Preliminary Reviews for Your Full Paper with the world-class publication “Steering Committee” prior to the conference

One of the major issues faced by novice researchers/authors in the present setting are the lack of perspectives to improve writing for academic publications. As a “PUBLISHelp” is introduced by TIIKM to help authors develop their full papers prior to the conference. Once the request is been made, a steering committee member will be assigned to provide the author with developmental comments for the improvement of the full paper. Our main goal is to assist our conference participants to keep one step ahead to improve their valuable research papers.


  • This project is designed to help researchers/authors who aspire to develop their full papers up to the standard of high quality academic journals


Obtain experts’ inputs to improve your paper

  • We assist you to obtain constructive inputs and different perspectives from qualified scholars. This will help strengthen the quality of your paper. Reviewed and revised paper with a world-class scientific committee will make your paper more likely to be accepted by high standard journals.

Ability to gain tips to strengthen your presentation

Help develop academic writing skills
