days faculty development program on advanced research methodology so organized by department of civil engineering dr ngp institute of technology in association with the institution of engineers india kaimutu center so now i welcome dr pimoto priyama head of the department department of civil engineering dr ngp institute of technology to give the welcome address good morning dr johnson very nice to meet you yeah good morning thank you thank you yeah dr muthu priya please you can turn on your video as well very good morning to one and all present here i am really privileged to have the pleasant task of welcoming the distinguished gathering for today’s inauguration on the occasion of faculty development program on advanced research methodology i would like to thank our management chairman dr nalaji palani swami and motivating us to conduct this faculty development program they have supported very well in all aspects for successfully organizing this faculty development program on behalf of department of civil engineering dr ngp institute of technology on my own behalf i warmly and respectfully welcome our today’s chief guest professor dr johnson associate professor director center for innovative construction technology department of civil engineering university of malaya kuala lumpur malaysia i am really welcome our most respected principal dr su prabha for this faculty development program on advanced research methodology uh thank you sir thank you madam for your time guidance and presence also i want to mention the other two speakers who accepted to deliver keynote address in this three days faculty development program professor khalifa al zabri professor department of civil and architectural engineering college of engineering sultan cubase university woman and dr yes sansanval former head and dean department of education davey university campus hindu india thank you sirs for your acceptance we are really honored i am very much pleased uh in welcoming other department heads and directors and all the faculty members for this faculty development program on the research methodology also i would like to welcome all the participants from various parts of india and tamilnadu your participation is our success thank you all i hope this fdp will enable you to acquire a strong idea and base for research on its outcomes definitely this program is going to be a great and beneficial program for all the participants and i would like to mention the schedule for today’s speaker professor associate professor university of malaya will deliver on research without borders exemplification of sprouting research to ramification next year tomorrow the speaker will deliver on technology transfer from research to entrepreneurship and third day speaker sansan walt former head and dean uh university of education david university will deliver on improving quality of research and finally once again i would like to welcome all of you for this three days fdp thank you all thank you so thank you mom happy morning to all of you so today all of us are here in order to understand some of the concepts underlying principles of civil engineering department first and foremost i take the opportunity to welcome our chief guest of today dr johnson university of malaya kuala lumpur malaysia fondly i remember sir i wanted to share with you and also to the audience i was attached with the multimedia university malaysia malacca campus from 2002 until 2012 and i have a very great experience at malaysia and i fondly remember those days when i was working as a faculty attached with faculty of engineering and technology and this fdp has been organized for the benefit of faculty members and my appreciation to the department of civil engineering and the institution of engineers india to identify the speakers who are having a rich experience in their respective domain and i wish all the very best to the department of civil engineering of dr ngpi tech and this fdp on advanced research methodology will definitely give lots and lots of insights to all the participants so it is a very very welcoming attitude of the participants to get registered in such kind of programs and getting a kept to yourself as far as your domain knowledge is concerned and we have to accept the fact that the charm of the core engineering departments are slightly falling down and it is the responsibility of the faculty members to get equipped themselves as far as the latest technologies in your respective domain and incorporate the new research methodologies and the things in order to explore well in your domain of interest with this few words i once again on behalf of the management and on my own behalf i take the opportunity to welcome our chief guest today dr johnson dr muthu priya who has been keenly working with the ie india to make this program successful along with her team of faculty members also uh all the heads of the departments who have been supportive in each and every action that is being taking place at the institution and all the participants who have passionately registered for this three days faculty development program i am very sure that these three days will give you some insights as far as the advanced research methodology in your own competency domain and you will gain some outcomes at the end of the program thank you mr vignesh for acting as the moc and thanks to each and every one of you and let your learning give you lots and lots of success in your professional career thank you so much for the opportunity thank

kindly take over the sessions thank you sir thank you very much kumar for the last introduction at the outset i’d like to express my heartfelt attitude to your management in fact i remember fondly remember dr davapani when she was at the airport in kuala lumpur international airport a few years back when she visited so i would like to express my gratitude to dr nala ji palin swami chairman of kmch dr daumani swami secretary of your institution uh chief executive dr pavaneshwaran and of course principal dr prabha who mentioned that she was in malaysia for over 10 years and got a very rich experience on research more than others some of us so thank you principal and your leadership i’m sure uh you your institution will grow from you know from from one stage to the next stage and also i’m grateful to dr muthu priya uh priya has been a wonderful leader organizer and enthusiastic she always uh tries to motivate others i feel she’s an asset to the institution so head of the department of civil engineering uh ngpit principally professor freya i’m actually thank you also and thus those who have been working along with you so i’m really i’m thankful to everyone for this organizing this just a few words because i’m going to continue so the good news is that i will finish my my this uh chief guest address in a couple of minutes or few minutes but the bad news is you have to be put up with me for another couple of hours for listening to me because i will go through some of the important aspects which might be useful for some of you i thought this is mostly from your institution but i see from the list probably they are from different states so i can’t speak in tamil probably i have to restrict to only you know english so please bear with me i don’t know how you are able to hear my voice voice clearly yesterday thank you thank you very much first of all i know i when i was in france um few probably 2076 five years back i happened to meet some of the students i brought some of the materials with me when i was explaining to them about the research ongoing research in university malaya then after the session was over they came to me and said oh we don’t know about this kind of research we want to you know see whether we can visit us then they came all the way from france to be with us for three months and learned a lot of things they were so blessed so when i was thinking about them or students from india i think ssn college of engineering in coimbato they also visited us probably 15 of them including staff then students from china morocco algeria or other countries some of them you know they came here to malaysia to just learn and we also tell them we also learn from you because the research is something that it’s not from just one person it’s all interlinked between one person to another over the years we developed research it’s not that what one year you can have your research output it takes a lot of efforts from nowhere you have to go step by step so research is a very important category in projecting our universities or institutions to the highest caliber for example look at china they want to take over from america you look at the harvard university or mit or any other top universe oxford or cambridge all these universities even national university of singapore they’re all in the top caliber i think it’s very difficult to reach out to them then it’s not easy even to you know go and communicate with some of the professors because they are very highly esteemed professors where are we do we have enough appetite do we have enough first for research i was in china many times when i went to different universities they have upgraded to the levels that you we can’t imagine i was visiting one university called tianjin university the laboratory alone one laboratory alone probably few hundred meters and they have had all the they have all the facilities and when i look at these facilities and this kind of infrastructure latest sophisticated advanced technological equipments with that infusing the knowledge research knowledge to the academics and academics that’s where the success starts so i would encourage those who are in this meeting today research is not an easy job it’s a tough it requires sacrifices it requires more and more patience and sometimes you know it requires lot of facilities most of the research requires advanced facilities but with the available facilities can we have some successful research and outputs that should be our our thought today because we don’t have all the facilities in india in all the institutions i mean of course we have iits we have a regional uh we call regional engineering college those days now it’s converted to nits and there are many iits coming up and many research centers by the federal government central government so we need to see how we can utilize those for our advantage now today i will after this i will be explaining some of the features and how because my title is quite difficult for you some of you to understand maybe i just put it in a simplification preferred manner later on from a material to a product that’s what i mean and through it can be through um physical product it can be through a research publication it can be through you know through uh patent or through uh commercialization so there are many aspects tomorrow professor khalifa is a good one of my best friends he’s going to explain more on the entrepreneurship so i will not touch more on that but rather i would say that patent patenting your product protecting your product and bringing name to a country this is very very important how can we give an inch or how we can you know we just like a drop in an ocean we are like a drop in an ocean but we can become you know an entrepreneur university or research university one day the initiatives taken by your management and your principal ex past prince ex-principals and the current principal and the heads of the department and others i really appreciate this is very important without this kind of interactions we will not move forward so when we listen to somebody those who are from other countries that’s why i put research without borders there is no border for research i work with people from england i work with people in australia i work with people from china i work with people from india work with people from the france i work with people from u.s or any other country there is no border for research that’s the title my research our type today title research without borders so you can work anywhere all you need is appropriate contact sacrifice you know i i i would like to emphasize this sacrifice when my mother was taking me by foot walking eight kilometers to the school i still recall it without her sacrifice without her blood or without her my parents blood and sweat i wouldn’t be sitting here today talking to you so we always esteem where we came from so always think don’t think of a negative or the the aspects that are going to put you down always think of positive we can achieve we can achieve and we are here to deliver never ever underestimate your capacity you are going to be one of the finest researchers in india you can contribute to ngpit i am not university or any university you belong to no matter who you are where you are what is your academic qualification if you have a phd or not you can contribute in research and ultimately those who don’t have phd you will get your phds in due course so with that point i’d like to thank you again because we’re going to continue our deliberation after this and i’d like to express my artful gratitude and thanks to the management once again ngpit your nala uh your doctor respectively dr nala uh swami and dr dharmani and all the management team as well as the principal and your this uh our head of the department our beloved professor priya and everyone involved thank you and be blessed so thank you so much sir for your keynote very informative sir so we can start sir we can start now is it okay if i’m focused everybody okay now i can share my slides okay you can give me a minute because this is the google platform very easy for us give me a minute i’m just trying to find my slide okay [Applause] normally i use google very often give me a minute one minute [Applause] give me a minute i have some problem in presenting so okay sir okay sir [Music] i’ll just go back from this laptop and come back to another come give me a couple of minutes sorry so okay so no problems okay here we go and sorry for the delay because i was using another laptop but that one has some issue so can you see my slide so it’s visible sir visible okay can you hear me clearly because it’s a different laptop so it’s audible audio is clear sir sir okay uh today’s topic is on research without borders i put it like this exemplification of sprouting research to ramification so it’s quite complicated words but you know i just want to simplify it we can’t do research without an exemplification means to bring it to the to the top it’s sprouting means say we are it’s like a plant that sprouts from the ground it has to be shown outside after the the seeds converted into a plant or into anything so it’s like a seed we are sowing a sweet seed it has to grow and it has to yield fruits so when our universities have invested so much of money and time and the space and you know everything we have to utilize that all we need is our mind attitude so i always tell because of the attitude many of us if we don’t have the right attitude i think we will be somewhere we will never achieve our goals so today i would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge you know very importantly uh i might drive you may ask why i put drivers first so i once i was you know we have to go to a lot of places so once i was uh asking one of my people in the university you know take me to your particular place so no problem i i just always you know no problem he’s very humble very always helpful so only then on the way he said the only problem is for me you know when i driving i will sleep you know what will happen to you so the drivers are very important part of our research now we have to visit a lot of places very many many many places so i feel that drivers are very poor laboratory support staff co-researchers research scholars and our commercialization and innovation unit we call university of malaya commercial center for innovation and commercialization umcic industrial partners we have quite a number of industrial partners overseas research university partners we have not and also the journals we have indian publishing quite a number of journals so let me go to the uh this one also actually before that i already thanked everybody so i don’t want to take time then let me straight away go to this scholarly research on impact you know scholarly impact of research so how you can uh impact your research you know sometimes you can promote through these scholarly research tools and quality it also determines your quality you are to assess the potential for great grant funding because you are applying to uh maybe there is a department of science and technology or some understated government funding or international funding there are a lot of fundings available if you don’t get funding it’s quite difficult for you to start your research so you have to have a proper research i would call it as profile if you have a research profile say people look at your profile oh you have been working with uh somebody in malaysia singapore thailand or in in australia or in america or in england so it’s good we see that you have some potential because you have that communication asset and the job market you know you know when you have the research you can become an entrepreneur you can become you can start your own industry i know some of the students i am teaching i told them this take this to your industry maybe you have a backup or you want to start from square one you can do it and productivity these are the things for the research okay also how they are measuring us these are so-called correlated scholarly research now when you submit to a journal particular journal you are writing a journal article they you have a quality the research has a quality or not so you have to also look at the quality of the journal article reach where it can reach only within india only within state of tamil nadu or only within the you know southeast asia or does it reach beyond the border you have to see that reach of your article how does it influence our impact or can you disseminate your information to others properly and the researcher impact you as a researcher you have to have an impact on others okay this uh journals how do they when we i say we not me it’s the the research so called the measurements those you can have a web of science scopas or even google scholar or others there are some of these people how do they measure us you know as i mentioned journal level metrics okay you can use the journal level measure the quality of journal using citation formula you know citation is very very important when you publish an article it’s it’s cited by somebody in somewhere in america means you get a credit you cite your own journal 100 times you don’t get much credit because you are only the person you are citing your own article so how we can reach out to others and citation based or all metrics they call it as you know and also author level metrics measure bibliography impact of individual authors so these are some of the measuring tools or for us okay we use the journal level matrix or this is very important as well in university malaya we use this web of science we call clarinet analytics this web of science is a it’s it’s only consists of high impact journals or even you know they classify into different quartile q1 q2 q3 q4 so a journal maybe they enter into q4 category they can go to q1 category q1 is the thought so web of science is one of the important uh we call metrics that measures our our impact general uh impact or publication implant so we see that our university will not consider scopus much but only web of science certain universities only consider scopus and they cover probably 12 000 journals you know it’s it’s they call it as yes c ie science citation index expanded and for social science s s c i okay the many libraries has this is very costly you know there’s four web of science just come with the another one called general citation report i will show you later uh about myself or even other researchers how they are you know contributing through this jcr means the measurement of our research through gcr scopus covers quite broad some of the universities in india i think they accept scopus for us scopus is also acceptable however we are given more weightage for web of science journals this publication in website general is considered as the top so you can consider either web of science or scopus or even other there are many other journals even without without citations maybe some of us will start without without the proper metrics it’s okay to start but you have to move on from you know scopus next i must publish in web of science then you don’t stop there you go to the next q4 maybe q3 then go to q2 then go to the q1 the top index journals so it’s very important okay another is called general impact factor very important most well-known is it jrf you have to look i can show you later how you can measure the journal impact factor it’s quite important is this you know you can of course it has to be paid we cannot simply get it from online you have to get online but the university has to have subscription so from the general impact factor but for particular journal say for instance i say quartile one is considered the top journals they are giving you the five year indicators how the journal has been trending over the five last five years for example jf is a measure of frequency with which the average article published in a given scholarly journal that has been cited over a period in a year or five years let’s say five years we can check last five years what was the impact factor jif or something sometimes you call it fact factor this is very important to suggest whether i can publish in this journal or this so i get some of queries from india i suggest them okay i look at the article i see oh yeah okay better you go for this this particular level or this looks this journal looks very very highly written or maybe that the quality is very good you don’t go for q3 you go for q1 just submit it if they reject you reject the journal doesn’t matter because they will give you the reason for rejecting learn from there okay so this is very general impact factor can be found from jcr we call it general citation report am i clear anyone can those who are listening to me am i clear yes sir okay thank you very much so scopus based metrics so i i hope you can all see this scopus is freely available you can see that only the web of signs we need to this one we need to pay but this one this is freely available you can just have a look at it they also measure site score or source normalized impact or paper or sjr these are the some of the things they give you so another one this is article level matrix so how we can measure citation based and almetric measures can show how this uh know impact of individual research or your publication your publication you know i’m talking about publication now still i have not come to the research i’m going to the second stage or the final stage of your outcome from you know from your sprouting research to ramifications so through journals don’t stop right and right some countries they call publish or perish you know i just go to you know look at the thailand how big thailand is malaysia look at it so i think it’s almost we can compare this with the kerala state of canada uh almost 30 million people 30 plus million or three crores so how this you know this country they are the university of malaya where i’m working we call research university this is the number one in malaysia and the number 659 it was last year this year it’s going to be it’s a 2065 in the world among the probably 20 000. many thousand universities compared in the curious ranking i’m talking about the q s ranking now there are different rankings so we follow the q s ranking and um look at the level of publications our academic staff research researchers they have research unit they publish they have to publish because that’s the outcome so that’s how they are being measured now very important is how many times your article was cited that’s very important please look at google just you type if if you are a researcher you may know it sorry i am not talking to the those who are highly scholarly researchers here forgive me if i’m not addressing you because i’m addressing those who are trying to you know publish and trying to become a good researcher later stage okay those who are like purely in the teaching universities those who are in the teaching university probably we may not have the the luxury of doing conducting research with these latest technological advancements with the equipments so i’m just talking to you how you can even start writing an article and as you are you it can be cited by somebody so you can also track in the social media you know and also geographical even they tell us hey your article is cited by somebody in um yes they immediately inform you somebody cites your articles that’s a credit for you because your research is read by somebody they give you due credit that’s a very important and geographical distribution these metrics article level metrics tell us okay from malaysia uh from the your journal from india say from ngpit and university which university are you this under mgpit are you under bar there university or are you under anna university so we are from underneath okay university from you can say anna university you are from india uh we even though the state of tamil nadu then you will say that your article is cited in thailand somebody or you will say somebody has read in china your article this is very important for us to know of course some of the metrics they ask us to pay but it’s not mandatory for us to pay and to get this information because it’s not but it gives you a credit it gives you some kind of recognition and disciplinary distribution of citing the papers this is also important and impact outside this quarterly community even others so author metrics hnx i normally uh we know we give credit for our university or any university if you look at the world renowned university they measure by h index can anyone say what is h index if you have some idea maybe from the audience you know maybe i can just pause for a minute so we need to get some information from our audience so what do you understand by hnx anyone some 80 plus participants here anybody anybody wants to say you say your h index or say what is h index okay there’s no responsibility yeah please please go ahead yeah you know what i’m sharing thanks for just sharing because this is very important for us you know this for deepali mentioned she doesn’t know it’s okay for me it’s okay i also was not aware what is it i learned it what enchiladas say you are writing an article it’s cited somewhere by somebody in china or america or england or australia or new zealand so that you have your article has been you have five articles your five articles cited this is let’s say your h index is five how do they calculate five an author has a five publications each receiving five citations means uh you have five articles deepavali has five articles assuming uh by the way what is your discipline are you from engineering or other background tourism side sorry tourism studies tourism so in case let’s say you are writing about an article about tourism i i believe tourism you can write a lot of articles about indian culture rich culture about anywhere else start from you know top to bottom you can go to kanyakumari or kashmir or east west if you are writing an article about tourism let’s say you have five articles each article is cited by five people in different countries or different anywhere even india you get h index of fine that’s important so h index is very important those who are writing an article your article is cited how many times if it is let’s say one article you have only one article cited 100 times your h index is only one remember you have one article but cited hundred times no use because only h index one but you have hundred articles cited only one article cited still you have a h index one so your articles have to be read by somebody somebody somewhere have to cite your article in their journal they have to give a credit to you that’s your credit so that’s called h index you know so this is very important for us okay that’s also called g index and minus but we use um uh h index so h index is quite common that we are not using the other indices so web of science as i said web of science is giving you the highly you know the the called index index h index or sometimes google even go to google or scopus no i even publish or perish there is a website you can check all these things for recognizing your publications this is very important so that’s why the value of the index may vary depending on the source of information number of index publications sometime you publish it is not visible to others it is not in in index the journal then you can’t get agents that’s why i say you try to publish in web of science or scopus index journals or any well-known journals so that your article will be getting h index okay that is very very important so getting an index is very important so h index so web of science is one even google scholar google scholar is not the one for example this is web of science so my use my surname i i don’t see anybody there’s a problem with our names say let’s say we get the pali if there is a person maybe there are 10 000 people under the same name then you type in you will find a citation report let’s say my name surname is if you type johnson there will be a probably uh a billion or even even sorry a million people under the same name or even five million people 50 lakhs people under the same name maybe in in america or in australia in england this that sometimes the common name but you this is my surname family name look at this surname you type in i’m using surname i don’t see anybody in the world this is name so exactly i get my publications i have 129 publications i will check all my publications then and uh you see this will give me citation citing article in um like how many times cited and what is the total sign cited how many articles cited so four thousand times cited and how without self-citation means i cited my articles probably 500 times but others cited my article 3470 times then average citation per items say they divide so we get 31 times means one article gets 31 citation and my h index is 38. so 18×38 is it’s not that easy to get it requires i i i mentioned before it requires sacrifice it requires dedication it requires empathetic approach it requires sympathetic approach it requires very very very hard work in the laboratory day and night so without that it’s not easy it’s written here only you know in a simple term but how much effort one person has to take it’s not easy okay so the you look at this uh google scholar is is all you can type my name you johnson along you can find in google scholar even see here so if you type my name i’m from university of malay just you type my name you can find h index in google it’s 50 5 0. but whereas i get h index only 38 in the case of web of science so this is how we measure say look at the cited by one of the articles probably my students article normally we put student’s name first my name is sakina so sometimes this is my articles maybe like this is my student so this article for this article gets 254 citation because this is published in a journal called energy and building quite highly high impact journal construction and building material q1 journal energy and building q1 general material design q1 journal construction building material it’s all q1 general so look at the citation the 254 people cited you know it was published in almost seven years or eight years back so this is how we measure the measure the index of this one citation but i don’t get 254 ih index h index will be if i have 38 articles here 38 or 50 here 50 articles cited 50 times then 50 researchers cite each of the articles that’s called h index okay so this one is almetrics you can also check in the in google search is easier so they also how many times something is downloaded they will give you the downloaded articles how many there are many this is one of the uh index indices i call it there are many other things you can check reading what is who is reading your work has it been covered by news outlets any anywhere supposing somebody writing a newspaper you know or who is commenting on the work you know is there anybody commenting how is it being shared from these metrics you can check which countries are looking at my work or say how your work was being somebody from uh venezuela or from brazil or from argentina i i work with somebody from brazil so i tell my professor or colleague or they say can you help me on this particular this because i couldn’t get this article or this information he he can help me so don’t make a border within yourselves don’t put a border if you put a border within yourself we confine ourselves to a well it’s like a frog in the well never ever keep yourselves within the boundary leave beyond just go outside the boundary that’s why i put the title research without border that’s my main focus research without border because see when i submitted a proposal years back almost one and a half year i had to have a regular interaction with my counterparts in from the united kingdom not one day not two days weekly monthly meetings regularly to put up the structure of the proposal for the funding from two governments you know it’s not one government it’s from the two governments government of malaysia and the government of uh united england united kingdom you see two governments involving and there are 60 or 100 over submissions how many people compete 60 to 100 people compete then they have to minimize or scrutinize go through different stages of the application processing then finally they say okay i have taken some 20 from that 20 we our our our project our proposal was taken up up five five only five from malaysia so imagine at a hundred or sixty then from hundred it goes to sixty then it goes 25 then it goes to five so how difficult to get one funding so please ensure your research is always your proposals or your research or this all meant for exemplification okay you have to show that you are capable of publishing you are capable of publishing don’t stop just doing in the laboratory you may come up with many excuses yes we do but excuses don’t take you anywhere excuses don’t give you any certificate excuses don’t give us h index all that takes for you to achieve uh high esteem in the community among the researchers is your hard work your networking network just work with the people around the world see we have people from different uh uh area today maybe from engineering from uh tourism from arts anyone all you need is say for example i love to work with our um this one participants just now i spoken to the indoor so maybe she’s good enough this uh tourism so maybe i’d like to have some kind of works and in the tourism means how i have some idea about certain things so how we can collaborate of course i’m not in tourism but i’m just giving you an idea so there are universities i have a university we have a university in malaysia that’s also involved in this kind of tourism or kind of you know very important tourism is the the biggest industry in egypt imagine four thousand five hundred four thousand five hundred years back i when i visited egypt i was just telling the people that hey look at you are earning money today but you see the sacrifices of your great great great great you know how many years four thousand five hundred years 2500 bc the pyramids were built so i told them see you are ripping the rewards today who you did not sow you did not water it you did not plant it but you are ripping the the rewards what your forefathers have done 4500 years back people from all over the world visit here they pay you they pay you for just visiting the place they don’t take anything they can’t take the pyramid from your place back to their hometown then bury make a burial ground for them no they just visit your place am i making sense of my my dear participants am i making sense yes sir yeah thank you only one person at least that’s good for me that is one person says yes okay so next is on the exemplification of sprouting research you know for example so we have um you know some of the uh i would call it as uh products see this we want to build we were given a an opportunity to build a house you know with a short period of time and we were coming you know there are some materials available in malaysia you know i’m talking not talking particularly in one research i’m just i’m giving an idea so this is the byproduct or waste material from the industry the cooking oil from oil industry it’s a cooking oil or cosmetic we are also using that some of the oil from the form industry for cosmetic or other purposes so we get this waste there are 400 factories in malaysia alone indonesia may be many more thailand nigeria ecuador india the andhra pradesh they have so many materials available this kind of based industry by products from there we actually we fabricated the brick that’s why core you don’t this is a sprouting research from this base material two we can get three items like you know this is like three kind of items one is we call it as powder we can use as a cement replacement another is a sand which can be used to replace the conventional sand this is the lightweight and another one is the coarse aggregate we can use as a you know replacement of conventional aggregate this is very light so these are the some of the things this is another aggregate we have used oil pump shell now this is another aggregate we have been using for you know even this we can use it last showcase people look at this oh it looks very nice you know we can use it some of these products we have used this for the construction even this one is heavy aggregate from the steel industry we have used this in the construction so these are the same even we build the house using uh without cement this is without cement you know these are the this you can see the payments these payments without any any uh cement this also without any cement you know so uh this uh payment this one plastic you see this plastic aggregates these are the plastic aggregates so this is some of the products even the uh we use the cement free we call cement freezer polymer housing we use this materials there is nowhere you see the cement so we have used this kind of materials and you see that this is a product from the from the so-called steel industry this is from coal operating power plant we call thermal power plant this is from quarry normal quarry rock quarry this is from home industry so we have obtained these materials and you see myself and my people researchers they help me to mix and develop the products so sprouting research but rampification that’s very important we need to produce of course there are some faults here there are some mistakes here yes that’s why we call ramification it is not without fault see when we are making a blocks from this this materials even this one is from form industry no we this material lightweight these two are lightweight okay lightweight materials we can free we can produce the blocks okay so these are the some of the products i call it is you know from these protein we built another house within the university malaya campus this one uh we have used some of the materials that we have shown what i’m trying to say this is a demonstration of our our work we did when we did this um construction it’s very small house because uh it’s a very cheap uh budget they told that you have to construct it within a very small budget so they were they gave us the car park area two months time of course nowadays they built 20 story building in two months but for us it’s a very research from basic fundamental and we have to produce the material we have to fabricate it we are not a multinational company we are just you know researchers for researchers to build a small house with using only a sustainable material it’s not that easy you know when we talk about people building multi-story building in two months or one week that’s different that’s all free fabricated for us to build a small house it requires a lot of efforts so we have to build on copper so this is what we did it we have a house and we have seen we have we have visitors from france this is our one of our collaborators from france they’re from france they are french you know there are people from easy he’s from his format’s minister and he officiated the house in uh almost seven six years back for seven years six years probably so we you know how much effort we require my ra research assistant is helping me research assistance helping me they did the survey for because this is the bus driver they gave us some they gave us a so-called challenge say these bus drivers are sitting in the cabin this cabin there were few cabins here so we removed the cabins and they told us oh you are using cement free cement free corn concrete without cement you are doing okay why don’t you build a house for these bus drivers bus drivers are sitting in the bus when they are you know just putting the air condition on 30 buses here on university buses they just sit down because they can’t they don’t have a place to sit so they gave us a challenge so we did some kind of works here and constructed all these cement free not cement here we did we just used except for the foundation you know others all cement free so we have at the stages we are our need and our wise chancellors or here just when we are constructing they visited us and we explained how even the concrete is cement free concrete for the columns and beach all these columns we had visitors from gujarat students visited us australian people visited many visitors come from different parts of the world china and you know nigeria or even from algeria morocco people come and visit us so these are the some of the works that we have done and finally we constructed just i’m showing this thing during the inauguration of the house so just saying this also we contact this is exemplification now i’m coming to the exemplification means we need to you know bring it to the audience public so this is very important see our funder from france from france it’s called vinci construction they helped us in this kind of uh you know construction you know they are also perfect provider so we managed to get all these things process readiness even uh we did seven eight years back we did uh you know blast resistant concrete with a light blast test you know see conventional concrete cannot withstand but our concrete lightweight concrete it withstood the 10 kg tnt after the blast test this is the beef after the blast test normal weight concrete shattered you know this one is still intact even though there were cracks but it was not shattered like this so it gave us you know this is called from the sprouting research to ramification and exemplification this is very important for us so how in other senses you know apart from this okay so now i may stop for a while and sorry that i don’t finish it and i have not finished it so probably you may think that i’m finished i finished so you might be happy no i have not finished it sorry for that because the bad news i am not finished yet it’s what’s time for you there so we have time up to 12 30 sir okay what’s your time now 11 30 only yes sir how many minutes more so you know one hour sir so i can go slowly is it oh yes sir sir so am i am i clear because i want to ask something from you people now because i don’t want just mono just one person is speaking nothing from your side so i want to know from your side please be free to talk to me because i am one of you treat me as i’m one of you don’t treat oh this researcher is the year in malaysia no we also have two legs and two hands up so everybody you know i when i think of my uh you know i was in ph.d college of technology when i did my my professor told me professor you know uh jayakopal and respectful doctor professor jay koppal he told me john said hey come here this is your work this is the research you know i was doing my masters you know and he told this though i didn’t know anything but i know professor jayakov is a you know jackpot sergeant of jaipur jaipur is very now he’s retired of course he has his own consultants in coimbatore and you might have heard of him and he’s very very well known very he is always smiling guy smiling professor we call him smiling professor he smiles all the time so one of the reasons people living long life is smiling so he used to smile a lot and he told hey this is your going to be your research work for your this right that’s all you know he just gave me the so-called you know the interest research interest later on i will explain on that because i want to tell some stories i tell stories to my people of course you are all researchers i can’t tell more stories to you okay give me some input what you you learned from my half an hour or also 40 minutes or so can you please give some feedback from your side you can speak please i have some more thing to go later anybody can just give some kind of your input for anything that you learn or you understood or you have any doubts anything please should i speak soon yeah please anyone nepali yes thank you very much sure you have uh like informatives regarding the general quality and how a journal and a researcher can increase their impact and the edge index as well and what are the grading of the journal that you want to view for that and the quality general would have and sort of indicators then there’s uh for scientific journal there’s a web of science which is we don’t have that we have scoopers yeah i think you have covered some of this points very well uh deepali i think i really appreciate so what is your take from here you would like to take something for your future work or are you uh working or you are in university what is your this one or how is it sir i am currently working as a australian tourism management uh itdc new delhi okay great what i have understood from here is that there is a difference in the quality of journals and the quality of researcher which is based on their citations and index of the journals and the quality of the journal that is what i have as long as you got something it’s fine thank you deepali i think there is uh someone uh anybody other than uh so please go ahead others anybody anyone wants to raise the question or give any comments before i move on to the next one please go ahead you have time say out of the 90 i have only one person is participating even i have seen 100 including me good morning sir yeah good morning sir good morning industry or computer industry or automobile industry whatever research has done it is soon implemented whether we can see in mobiles or electronic products or in automobiles but in civil engineering we are very far even we can reach to moon or we have everything but if we walk in a city even in a university also we see concrete is mixed on the road roadside they block the road or half of the road they encroach and mix the concrete for casting the columns so i don’t think whatever we do the research will be implemented even in the coming 100 years in our country yeah yeah i understand there are some of the advancements have to be you know implemented actually it takes a lot of effort but however dr rajid rario from i call it as um exemplify means we can put our research into practice to showcase in the beginning for instance it’s very difficult as you said electronics or mechanical or electromagnetic or chemical or automobiles or any aeronautics they all can take off very fast because they have that but civil engineering i say it’s quite tough because they have been in this industry for years and they have their raw materials readily available and they have been traditionally following it so it’s quite hard i do agree with you even when we uh you know constructed the houses and we produce the products it’s very difficult to penetrate the market i agree so it requires somewhere some kind of revamping thinking rethinking because instead i was talking to a developer in india she said yes sir we are using this kind of blocks solid blocks 20 kg a block and we are lifting to few floors up and we need a crane or this kind of so we need a lot of man manpower as well equipment so why don’t we use uh lightweight i said yes why don’t you use lightweight because that will reduce the dead load as well as other aspects so we need a kind of technology and you know look at the other countries they are straight away implementing australia they have started they have started implementing polymer concrete for railway sleepers for some of the uh so called precast elements yes it is there there are certain countries they have taken initiative to do away with the cement it’s not possible to get away from cement or you mentioned on the the you know that that’s a culture that has to be changed like for example mixing on the roadside and disturbing the traffic and all this all our we need to change the kind of culture in the in our side that’s i agree dr rajendra you are right however for me and just give some idea on the research how we can exemplify and from this protein research to ramification we need to lose our part that’s what i’m saying as you say i fully agree with you i sympathize and empathize with you yes it’s true nature sometimes we are we don’t have a control yeah thank you how anybody i have one more question i can take up one more person or this type before i move on to the next one the new one hello sir yeah please yeah okay yes so i am very new in in this research field but i must say after listening to you sir i felt very much motivated and the examples that you gave from your domain area which i myself was not aware of that has uh instilled a kind of a motivation and uh we can look into these diverse areas as well i come from the computer science background but uh looking at the way you have done in the way you have progressed sir that has instilled kind of uh this and me that we can really do well thank you sir so much thank you are you a lecturer professor or is it yes i’m a professor in computer science in goa yeah i i see from your name dr tracey professor tracy thank you for your your input really i am blessed by your your say you said this hundred percent of professor tracy so blessed to even i thought i’m just speaking going to speak to the civil engineers likely i just prepared some things that i that is going to be you know important for others thank you for giving that point to professor tracy uh thing is we are forced today you i can’t work only in civil engineering today i’m going to the computer science people i’m going to electrical people i’m going to mechanical engineers i’m going to chemical engineers i’m going to biologists biological science people i’m working with why you may ask see i don’t know the database for instance uh dr prof tracy you what we need you why we need you how we can work together in for example the researchers from india i say how many how many you know data they are not having a base database where see for example europe go to europe check with the european countries they know how many incinerators they have how many tons of garbage is collected every day how many they incinerate how many times they collect and they use it as you know as a fertilizer or other materials they have database for us in asia do we have a database no not at all say for example we have many industrial byproducts from steel industry from automobile industry from computer industries the computer industry they told us a lot of handphones cell phones what are computers all companies they’re all being dumped so they told us why can’t we use it as some kind of material for you know some products people started doing that so a lot of inter we call it denominational research is coming out so you can’t go with your own research we you need to help us yeah so thanks uh prof uh tracy for your input so when i see you people from different industry or different arena area working here really okay somebody asked raise their hands please anyone anymore before i move on to the next one okay if no because i have another uh probably 45 minutes so i will just move on because i want to know what is your feedback because now i will tell you know those who are from apart from civil engineering we are you know there to contribute right right and right don’t stop just write an article about you know something and try to make it known your caliber i’m not talking about writing skill but rather the data that you need to bring to the world what data you may say there are so many things people don’t know they don’t have a database for example in i tell take southeast asian nation all the 10 or 11 nations southeast asia or you say our asian all the fine nations there or you take this asian continent our african continent so many data not if not we don’t have the database there is no database people want to find out certain things we don’t have database but you look at the apple of this handphone or your cell phone or your pc computer or laptop whether you have database how many sold in china or india they have a database but look at the automobile or other they may have database but our civil engineering we don’t know the database many how many tons are produced in this category how many how many tons of wastage collected from the state of guava from the uh you know from all the household and how many tons are incinerated where do they dump it do they dump it in the open field or do they dump it somewhere or something we don’t have database so database is very important where we can work together we work with the biological science people why we want to heal the cracks in the bridges so they have some kind of ready-made or some kind of material so we take like even bacteria people work on bacteria or others we get that kind of uh research so there are a lot of things okay so the next let me go on if no questions uh thank you for all those who are have asked really i am so heartened to hear your your comments and also the points okay let me go to the next point finally i am going to share on the how research can be written okay so research articles can be written some of the points might be useful for others as well so just bear with me as i share these slides sorry this one is the source research to the we call it as ramification so okay one minute okay uh we will i’m sharing this for example some of the awards that our researchers myself and our researchers one eighteen so we have one international technology exposition award world in 2019 there is another this is um the local malaysia malaysian language at the sita that we also produced and we you know participated we got gold award when the uh this one malaysian technological exposition 20 and 21 we won silver and special award from japan you see some of the awards we received why i’m saying that not to you know magnify myself it’s not here i’m not here to you know glorify myself just to say that we need to showcase our products somewhere and somewhere so these are some of the awards even malaysia croatia technology change and um is for the low cost house we also got gold medal and this one award we got some of the international technological exposition and materials i already told you so let me go through research to ramification through journal writing this is my final part so you can smile then i’m going to finish but it will take time so general writing is a very important art because you look at you see when i was you know studying in my own medium of instruction so when i went to university i was you know had i had a inferiority complex because when i look at the people my colleagues this university students we call college students told from highly you know from our english medium i probably i and some of the people had a kind of inferiority complex because we can’t speak english properly and even writing it’s quite hard thank god i had a friend from a person from shimla all the way from shimla sanjay kumarathri he was you know he was staying in my hostel he’s because in his shimla at those days they didn’t have an engineering college so they they the states they send the students to tamil nadu so i came i got the students uh my friend sanjay kumar atri from shimla all the way to this tamil nadu we were whenever i you know i wanted to improve my english so what did i do whenever we go to university college i just go to his room hey sanjay can we go because i only know two sentences few sentences in english you know can we go to uh this college that’s all can we go come only these few sentences i know because i know i’m from uh you know i’m not from a well educated english so-called even i studied in the convent but not in english but so later on i found out it’s it’s art english is not my language it’s somebody’s language it’s from you know england it’s not my first language but no way i can escape from this language without english i cannot work in this country i was working in middle east before i needed english so writing is a skill you have to master it you like or not see no what i did was those days no televisions you know so only radio i used to listen to radios cricket commentary also used to listen in australian commentaries very nice english or bbc i used to listen hours listening i didn’t know that i’m improving without knowing because i was so thirsty to learn what’s going on around the world so i used to listen to radio bbc then i started reading newspaper almost regular basis almost every time i used to read the newspaper so this is where i improved talking to sanjay hey sanjay let’s go to i all the 20 minutes or 25 minutes of walk because we have to walk all the way 20 20 minutes from the hostel to the university college walk walk walk lunch time come back hey because we are classmates fortunately thank god it was i called divine blessing so i had to walk back to the to the college hostel then go back after lunch go back almost four and a half plus years you see we were friends today is one of the top engineers in himachal pradesh so what i’m trying to say here have means if you have a desire nobody is going to stop you that’s why i’m saying we should have that attitude too so writing journal is to be is very important the most common method scholarly communication without writing proper writings and even i write today after many many years of experience they say your no no you need to send to the native speaker who can speak english properly you know because english is not my language so i can write i may have some grammar mistake type of error no problem why because there are people to edit help us in editing no problem sometimes i don’t send to editor because i myself do it so it’s it’s very important that journals we need to publish it so publishing 2.5 million articles people publish so you can be among you know it’s 2.5 million is it so growth this is very important the journals are increasing every year so preparing to write remember that you are writing to communicate not impress don’t impress but you are writing this that’s why engineers we draw we don’t speak say for example you’re building a construction you don’t speak to the uh the mason or you speak to the site engineer hey i want 10 meter wall or 5 meter thickness or one arm on thickness or we don’t talk we just communicate through drawing drawing is a communication tool same thing writing is a communication tool not to impress but to communicate well realize the journal editors and peer reviewers reading your work what you want you to do well anybody say i am a teacher i was one of the editors editors in the journal i’m also a reviewer i just reviewed the yesterday of the first day one journal i gave 20 comments why i don’t want to put the person down please note it’s not my intention to put the person down no i want to say hey you have done well but improve on this show the evidence we have to show the evidence without that how do you write a journal so writing a general that’s why i say sprouting research to ramification ramification has ramification has a lot of mistakes maybe because we are not perfect only one is perfect we all imperfect don’t worry i learn from my mistakes so purpose of their constructive criticism i give the criticism if you call a constructive criticism is to help you to succeed that’s why don’t worry about any problems or issue we may be down when the journal is article your article is rejected no worry you submit it select a journal for publication this is very important i don’t have time otherwise i go through how you can select a particular journal for your publication use published items a model always read i tell my students hundred times thousand times i don’t know always tell they read read read right right right don’t stop always read if you don’t read you don’t get many phrases many understanding or the the meaning of the phrases you need to read and read and read journal instruction also when you want to write a particular journal say you are indian a concrete journal say i mean from civil engineering say there is a general indian conflict or structural engineering journal or uh construction and building medical web of science or seminar company research or international or computer science and engineering you have a international journal of computer computers anything so if you are writing a journal article always go to the instruction they have given you what to do and topic is very important to identify a topic okay the i will try to go fast because i have some slides it might be i may stop at the time because i know the time is now because malaysia is 3 0 two thirty going to be so three o’clock here means your time twelve thirty twelve that means a three so i’ll try to stop in case you need uh continuation please leave me otherwise i will stop at that three o’clock here time your time uh don’t drink three o’clock means you you know your time is malaysian time you are two and a half hours so please stop me when you want to stop at 12 30
