Should Scholarly Publication be included in the Graduate School Assessment?
There is much controversy about whether scholarly publications should be included in graduate school graduation examinations. In many Asian countries, colleges and universities make the publication of academic papers an important part of the graduation assessment. To some extent, there is nothing wrong with this assessment, but since students have to publish their theses within a specified time frame, it puts a lot of pressure and burden on their academic research. It is very important at the postgraduate level, especially to master the ability to conduct academic research rather than academic publication. This is because good scholarly publication takes time. It is not good for students if they publish low-quality papers because of the pressure of assignments. So, in my opinion, academic publication should not be a part of the graduate school graduation assessment. If graduate students know how to do research, they will naturally have fruitful and high quality publications when they enter the academic world.
