In a bid to improve the quality of research, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has come out with a book on ‘Academic Integrity and Research Quality’.

The book comprises l6 well-researched articles covering the basic parameters of ethics. publishing codes and principles of research across diverse disciplines. It is available as a e-book on UGC website ( https://www. ugc.ag.in/ebook.aspx ).

It is pertinent to mention here that UGC has taken the initiative of ‘Quality Mandate’ which emphasizes the importance of promoting high-quality research and creating new knowledge by faculty members. The UGC established a Consortium For Academic Research and Ethics (CARE) which is a step towards enhancing research capacity, nurturing research culture and promoting academic and research integrity as well as publication ethics in the Indian Universities and Colleges.

“All the universities and colleges are advised to take appropriate measures to adopt academic research practices for the community of researchers to improve the quality of research and academic integrity as well as publication ethics mentioned in the book,” the UGC notice read.

Apart from this, the UGC has developed an "Educational Framework for Global Citizenship in Higher Education" which would provide conceptual clarity on how Higher education institutions can integrate the concept of Global Citizenship amongst the students through teaching, pedagogy and research.

The concept of Global Citizenship and Global Citizenship Education (GCED) has also been given prominence in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
