Refer to Junior Sabena Mutabazi’s article, “Improve research skills to tackle plagiarism” (The New Times, October 30). Every rector must read this article and act accordingly. It is such an important article and I am glad it has been written from such an informative angle.
Over the years, it has been proven that good research leads to new and innovative ideas. Many institutions abroad invest heavily in research and development, and unless we start teaching our students the basics of research, we stand no chance of coming up with innovative ideas.
And on that note, I thank The New Times for bringing to our attention such an important subject.
