Call for application - webinar on publishing scientific articles

AGRICRAFT, a new project launched by YPARD Nepal, is excited to invite 30 young professionals into its first webinar entitled “Publishing Scientific Articles: What Should You Know?” on 7- 8th November 2020. 

Our world-class young scientists who have good records of publications, reviewing/editorial experiences and follow peer-to-peer learning methods will share their knowledge, experiences and guidance to newcomers who are looking for an opportunity to improve scientific writing skills and get published in reputed journals. This webinar can be highly effective for those students who have recently completed any field or lab works and ready for data analysis, develop a manuscript and thinking about potential journals for their work. It also includes information related to the peer-review process and publication ethics. 

Hence, to assist better for selected participants by facilitators, interested individuals are encouraged to submit their draft abstracts during the application process. We expect our participants will improve a way to acquire necessary writing skills and increase confidence and motivation to contribute to the scholar field.


  1. Dinesh Panday, Ph.D.: Dr. Panday received his Ph.D. in 2020 from the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, United States. His research area includes biogeochemistry, nutrient cycling, simulation model and greenhouse gas emissions, with a focus on soil nitrogen management. Currently, he is working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Tennessee- Knoxville. His Publication Records and Reviewer/ Editorial Board Profile are available on Google Scholar and Publons.
  2. Roshan Babu Ojha: Mr. Ojha, currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of New England, is a soil scientist to the Soil Science Division, Nepal Agricultural Research Council (NARC) since 2015.

He is an awardee of the “Young scientist award” (2017) and “Outstanding Contribution Scientist in Soil Conservation (2018).” His Publication Records and Reviewer/ Editorial Board Profile are available on Google Scholar and Publons.
