2021 Day 189 Task – Checked Energy Conversion & Management Paper Draft

My main task today was purely to check my student’s ECM paper draft which has been pending for 2 weeks. I found it tough to check the paper before this because I need to revamp the Introduction part a lot and that alone has pretty much delayed me. However, the end of today I am very pleased that I managed to stay focused and check the paper up to 90% of the content. I will complete the remaining 10% tomorrow and return the draft back to my student.

Important point: I am very impressed with my student’s work. After all she managed to prepare this 50 page manuscript in 3 months as a PSM student. Remarkable!

Day 250 Task – Perfecting Abstract and Graphical Abstract for My Review Paper

It was not a good Saturday start as I pampered myself lazily. But I know I really needed a piece of break from my hectic career life and super weirdo interest. I tried to use the late morning to perfect my abstract and graphical abstract for my review paper. This paper was prepared by my master student and it is really a very long paper.  It also took me a while to check and finalize this. I will be continuing this work and feel positive to submit this manuscript within this week. InsyaAllah.

Day 150 Task – Checking My Master Student’s Review Paper Manuscript

This project has been pending for quite some time and I am not proud of being very late. The task is quite overwhelming because it is quite a  long manuscript and the amount of interruption i always get from numerous other tasks, keeps me to put this into a delayed but important priority, and I am personally not happy with the way i treat this project. I must get it done once and for all. InsyaAllah, this week, it will be submitted, that’s a challenge to myself.

Day 17 Task – Manuscript Submission to Energy Conversion and Management Journal

Today, a Friday, a beautiful public holiday. It is tough to do work. I feel just like resting and relaxing. But I have already relaxed several hours yesterday night (Thursday night) and I have also relaxed for the passed 4 hours on this Friday morning. It is time to start working on something that has been long pending. I am starting to submit this long overdue paper today. Hopefully by tomorrow it can be submitted.

My new publication – Energy Conversion and Management Journal (ECM)

I am extremely delighted to share that my writing has been finally published in Energy Conversion and Management Journal (ECM), a journal under Elsevier. It was such a hard work getting the manuscript written, prepared, published and corrected until the final end. To add to the joy, this is a Quartile 1 quality journal which means it is of high impact. I’m preparing myself to write more and published in more higher impact journal.

Following is the detail of my journal:

Optimization of catalytic glycerol steam reforming to light olefins using Cu/ZSM-5 catalyst, Energy Conversion and Management, Volume 86, October 2014, Pages 735–744.
