STAFF REPORT ISB: Pakistan spent Rs 54.7 billion on the development of higher education, over 6,000 research articles are published annually without showing any practical results. The reason for this is that our researchers do not write papers which have any practical value; they are only for theoretical knowledge.
According to experts, the Pakistani PhDs do not conduct any research in practical fields, not even fields such as Biotechnology or Medical science, instead, they find topics which require only theoretical study for research.
They said that development in a country lies on the shoulders of its academia, but our scholars are doing research just for the sake of research. They suggested we should know that the sole purpose of research is to serve society and the govt will have to make all the educational institutions accountable regarding research papers.
