A short note on research and publications

I believe that the advancement of science and innovation can be accelerated faster if information can be shared freely among scholars, scientists and to a wider community.

My indexed publications and peer review contributions


Google Scholar is a freely accessible web search engine that indexes the full text or metadata of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines.


Scopus is Elsevier’s abstract and citation database launched in 2004. In 2009, Scopus developed an objective system of evaluation and validation of peer-reviewed journals.


Web of Science is an online subscription-based scientific citation indexing service originally produced by the Institute for Scientific Information, now maintained by Clarivate Analytics.


Publons is a website and free service for academics to track, verify and showcase their peer review and editorial contributions across the world’s academic journals.

A short note 

It’s been more than 20 years I have been in scientific research. Many research results have been produced in the form of scientific publications. However, it should be asked, whether the result of research is useful or not? I need to do a self-introspection.

According to the teachings of Islam that I believe in, in order to the research gives the benefit, the research should begin with the good intention. The intention of doing research is the same as the search for knowledge. Seeking the truth. The best intention is to achieve a noble character and beneficial to humanity. We’re taught that do not intend to seek knowledge to the pursuit of wealth and popularity. Or just to show off, as we saw in the scientific world, such as the h-index, impact factor of publications and so on. This is not blessed by Allah SWT.
