The goal of our seminar is to enlighten everyone with the knowledge of saving time, increasing the quality of thesis writing, fast publishing, review paper, and research finding and reducing mental stress.
Since writing a quality thesis is surely a problematic process. So it's the crucial part specifically needed to be constructed effectively to ensure the students produce high impact papers. KSI (Keywords, Sequence, Importance) technique is proved to be an effective method to enable the students to graduate on time and publish papers in the reputable journal. And this technique is going to be the center topic of our seminar.
