Introduction

Research
Tools
”can be defined as vehicles that broadly facilitate research and
related activities. Scientific tools enable researchers to collect,
organize, analyze, visualize andpublicized research  outputs. Dr.
Nader has collected over 700 tools that enable students to follow the
correct path in research and to ultimately produce high-quality research
outputs with more accuracy andefficiency. It is assembled as an interactive
Web-based mind map, titled “Research
Tools
”, which is updated periodically.

Research
Tools
” consists of a hierarchical set of nodes. It has four main nodes:
(1) Searching the literature,
(2) Writing a paper, (3) Targeting suitable journals,
and (4) Enhancing visibility and
impact of the research
, and six auxiliary nodes. Several free tools can
be found in the child nodes. Some paid tools are also included. In this
workshop some tools as examples fromthe four main nodes will be
described.The e-skills learned from the workshop are useful across various
research disciplines and research institutions.


Problems statement

Research can be time consuming and sometimes tedious. The following
statements capture some of the main concerns of the researchers as faced in
the research process:



• “I just join as a new postgraduate student and I am
not sure how to do a literature search”

• “I have been in research for some time now but I
spend a lot of time to get the articles I want”

• “I am sure I have downloaded the article but I am
not able to find it”

• “I wanted to write a new paper, how can I manage the
references in the shortest possible time?”

• “I have many references, some of my old papers, and
some of my current research. Sometimes, they are so many that I can’t
recall where I have kept them in my folders!”

• ……..

• “I have written an article and I am not able to find
a proper Journal”

• "I want to increase the citation of my papers,
how can I do?"
Can research become , easier, more fun and more result-oriented? The
answer to this question is YES. We need an effective search strategy which
can save hours of wasted research time and provide a clear direction for
your research.
