Work and Publish in Collaboration

August 8th, 2019    APIAR


APIAR has decided to promote a platform for academics and researchers to work in collaboration where the main objective would be to publish in the ABDC/SCIMAGO indexed journals. It can sometimes be challenging to form a group to conduct research with other researchers, for various reasons. An international platform like this would address this issue, so that academics/researchers could form groups and publish in top-ranked journals. At this stage, this option is available only to experienced researchers with a proven record of quality publications. 

Minimum criteria to avail yourself of this opportunity:

  1. A minimum of 100 Google citations.
  2. Proven ability to publish in a short period of time.
  3. Expertise in Business, Education, Social Sciences and ICT-related areas.

What we are offering:

  1. Assistance in forming groups to work together.
  2. Mentoring for publications.
  3. Free international conference participation to share research findings with the academic community.
  4. A sponsored trip as a keynote speaker in our conferences.
  5. A limited amount of funding can be provided for future projects. 

Please note that there will be no upfront funding or scholarship for this initiative.

If you meet the above criteria and are interested in being part of this initiative, send your resume to [email protected].

Collaboration With webQDA

December 28th, 2018    APIAR

It is a great pleasure for us to share the news with you all that APIAR is collaborating with webQDA (qualitative data-analysis software) to assist researchers with their data analysis. Every best paper winner at APIAR conferences will be awarded with a free 90-day license to explore this software.

webQDA is a software to support the analysis of qualitative data in a collaborative and distributed environment. Although there are some software packages that address non-numeric and unstructured data(text, image, video, audio) in qualitative analysis, there are few that can be used by several researchers in a collaborative work environment and distributed as the Internet can offer. webQDA is a software directed to researchers in different contexts, that need to analyze qualitative data, individually or collaboratively, synchronously or asynchronously.

webQDA follows the structural and theoretical design of other programs available in the market, differentiating itself by providing online, real-time collaborative work and a service that supports the research process.

With webQDA the researcher can edit, view, link and organize documents. At the same time they can create categories, code, manage, filter, search and question the data in order to answer the questions that emerge in their research.
