Introduction      Questions and Answers     Dr.Serageldin Course 

Advancement in academia typically depends upon Scientific publishing. The more you publish, the better the first job, the higher the raise, and the faster the promotion. Sadly only 3% of publications come from developing countries, despite the fact that 27% of the scientists live in developing countries and 80% of the scientists.

In many countries bright young people want to do research and publish, have to publish, but they do not. A primary reason for this is Stataphobia which is the fear of research design and statistics, and not having access to people who can help. Eighty percent of all rejected articles are due to poor research methods.

 The Bibliotheca Alexandrina (Library of Alexandria) is please to offer the Bibliotheca Alexandria Research Library.  This is one of the largest and comprehensive collections of research methods. It represents a one stop Library to answer your research methods question.
