The Calicut University has decided to promote research by  undertaking a host of steps to increase the research output in its departments. The institution has set up a quality assurance committee (QAC) to ensure the quality of research programmes undertaken by students. It has also made it mandatory for PhD students to undertake regular course work as part of the doctoral programme.

A new directorate of research has been formed which will constitute separate wings to help students in publishing research works, preparing research projects and for documentation. Advice of retired guides in the departments will be sought to enable more students to join PhD programmes.

According to TOI, the university has already recognized eight institutions as research centres and ratified the appointment of 31 research guides. Now a guide can accommodate up to eight research scholars, which was limited to five earlier. Those employed in government and private sector will be allowed to take up part-time research.

It has also been made mandatory for students to have their works published in reputed journals before they submit the PhD thesis. The varsity has also instituted a ‘Vice Chancellor’s medal’ for the best published research work.
