A master class on publishing in journals indexed to Scopus and Web of Science

Mehmet Fatikh Tasar, who is a professor at Gazi University (Ankara, Turkey), the president of ISER, chief editor of EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, and the coeditor of Eurasian Journal of Physics & Chemistry Education, conducted a series of master classes for researchers on preparation of publications for submitting in the top-rated foreign journals indexed to Scopus and Web of Science. One of the problems is that a large number of Russian publications does not meet the world standards, and Professor Tasar singled out organizational and methodological problems. He attributes bad translation of articles into English to the most urgent questions. Alfiya Masalimova, an associate professor at KFU and organizer of those seminars, also admitted the necessity of involving native speakers in order to improve the quality of translation. Among the others, Prof. Masalimova outlined the problems connected with research relevance, literature analysis, inconclusive methods and techniques, falsity in experimental part of research, etc. The participants admitted that had looked quite differently at their articles after the seminars. Now they have a good chance to adhere to a new model of processing their work. In a few days, the Institute of psychology and education will host Slovenian professor Andreja Istenic Starcic, who will give a number of lectures on research within education.
