There is a need for academicians and researchers to publish the work they do. It preserves the scholarly record for the use of future generations, and many a time, can save the time and energy of others from working on the same topic or sometimes, will help others to improve on the existing ideas. While enhancing scienti�c knowledge by documentation, one immediate bene�t for scholars is the academic credits they receive in the form of promotions and �nancial incentives at work place. It also enhances academicians' standing in scienti�c community and helps in obtaining research grants.
