On 18 April, Professor Jacqueline gave an excellent presentation about “Publishing in academic journals: tips to help you succeed”. This is an important topic for us as we are trying to establish a strong research culture in our University. A very large number of staff estimated to be around 60 attended the lecture and appreciated the tips and learnt a great deal of good hints of how to get published. Producing strong refereed publications will undoubtedly enhance our efforts to achieve accreditation. I would like to thank Dr Faiza, Dr Adel, and Dr Bahaa for the efforts they put in organising these important lectures.
