Summing Up

It was a great course. For a long time, I could not understand what exactly was wrong in my publications - they were weak and unclear. But these lessons gave me a lot of lifehacks and allowed me to look at the situation from the side of much more experienced authors - and this is really great! Thank you very much!

This course gave me basic idea of conducting SLR. In increased my confidence in the utilization of the SLR. This course will be a great facilitation for my Doctoral Thesis. Thanks to dr. Shakil Ahmad Sb for giving me the chance to be benefited from this course. I took two courses delivered by Dr. Shakil Ahmad, one is SLR and the other is Publishing in High Ranked Journals. These both will be a great nudge toward my research career. Dr. Shakil Ahmad has an excellent master of the courses he delivers.

It's good for beginners. However, I want more present day information. Some links are not working, you should update your course contents. I also wanted to know more about the journal research and selection using Elsevier tools. None of that was spoken.
