A seven-day faculty development program begins at SMS Varanasi. The main theme of this seven day FDP is "Systematic Literature Review and Bibliometric Analysis".

Welcoming the guests, Director of SMS Varanasi, Prof. P.N. Jha said that this seven-day FDP has been prepared under the new education policy in true sense. Outlining the objectives of the FDP, Prof. P. N. Jha said that this seven-day FDP would undoubtedly help teachers and researchers to do research in the right direction.
The chief guest of the inaugural session Prof. P.K. Mishra said that New technology such as AI has brought rapid changes in the field of research. India situation in the field of fundamental research is very worrying, in such a situation, it is necessary that research should be done by keeping the right research method and clear research objectives.
Distinguished Prof. Sumit Narula emphasized on identifying fake and cloned research journals in the field of research. He said that the network of fake research journals has spread globally, there is a need to create a common network to avoid them. Prof. Narula told that there are many research journals not only nationally but also globally which extract money from researchers and teachers in the name of publishing research papers by showing fake impact factors. Your research paper should be published in journals only after thoroughly examining the research journals. The inaugural session was moderated by Dr. Bhavna Singh.
