Extended Abstract

An extended abstract is not simply a lengthy abstract. An extended abstract shall be of 3 to 8 pages. It should comprise all the headings namely Title, Aim, Theoretical background, Methodology, Resources (such as equipment and data banks), Discussion on results and Conclusion, all compiled in a very concise form. A short list of key References (6 – 10) should be included. 

Article

The CSER articles are the extracts or analects of original engineering project reports/dissertations. The articles submitted to the Compendium are peer reviewed, indexed and published online. The CSER articles shall typically range from 8 pages to 24 pages. The CSER articles shall typically include chapters on the scope and aim of the work, literature pertaining to the work, description/narration of methods and means, discussion on results achieved and conclusions arrived at. The articles shall essentially have sections, namely, Abstract,  briefed up sections of the project report, references and recommendations for future work, and others if needed. A separate annexure shall include the photographs of the team members, fabrications and other minutes of the project making. The best project works/articles/reports will be selected to be published as a Book Chapter. Projects of exceptional quality will be selected for Patent Scholarship Scheme, ie. CSER will bear the cost of patenting in the country of publication.

Project Reports

The CSER publishes project reports/theses/dissertations originated from the academic work done by the students of science, engineering and management programs. A thesis is a long piece of writing that comprises of one’s main idea, theory of a person or a group, applications of principles of science, engineering and management. Traditionally, theses are submitted to the educational institutions in hard copies and are stored in conventional libraries. CSER facilitates the online repository for the project reports, which can be retrieved anytime, anywhere. The students may use the Project Management System (PMS) embedded with the CSER to compile their reports. After compiling the project reports, the student may choose to publish the thesis to ensure that the reports are easily accessible by the peer researchers, higher educational institutions and employers. Often, students choose to upload their Project Reports along with Power Point Presentations so as to enable their potential employers and recruiters to review at a glance.

Presentations

The CSER offers the option of uploading the power point presentations to publish in more presentable version that may be of 5 to 20 slides. The authors may use any format and design for the presentation not exceeding the limits of slides. Generally, a good project presentation will showcase all the sections of the final project reports including photographs and references. 

Poster

A poster is a concise summary of the project or research work. A well designed poster combines main text summary with graphs, tables and pictures. A poster must include title, names of authors , affiliations, emails and contact details. All posters shall include an abstract in 300 to 400 words along with a list of 2 to 5 references to support the content. Abstract should include sufficient information to enable the review panel to understand the purpose, methods, result discussion and conclusions of the work.
