it supposed to be started at Doctoral course and can be continue till a researchers wants. Careers in life sciences is decided by the impact factor and citations??of the publications produced by a research scholar during his/her research tenure.

What is a publication.



Publications is the written presentation of data collected during experiments. Its shows the quality of work done by a researcher and what type of experiments is going on. It is the main source of information and scientific knowledge for planning future experiments and projects. Mainly there are two main types of publications are generally came across the scientific world, original research article and review article. There are many research journals which published these publications. The quality of the journals is decided by the impact factor of it and this factor is directly depend on the published stuffs in it. If a researcher doing some good experiments, getting some good data, it would definitely published in a high impact factor journals. A whole report called as journal citation report is available on the Internet stating about the impact factor of almost all well known journals.

What is a impact factor.



The impact factor is the criteria of the quality of journals in which researchers publishing their experiments. There is a?? mathematical formula to calculate the I.F. of a particular journal. Presently the highest impact factor is 69. The impact factor of a journal depends on articles/review/reports published in that. A high quality data of experiments highly increased the impact factor of a journal.

The quality of a publication or data of experiments depending on three things.

1. Idea: This is the main base of a publication. University professors, scientists and group leaders postulates strong ideas to be investigate by their teams.

2. Manpower: The PhD scholar, post doctoral fellows, project assistants, and students are the main workers which works on an idea generated by a supervisor. Only highly skilled manpower will work with a good supervisor or good idea and would get some good publications.

3. Infrastructure: The tools, facility, techniques, library and Internet are the major infrastructure requires for implementation of the research proposal based in the idea generated by the supervisor.

??

These three crucial factors decide the overall growth of the scientific research. So if students wants to build a career in life science research, they must get admited to a PhD course in a good research institute having above mentioned things.

??

Also a good publication must frequently cited by researchers in their publications. (Not the self citation.) If it is not getting any citations even after two three years then it was just a report for some personnel benefits(!). There is no sense to publish non-citable papers.?? It must be highly citated.??

??

We recommend the students to solve the various problem sets??availabe from this website,??watch videos and animations, read study guides,??read various lecture notes,??watch the powerpoints,??learn from various tutorials, ??try to learn computer programming, learn computational biology tools and read lots of research articles.?? If you have this kinds of knoweldge, you are the person which needed in real scientific world.
