The academic publishing model is very inequitable currently – most commercial publishers demand exorbitant prices for access to journal articles, either through subscription or article processing charges. In this digital era, when publishing costs are negligible, and the peer review process is voluntary, it is unreasonable to have such high access...

Commercial publishers demand exorbitant prices for the access of journal articles either through subscription or article processing charges. In this digital era, when the cost of publishing is negligible, and the peer review process is voluntary, it’s unreasonable to put such a high access barrier. Under these circumstances, the commercial publishe...

High-value agriculture in India is witnessing a transformation, specifically in fresh fruits and vegetables (FFV). Supply chain stakeholders, mainly small and marginal farmers, receive a very minimal share in consumer rupee due to market uncertainty, high post-harvest losses, information asymmetry, lack of processing facilities and the erratic dema...

Project
This project aims to understand the parameters used by research and academic institutions for assessing research/researchers, and initiate a discussion on the research assessment criteria of Indian research and funding institutions. By initiating debates over the strengths and weaknesses of current assessment practices, the workshops will help institutions build robust, flexible research assessment frameworks.
Project
The project will be in two steps. In the first step, we suggest an alternate model of digital publishing that doesn't put scholarly research behind high subscription charges, not does restrict communicating scientific publication through high APC. The platform, using new age digital technology, will help in automating publishing process where necessary and make research outputs available to everyone. In the second step, the underlying technology for the proposed digital platform will be developed through a nation-wide hackathon. The participant will be asked to design the automated platform using suitable algorithms, considering the efficiency, cost implications of the used technology, etc. as some of the basic criteria.
Project
Obtaining a broader as well as in depth understanding of climate policy network coalitions and dynamics for climate smart agricultural systems at macro and meso-level
