Research forms an integral part of the educational system at CMS and is headed by Dr. B. SUMATHI. CMS promotes interdisciplinary research and encourages its teaching faculty to undertake research activities by providing Research them with seed money for minor and major research projects
The Research Cell serves as the apex body for monitoring research activities, with the following objectives:
The CMS Board, management as well as the faculty were unanimous in the need for the institution to develop the consultancy services to the corporate world as well as the other stakeholders in the society, at large.
As a measure of fostering and promoting consultancy at CMS, it was agreed to tap the present academia-institution framework.
A committee at the college level, named CMS CONSULTANCY COMMITTEE, may be formed under the Centre for Research and Development.
The committee will be empowered with identification of thrust areas and finalization of MOUs and other formal arrangements of co-operation between the institution and the business world.
Also, the Board agreed that the fruits of the consultancy activity need to be shared with all the individuals involved in this exercise. Accordingly, it was agreed that faculty members who receive fees for consultancy assignments can use it for completing their assignment and need not share their remuneration with the Institution unless the Institution’s resources are utilized. In case of utilization of Resources the remuneration will be shared by Institution, Management and faculty consultant with the ratio of 20:60:20 respectively.
Ethics are moral principles to be followed in society. While these questions are very important in the lives of human beings, ethics also play a critical role in the education and academic domains.
The following code of conduct has been spelt out for use by the entire academic fraternity at CMS. Violations of this code, by any one, will be dealt with strongly and swiftly, without exception.
While the academic fraternity the world over unanimously agree on free sharing and exchange of knowledge, data, information, views, ideas and opinions, they are simultaneously highly critical of any act of plagiarism and cheating.
Cases of plagiarism are the use of material, ideas, figures, code or data without appropriate acknowledgment or permission (in some cases) of the original source. This may involve submission of material, verbatim or paraphrased, that is authored by another person or published earlier by oneself. Examples of plagiarism include: (a) Reproducing, in whole or part, text/sentences from a report, book, thesis, publication or the internet. (b) Reproducing one’s own previously published data, illustrations, figures, images, or someone else’s data, etc. (c) Taking material from class-notes or downloading material from Internet sites, and incorporating it in one’s class reports, presentations, manuscripts or thesis without citing the original source. (d) Self plagiarism which constitutes copying verbatim from one’s own earlier published work in a journal or conference proceedings without appropriate citations.
Cheating is another form of unacceptable academic behavior and may be classified into different categories: (a) Copying during exams, and copying of homework assignments, term papers or manuscripts. (b) Allowing or facilitating copying, or writing a report or exam for someone else. (c) Using unauthorized material, copying, collaborating when not authorized, and purchasing or borrowing papers or material from various sources (d) Fabricating (making up) or falsifying (manipulating) data and reporting them in thesis and publications.
The following guidelines for academic conduct must be observed by all concerned.
All articles / manuscripts / theses of M.Phil / Ph.D should be submitted to the CRD (Centre for Research and Development) of the college, for the verification of Plagiarism using Plagiarism Checker X Pro version software. If the report generated by the software gives a score of less than 20%, it will be approved for submission to University / Publication. If it is more than 20%, the research scholar will be asked to resubmit the same, until the score reaches a level lesser than 20%.
