I Am Done With Honorary Awards, Says Soyinka by NairaMedia: 11:18pm On Nov 23, 2018
The Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka on Friday said he was done with the conferment of Honorary awards on him.
He said this while receiving an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Letters at the convocation ceremony of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
“This is an institution where in the same town and state is where I took my first steps to learning. So it is symmetrical, it is a closure. I said this is symbolical way to end my teaching career. But there is one thing which I thought that suppose this is the last honorary degree I receive from anywhere, what a beautiful closure it is” he said.
“The reason I am announcing it now is because I can always use you, this institution, this town, all the royalties present, the students will hear, as a witness to this day, that the next time I am invited to accept any honorary degree, I will politely decline. I would say I have made a promise not to accept anymore”.
“So this is it, no more. I cannot think of a more appropriate place to say this is the last honor I am receiving from anywhere. This is it and you all are witness to it”.

How do some people publish several academic papers a year?
Composing for scholarly journals is exceptionally aggressive. Regardless of whether you conquer the primary obstacle and create a profitable thought or bit of research – how would you at that point total it up in a way that will catch the enthusiasm of commentators?

There’s no basic recipe for getting distributed – editors’ desires can change both between and inside branches of knowledge. However, there are a few difficulties that will stand up to every single scholastic author paying little heed to their control. By what means would it be advisable for you to react to analyst input? Is there a right method to structure a paper by any best academic writing services? Also, would it be advisable for you to dependably try overhauling and resubmitting? We solicited journal editors from a range from foundations for their tips on getting distributed.

1) Focus on a story that advances legitimately, as opposed to sequentially

Take some time before composing your paper to consider the rationale of the introduction. When composing, center around a story that advances sensibly, as opposed to the sequential request of the examinations that you did.

2) Don’t attempt to compose and alter in the meantime

Open a record on the PC and put in the entirety of your headings and sub-headings and after that fill in under any of the headings where you have the plans to do as such. In the event that you achieve your day by day focus on (mine is 500 words) put some other thoughts down as visual cues and quit composing; at that point utilize those visual cues to make a begin the following day.

3) Don’t cover your contention like a needle in a bundle

In the event that somebody asked you on the transport to rapidly clarify your paper, would you be able to do as such in clear, ordinary dialect? This reasonable contention ought to show up in your theoretical and in the plain first section (even the main line) of your paper. Try not to make us chase for your contention with respect to a needle in a pile. In the event that it is covered up on page seven that will simply make us irritated. Goodness, and ensure your contention runs completely through the diverse areas of the paper and ties together the hypothesis and exact material.

4) Ask a partner to check your work

One of the issues that journal editors confront is gravely composed papers. It may be that the essayist’s first dialect isn’t English and they haven’t gone the additional mile to get it edit. It very well may be difficult to work out what is happening in an article if the dialect and grammar are poor.

5) Get distributed by composing an audit or a reaction

Composing audits is a decent method to get distributed – particularly for individuals who are in the beginning times of their profession. It’s an opportunity to rehearse at composing a piece for distribution, and get a free duplicate of a book that you need. We distribute a bigger number of audits than papers so we’re always searching for analysts.

A few journals, including our own, distribute answers to papers that have been distributed in a similar journal. Editors very jump at the chance to distribute answers to past papers since it invigorates exchange.

6) Don’t disregard global readers

We get individuals who compose from America who expect everybody knows the American framework – and the equivalent occurs with UK scholars. Since we’re a worldwide journal, we require scholars to incorporate that global setting.

7) Don’t endeavor to pack your PhD into a 6,000 word paper

Here and there individuals need to toss everything in on the double and hit an excessive number of destinations. We get individuals who endeavor to disclose to us their entire PhD in 6,000 words and it simply doesn’t work. More experienced scholars will compose a few papers from one anticipate, utilizing a particular part of their research as a snare.

cool Pick the correct journal: it’s an awful sign on the off chance that you don’t perceive any of the publication board

Watch that your article is inside the extent of the journal that you are submitting to. This appears to be so evident yet it’s amazing what number of articles are submitted to journals that are totally wrong. It is an awful sign on the off chance that you don’t perceive the names of any individuals from the article board. In a perfect world glance through various late issues to guarantee that it is distributing articles on a similar point and that are of comparative quality and effect.

9) Always pursue the right entries techniques

Frequently writers don’t put in the 10 minutes it takes to peruse the directions to writers which squanders colossal amounts of time for both the writer and the proofreader and stretches the procedure when it doesn’t have to.

Academic writing services are also playing a key role in it.

10) Don’t rehash your theoretical in the introductory letter

We look to the introductory letter for a sign from you about what you believe is most intriguing and huge about the paper, and why you think it is a solid match for the journal. There is no compelling reason to rehash the conceptual or experience the substance of the paper in detail – we will peruse the paper itself to discover what it says. The introductory letter is a place for a greater picture plot, in addition to whatever other data that you might want us to have.

11) A typical explanation behind dismissals is absence of setting

Ensure that it is clear where your research sits inside the more extensive insightful scene, and which holes in information it’s tending to. A typical purpose behind articles being rejected after companion audit is this absence of setting or absence of lucidity concerning why the examination is vital.

12) Don’t over-express your technique

Ethnography is by all accounts the stylish technique for the occasion, so bunches of articles submitted guarantee to be founded on it. Be that as it may, closer assessment uncovers very constrained and standard meeting information. A few meetings in a bistro don’t comprise ethnography. Be clear – right off the bat – about the nature and extent of your information accumulation. The equivalent goes for the utilization of hypothesis. On the off chance that a hypothetical knowledge is valuable to your examination, utilize it reliably all through your contention and content.
