Day 249 Task – Reviewed Another BCREC Journal Manuscript

Today, I squeezed my weekend wonderful time to complete another review assigned to me the day before from Prof Dr. Istadi from BCREC journal. Luckily the paper was interesting and really falls within my expertise. The real bonus was that the paper was not that long, it was short and sweet and I managed to provide a review of my comments and decision swiftly.

I realized that the future will see me reviewing more and more manuscripts. At the same time, I am already an editor for AJEE journal. Hence, I need to develop the skill to read and capture the content of a journal fast. InsyaAllah I will do my best for that.

Day 39 Task – Reviewing Manuscript for BCREC Journal

I spent some time to review a manuscript assigned to me by editor from Bulletin of Chemical Reaction and Catalysis (BCREC). The review was my 15th review since I started reviewing manuscript under BCREC few years ago. It is a very interesting and amazing experience since I can read other researcher’s idea in research, especially in the same research niche as myself.

One day, perhaps somewhere this year, I intend to submit a paper in this journal myself. InsyaAllah. And one day, I hope I can be an editor for this journal.
