BRBD: A unique platform for young researchers

Md. Monirul Islam and Kazi Naeem Riaz, June 27 2021

Research work is a difficult and challenging part for young researchers. Due to a lack of necessary resources and guidelines, they cannot concentrate on research work properly. Many students lose interest in research due to various reasons, including lack of cooperation of experts, ignorance about necessary tools, complexities in research publication, and insufficient funds. As a result, a country is able to produce enough quality researchers.

A platform called ‘Be Research BD’ has emerged as a beacon for young and promising researchers in such a situation. Overcoming the fear of research, the path of creating a research-friendly environment BRBD began with this open platform for teaching research. The platform is now showing the way of research to the researchers across the world.
