Best Practices


The importance of research to an academic institution’s viability and expansion in a globalized environment makes knowledge-driven growth based on innovation essential. The institution has started to develop a number of programmes that could foster a research culture there in response to the NAAC’s proposal. Therefore, the primary goal of this best practice is to progress the teachers and students to an advanced level where they can begin probing and investigating new areas in order to improve their growth and greatness in their respective disciplines.

  • Research Quality Assurance Cell: To foster a research culture among the faculty and students, a Research Quality Assurance Cell (RQAC) was established. It was with their advice and input that a suitable mechanism for fostering a research environment at NIMIT was developed. Regular meetings are held and an effective system is also introduced for creating the research culture.

  • Research Guidance: It was crucial that the faculty members be advised with a solid foundation of research knowledge because each department is obligated to provide project support to both UG and PG students. The IQAC set up an interdisciplinary ISBN journal named Naivigyan, where articles by professors in several subjects were published.
  • Student Research Publication (SRP): The college also fostered student writing and publications. The ultimate aim of this initiative is to make the final year scholars publish their own research papers in this academic year either in the Naivigyaan or UGC journals.

  • National Seminars/ Conferences: Faculty members were trained to help and support students in their efforts to write better research papers and projects. All departments had organised National Conferences and Seminars, which were also laying the groundwork for a strong research culture. The Departments of Commerce, Computer Science and Languages also organised the National Conference, and after the conference, they published research journals Dhanpath, Vigyan, Signpost, Bhodhika and Naihika. Best Project and Best Guide awards were also instituted to promote healthy competition among research students and to encourage the faculty guides. The best projects were honoured during the Annual Day celebrations. Teachers were encouraged to pursue Ph.D. degrees. Teachers were also recognised for presenting and publishing papers at national and international colloquia and publishing papers in peer-reviewed UGC journals. The Faculty Enhancement Program is a training department initiative to provide a platform for all the teachers to present their research papers in-house.

  • R-Collective: The research committee had organized a research workshop named “R-Collective 2.0” for the faculty members and PG students to promote paper publication. As a result, the faculty members and students’ publications in Scopus, UGC care group-1 and other ISSN/ISBN publications were increased at a great-extent.

  • Research Publications: With the effect of the Research Workshop being conducted and Research Proposal Competition being initiated, we had teachers coming up with many research papers which led to the formulation of the Multidisciplinary Research journal through the research committee named Naivigyan. There were many teachers who had contributed to the Journal.

  • Provision of Incentives: The teachers were also provided incentives to participate and attend research based workshops all across the country. There were Faculties who collaborated with the PG students and published papers in the UGC approved journals. The institution also provides rewards for those faculties who were getting their papers published in various journals.

  • Best Project Awards: For the purpose of encouraging the teachers and the students, awards were constituted for the best projects in the UG and PG level in every department. The students with good project topics were selected by the class teachers and the best of them were shortlisted by the HoDs which were scrutinized by the external experts. As a result 5 Best Projects and one Best Guide were also selected from each department to be awarded.
