SSUS Centre for Academic Writing (SCAW)

About Us:
The Centre for Academic Writing, SSUS aims to create a watermark impression of SSUS in the world of academia through publication. Academic presence through publication would enable SSUS to find a unique position in popular and academic spaces in the world map. Efficiency and proficiency in academic writing would ensure the qualitative and quantitative development in this knowledge building process.  The Centre would cater to the writing needs of scholars (students, scholars and faculty members) from within and outside the university for academic publishing, facilitate in the development of skills in content writing, copy editing and translation etc. The thrust over developing academic writing skills and publishing in multilingual domains would enhance its relevance both in SSUS and in the state of Kerala.  
The SCAW would establish itself as the premier state of art centre for creation of quality academic input and ensure that the knowledge produced in Kerala finds itself in the global map through academic publication.  It would in due course of time establish itself as a sustainable unit catering to the academic requirements of the community within the State and outside.
