The Institute of Chemistry of Additives of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS) has carried out сertification of doctoral students, dissertators and second-year undergraduates studying full-time and part-time in the specialties “Organic Chemistry” and “Petrochemistry” and leading scientific research.
The director of the institute, academician Vagif Farzaliyev said that one of the main functions of each scientific institution is to train highly qualified personnel. Thus, every scientific specialist who continues his scientific activity in doctoral studies and dissertations, receiving a corresponding scientific degree, contributes to society as a whole. Therefore, scientific supervisors must approach with responsibility the choice of topics for dissertations, as well as the preparation of doctoral students and dissertators as scientists of the future, taking into account the modern challenges of world science. V.Farzaliyev noted with regret that sometimes doctoral students and dissertation candidates were irresponsible in their scientific work, they were sure that their scientific advisers could write articles and abstracts instead.
According to the academician, although the coronavirus pandemic interfered with the implementation of experimental work in the laboratory, on the contrary, it provided doctoral students and dissertators with additional opportunities to write and publish monographs, articles and conference abstracts.
The meeting discussed the results of the examination session of doctoral students, dissertators and undergraduates, the state of the implementation of research works according to individual work plans, the number of published articles, participation in scientific conferences, as well as issues related to dissertations.
