1. Introduction:
Research Tools”can be defined as vehicles that broadly
facilitate research and related activities. Scientific tools enable researchers
to collect, organize, analyze, visualize and publicized 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 and efficiency. 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
, 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 from the four
main nodes will be described.The e-skills learned from the workshop are useful
across various research disciplines and research institutions.

2. Problem statements:
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
  • “I have been in
    research for some time now but I spend a lot of time to get the articles I
  • “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.

3. Objectives
The workshop seeks to serve
the following objectives:
I.  To discover how to
use more efficient the tools that are available through the Net.
II.  To help students who
seek to reduce the search time by expanding the knowledge of
researchers to more effectively
use the "tools" that are available through the Net.
III. To evaluate the types of
literature that researchers will encounter.
IV. To convert the information
of the search for a written document.
V. To help researchers learn
how to search and analyze the right journal to submit.

4. Who should attend?
  • Researchers at
    any experience and skill level
  • Research
    supervisors and research managers
  • Anyone
    interested in carrying out the research process
The workshop will bring the
following benefits for the attendees:
  • Expanding and
    developing a knowledge base for research related tasks and activities
  • Effective presentation and communication of research to the scientific world
  • Attracting a
    higher level of comments and citations from other researchers
  • Gaining more
    academic visibility
  • Finding and
    formulating a suitable research topic
  • Developing high
    quality academic proposals, theses and articles
