NSU launches first student-led research journal in Bangladesh
North South University (NSU) students have taken the initiative to launch a student-edited research journal, the first of its kind in Bangladesh. Titled "NSU Journal of Student Research" (NSU JSR), this research initiative aims to tap, unleash and improve the research potential and academic writing skills of students from NSU and other universities from around the world.
NSU Pro-VC Prof. Dr M. Ismail Hossain formally inaugurated the journal at a ceremony held on July 17. The journal will be published under the supervision of the NSU Office of Research (OR).
While the concept of student-led and managed research journals is common in all the top-ranking international universities like Columbia, Harvard, Cambridge and UPenn, it is still a novelty in Bangladesh.
The journal's main goal is to promote and disseminate student research in Bangladesh and beyond by providing an avenue for students to get their work published, expose them to the realm of research, and prepare them for a future career in academia.
Dr M. Ismail expressed the hope that this student-led initiative will help NSU reach the forefront in education and research in Bangladesh. Journal faculty advisor Prof. Mohammed Nuruzzaman, and NSU School of Humanities and Social Sciences Dean Dr Abdur Rob Khan spoke highly of this initiative. NSU JSR Editor-in-Chief Sakir Mohammad offered the vote of thanks.
