Literature review is usually first and one of the critical steps of a research project and we all yearn for an online resource where all the desired information is available at one place. Wouldn’t it be great if you could actually use the efforts that you would spend in doing the literature review for your upcoming final year project (BTP) to build a knowledge base that would benefit all the future students/research scholars worldwide? What more, you would enhance your own domain knowledge which will come handy at the time of placements or higher studies application. All this in form of a paid internship! Sounds too good to be true? Why not apply and find out. The last date to apply is 15th May 2012 – hurry!
