Workshop on Scientific Writing and Journal Submission

One of the main aims of CCR-NCSTT in SHERA program is to disseminate our research results to the academic community and the public. To achieve that, CCR-NCSTT needs to write research result in an academic paper and submit it to a reputable journal to be published. However, the process of writing and submitting a journal is quite challenging, especially for a reputable journal. A reputable journal demands the author to submit a good academic paper, in terms of content as well as writing style or data presentation. Otherwise, the submitted academic paper will be rejected. A set of scientific writing skill is required for CCR-NCSTT researchers to pass the review process and get their publication published. Therefore, CCR-NCSTT recognizes the importance of holding a workshop on scientific writing and journal submission to improve our researchers’ capacity.
This workshop is intended to guide the participants through the whole writing and submission process for International Journal for Sustainable Transportation Technology (IJSTT). This journal accepts original research paper, review paper, technical paper, and short communication paper which covers transportation technology fields such as electric vehicle technology, mass transportation, railways and rolling stock, transport socio-economic impacts, transportation infrastructures, transit-oriented development, and transportation safety. The submitted paper will be reviewed by experts in each field with double-blind review process to assure the high standard journal quality. All published papers will be available to be accessed openly to reach a broad and wide audience. Furthermore, the author does not required to pay publication fees since it has been covered by NCSTT under USAID-SHERA program.
