Dr Mamun Habib offered insights into the types of international publications and suggested a road map of how to step-by-step get into the most prestigious journals of the world.

There are also opportunities to do a PhD under him at Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), a prestigious university set up to create managers for taking the country forward.

With your interest, you may first contact Prof Yousuf M Islam at ymislam@daffodilvarsity.edu.bd or you may also Dr Habib. His contact details from the first slide are given below:

Step 1:

Start presenting at conferences. Choose an international conference. The idea is to get whatever you have written reviewed by the Session Chair and by the audience. Take all comments and reviews as opportunities for learning and improvement. So listen to all comments, do not argue, read up more...find out what they mean...dig deeper into the subject....most important.....START PUBLISHING in international conferences....choose one that will give some review...

Slide 2 is given below:

•   Research Publications

•   Conference Paper: Call for Papers (CFP), ISBN (International Standard Book Number) isn’t mandatory for Conference Proceedings (CD/Book format), duration about 6 months.

   - Abstract/Initial paper submission through email/online

   - Reviewers will review the papers [At least 5 international   
           papers to be required to become Reviewer]

   - Technical Committee Member [Reviewers will be the members of Technical Committee]

   - Author would modify based on reviewer comments

   - Final Manuscript submission through online/email.

Step 2:

Start publishing in Journal Papers...start with journals that lower in ranking in the ISI...then move up...

The contents of Slide 3 are given below:

•   Research Publications

•   Journal Paper: Call for Papers (CFP), ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) is mandatory, ISSN (Online), ISSN (Print), duration about 8 months (depends on number of issues/year)
   - Initial paper submission through email/online

   - Reviewers will review papers

   - Editor-in-Chief/Editorial Board Member would take final decision [At least 10 international papers and 20 papers to become Editorial Board Member and Editor-in-Chief respectively]

   - Author would modify based on reviewer comments

   - Final Manuscript submission through online/email.

   [Especially, Editor-in-Chief will emphasis on Ethics in Research (Plagiarism)] - Turnitin Software

Journal reviews focus on plagiarism and ethics. They use a software to check how much "copy" has been done.....only 20% or less is acceptable and properly referenced. It is considered a criminal offence to copy from others without giving references...and also there is a limit to how much can be copied....if a model is used, permission must be taken and acknowledged.

The software used by Dr Mamun Habib is called Turn-it-in software....from Turn Him In...i.e. put him in jail...(I guess)

An image of a Turnitin report is attached below:

How to know the quality and ranking of a journal?

As we start publishing, we should choose better and better journals for publishing. In some universities of the world, to get a job, you need to have publications in the top 100 ISI journals.

Here are the criteria:

•   Research Publications

•   Journal Paper

   - Quality of Journals

   Editor-in-Chief (Renowned Researcher)
   Editorial Board Member (from Various continents and countries)
   Peer Reviewed (Mandatory)
   ISSN (Online and Print) [Print ISSN is difficult to achieve]
   Place of Publishing [Europe/USA]
-------------------------------------
   Quality of Previous Issues (review papers as well as authors)
   Indexing/catalogue
-------------------------------------
   ISI (Institute of Scientific Information) Index [Thomson Reuters]
   (SCI, SSCI, AHCI)
   Impact Factor

Step 3:

Publish a chapter in a book with an editor and review....use international publishers....

•   Research Publications

•   Editorial Book (Book Chapters): Editor/Chapters Author -  Nominated by Publishers, ISBN (International Standard Book Number) mandatory, Duration about 1 year (Depends on Publisher)

   - Editor would be selected among chapters’ author after submitting the chapters or Editor would be selected earlier by publisher before submitting the chapters.

   - Select the author for book chapter if he/she has more than 10 international papers

   - Select the editor if he/she has more than 20 International research papers
