We discussed the steps that must be followed to successfully author and publish research, and touched upon how to choose suitable journals to submit research to. The Deanship also trained MEU’s faculty members on how to use the statistical analysis SPSS software, and worked on developing their citation skills.”
The training courses, which were supervised by Dr. Basil Abu Foudeh, gave attendees an introduction to SPSS and familiarised them with the standard statistical methods for data analysis.
