The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) held the two-day forum on scientific paper and patent writing, in partnership with the International University of Rabat (UIR), COMSATS University Islamabad – Pakistan (CUI), the National Center for Scientific and Technical Research (CNRST) in Morocco, and Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam.
The event brought together the Federal Minister for Science and Technology of Pakistan as well as several academicians, researchers, and students from all over the world. The forum kicked off yesterday at ICESCO headquarters with large participation as well on the Zoom platform.
During the opening session, Dr. Raheel Qamar, Head of Science and Technology Sector at ICESCO, thanked all partners and participants for holding the important forum, to help academicians and researchers improve their performance and hone their skills in writing scientific papers and patents.
“It also aims at fostering innovation and creativity in the Member States. This large participation from all over the world is a major success despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Scientific paper and patent writing is an art that should be mastered,” he underscored.
In his address, Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, ICESCO Director-General (DG), revealed the Organization’s strategy to overcome the challenges and problems facing most universities and scientific research centers in Member States.
“This strategy is based on four axes: supporting innovative research through the provision of 300 scholarships, launching ICESCO Innovation Award, developing a new comprehensive program for environmental innovation and green technology transfer, in cooperation with many partners, and launching a program for establishing and networking incubators and technological pools in ICESCO’s Member States,” he underlined.
Dr. AlMalik added that ICESCO looks forward to further cooperation with international partners, research centers, and universities inside and outside the Islamic world to achieve its strategic objectives. The goals include supporting scientific research and innovation in the Islamic world by sharing the best practices among the Member States to develop a mechanism for regional assistance and complementarity in capacity-building.
Mr. Fawad Chaudhry, Pakistani Federal Minister for Science and Technology, highlighted the need for developing the infrastructures to achieve a comprehensive and integrated education, and contribute to the promotion of scientific research. He also shared Pakistan’s experience in establishing scientific schools and specialized colleges in different branches of technology.
Dr. Matthias Beller, Vice President of Leibniz Institute, stressed the need for the development of science to improve societies because the current technology will not solve future problems. He also made a presentation on scientific paper outline, stating that the writer should specify the goal behind publishing prior to writing a scientific paper without using materials from previous publications while citing the bibliography.
Dr. Mohamed Boulmalf, Dean of the School of Computer Science and Digital Engineering at UIR, highlighted the importance and the main elements of a scientific paper’s outline. He also underscored the role of graphics in enriching the scientific paper while highlighting their types and forms.
Dr. Kacem Rharrabe, Professor at Abdelmalek Essadi University in Morocco, tackled the elements of good scientific paper writing.
Dr. Hans de Vries, Head of the Department of Catalysis with Renewable Resources at Leibniz Institute, reviewed the major steps in scientific paper writing starting from editing until publication.
