In its sustained drive to help improve the quality of academic publications by removing ambiguities surrounding acceptable journals and inculcate enduring academic culture among the University staff, the Library and Publications Committee will be organising a three-day Talk Shop for concerned members of academic staff.

 A statement by the Secretary of the Committee, Mr. Kunle Akogun, quoted the Committee Chairman, Prof. Y. A. Quadri, as saying that “the objective of the Talk Shop, which holds at the University Auditorium between Tuesday, September 25, 2017 and Thursday, September 27, 2017 at 10.00a.m. each day, is to discuss the issue before it is sent to the University's Appointment and Promotions Committee for consideration”.

Prof. Quadri said that “the Library and Publications Committee, in a meeting held recently, noted that some members of the academic staff lack academic culture particularly integrity and mentoring required to sustain them within the academic system.

 “Secondly, the committee recognized the need to revisit the definition of acceptable academic publications within the perception of global best practices in order to remove ambiguities and provide guidance on where to publish. Everybody is hereby called upon to be part of the discussion on the issue before it is sent to the AP & C for consideration. The Committee therefore, decided to have a talk shop on the matters”.

 The Library and Publications Committee Chairman, therefore, urged members of the academic staff to come to the Talk Shop with their laptops on the dates indicated against their Faculties as follows:
