I noticed that some universities which are coming up recently have started offering M.Phil. & Ph.D. degrees in LIS. They do not have a LIS department or teachers or professors who can meticulously plan and conduct the courses.They charge high amounts towards the fee. Professionals who want to secure degrees without much effort tend to join the courses.
How far do you think it is justified that the highest degrees which require scholarship and contribute for the development of the LIS profession are offered so casually. The departments/ universities offering M.Phil & Ph.D. degrees should follow certain systematic procedures in the selection of Research Supervisors, conducting workshops and training sessions in Research Methodology, use and application of statistical tools and techniques, presentations, seminars etc. before award of the degrees.
