Founded in 2015, the ‘Eurasian Doctoral Student Academy’ (EDSA) entails the vision of being a goal-oriented platform used by academicians to further scientific studies. EDSA´s focus is on harmonizing the scientific method towards a ‘Generally Accepted Scientific Method’ (GASM) within the realm of social sciences across various academic cultures around the globe with Eurasia as its departure point. In doing so, EDSA assists Post-Graduate Candidates, Graduate Students, Researchers and Scholars in their work, networking needs, cooperation and research collaboration.

EDSA has its mission in providing a plethora of platforms such as annual gatherings, conferences, symposiums, publishing platforms, networking forums, individual assistance in research, training programs via a cadre of senior international distinguished professors in partnership with universities around the world and academically oriented organizations as its support.

II. Key Features & Benefits of EDSA
