CENTRE FOR RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

  RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Research forms an integral part of the educational system at CMS. A separate centre for Research & Development functions headed by Dr.Radha Damodaran.

CMS promotes inter disciploinary research and encourages its teaching faculty to undertake research activities by providing Research them with seed money for minor and major research projects

The Research Cell serves as the apex body for monitoring research activities, with the following objectives:

  • To encourage faculty members to obtain research-level qualifications.
  • To encourage faculty members to present papers and publish research articles.
  • To foster research inquisitiveness in students.
  • To prioritize the introduction of PG courses and research courses.
  • To assist faculty members in preparing documents and submitting research proposals to funding agencies.
  • To ensure that sufficient experimental manuals and reference books are made available in the Department Libraries.
  • To monitor the process of selection of research scholars via written tests and interviews.
  • To serve as the interface between the academic units, and the Principal and Management for planning thrust areas and future direction in research areas.
  • To monitor linkages and collaborations with research institutes, hospitals, and Indian and Foreign Universities.

  RESEARCH POLICY

The institution has a well-defined policy to promote research culture among the CMS academic fraternity including faculty and students. A slew of efforts have been initiated in the institution towards the logical culmination of these ends.

  • Faculty members who wish to pursue M.Phil or Ph.D will be sanctioned On Duty leave for one day per month for meeting their guide.
  • Faculty members who have completed M.Phil will be sanctioned one increment and Ph.D will be sanctioned two increments on completion of their Viva voce examinations successfully.

In case of utilization of Resources the remuneration will be shared by Institution, Management and faculty consultant with the ratio of 20:60:20 respectively.
  • Reward suitably any research publications in reputed journals.
  • Grant one increment / two increments on completion of M.Phil or Ph.D programs respectively.
  • 50% grant of the registration fees for attending conferences or seminars or workshops on production of participation certificate.

  CMS ETHICS CULTURE

Ethics are questions of right and wrong. While these questions are very important in the lives of human beings, ethics also play a critical role in the education and academic domains.

The following code of conduct has been spelt out for use by the entire academic fraternity at CMS. Violations of this code, by any one, will be dealt with strongly and swiftly, without exception.

PLAGIARISM AND CHEATING

          While the academic fraternity the world over unanimously agree on free sharing and exchange of knowledge, data, information, views, ideas and opinions, they are simultaneously highly critical of any act of plagiarism and cheating.

          Cases of plagiarism are the use of material, ideas, figures, code or data without appropriate acknowledgment or permission (in some cases) of the original source. This may involve submission of material, verbatim or paraphrased, that is authored by another person or published earlier by oneself. Examples of plagiarism include: (a) Reproducing, in whole or part, text/sentences from a report, book, thesis, publication or the internet. (b) Reproducing one’s own previously published data, illustrations, figures, images, or someone else’s data, etc. (c) Taking material from class-notes or downloading material from Internet sites, and incorporating it in one’s class reports, presentations, manuscripts or thesis without citing the original source. (d) Self plagiarism which constitutes copying verbatim from one's own earlier published work in a journal or conference proceedings without appropriate citations.

          Cheating is another form of unacceptable academic behavior and may be classified into different categories: (a) Copying during exams, and copying of homework assignments, term papers or manuscripts. (b) Allowing or facilitating copying, or writing a report or exam for someone else. (c) Using unauthorized material, copying, collaborating when not authorized, and purchasing or borrowing papers or material from various sources (d) Fabricating (making up) or falsifying (manipulating) data and reporting them in thesis and publications.
The following guidelines for academic conduct must be observed by all concerned.

  1. Use proper methodology for experiments/computational work. Accurately describe, compile data.
  2. Carefully record and save primary and secondary data such as original pictures, instrument data readouts, laboratory notebooks, and computer folders. There should be minimal digital manipulation of images/photos; the original version should be saved for later scrutiny, if required, and the changes made should be clearly described.
  3. Ensure robust reproducibility and statistical analysis of experiments and simulations. It is important to be truthful about the data and not to omit some data points to make an impressive figure (commonly known as “cherry picking”).
  4. Lab notebooks must be well maintained in bound notebooks with printed page numbers to enable checking later during publications or patent. Date should be indicated on each page.
  5. Write clearly in your own words. It is necessary to resist the temptation to “copy and paste” from the Internet or other sources for class assignments, manuscripts and thesis.
  6. Give due credit to previous reports, methods, computer programs, etc. with appropriate citations. Material taken from your own published work should also be cited; as mentioned above, it will be considered self-plagiarism otherwise.

MECHANISM FOR DETECTION OF PLAGIARISM

          All articles / manuscripts / theses of M.Phil / Ph.D should be submitted to the CRD (Centre for Research and Development) of the college, for the verification of Plagiarism using Plagiarism Checker X Pro version software. If the report generated by the software gives a score of less than 20%, it will be approved for submission to University / Publication. If it is more than 20%, the research scholar will be asked to resubmit the same, until the score reaches a level lesser than 20%.

  CMS CONSULTANCY POLICY

The CMS Board, management as well as the faculty were unanimous in the need for the institution to develop the consultancy services to the corporate world as well as the other stakeholders in the society, at large.
          As a measure of fostering and promoting consultancy at CMS, it was agreed to tap the present academia-institution framework.
          A committee at the college level, named CMS CONSULTANCY COMMITTEE, may be formed under the Centre for Research and Development.
          The committee will be empowered with identification of thrust areas and finalization of MOUs and other formal arrangements of co-operation between the institution and the business world.
Also, the Board agreed that the fruits of the consultancy activity need to be shared with all the individuals involved in this exercise. Accordingly, it was agreed that faculty members who receive fees for consultancy assignments can use it for completing their assignment and need not share their remuneration with the Institution unless the Institution’s resources are utilized. In case of utilization of Resources the remuneration will be shared by Institution, Management and faculty consultant with the ratio of 20:60:20 respectively.

  • Faculty members who wish to pursue M.Phil or Ph.D will be sanctioned On Duty leave for one day per month for meeting their guide.
  • Faculty members who have completed M.Phil will be sanctioned one increment and Ph.D will be sanctioned two increments on completion of their Viva voce examinations successfully.
