Effectiveness in research output is based on several aspects like developing skills to be able to convey good reasons to believe and accept the conclusions made, deal with the criticisms that may come one’s way from the supervisor, the reviewers or the examiners, and the ability to use the peer review process to one’s advantage to do research that has an impact and contributes to one’s field of study.
