ICT4D Journal Ranking Table

ICTs for Development

In earlier blog postings on the best type of publication outlet for ICT4D research and on ICT4D research quality and impact, I surmised that there is value in publishing ICT4D research in specialist ICT4D journals.  But I skirted round the issue of which ICT4D journal to publish in.  Here, then, is an ICT4D journal “league table”:

NERAKA JAHANNAM; Tempat Paling Mengerikan

Reminder

AMAM

Penulis Lukman Hakim Zuhdi

“Sesungguhnya Kami jadikan untuk (isi Neraka Jahannam) kebanyakan dari jin dan manusia. Mereka mempunyai hati, tetapi tidak dipergunakannya untuk memahami (ayat-ayat Allah SWT). Mereka mempunyai mata (tetapi) tidak dipergunakannya untuk melihat (tanda-tanda kekuasaan Allah SWT). Mereka mempunyai telinga (tetapi) tidak dipergunakannya untuk mendengar (ayat-ayat Allah SWT). Mereka itu sebagai binatang ternak, bahkan mereka lebih sesat lagi. Mereka itulah orang-orang yang lalai.”
(QS. Al-A’raaf: 179)

Neraka Jahannam adalah tempat paling dahsyat dan mengerikan yang diciptakan secara khusus oleh Allah SWT. Neraka Jahannam laksana penjara super raksasa bagi orang-orang yang menganggap remeh berita tentang pengadilan akhirat. Di alam akhirat, tempat itu kelak disediakan bagi manusia yang durhaka kepada syariat Allah SWT, mengingkari Rasulullah SAW, senang bermaksiat, gemar melakukan dosa, dan orang yang bersikap sombong. Mereka mengakui bahwa ketika di dunia tidak mau mendengar dan tidak berpikir. Padahal, pendengaran dan berpikir ialah landasan ilmu, dan dengan keduanya ilmu bisa…

Thank you for providing the list of this resource anyway, Mr. Muklason.

What is your research interest?

After long time, I don’t write an articles on my blog, finally I came back. When somebody asked you regarding your research interest? What you should answered?

Honestly, I am still confuse with my research interest because it always shifts every time. I like to read Computer Sciences – computational intelligent (CI) material, because of so challenging.

However, I don’t have enough capability to understand new mathematics formula when I read some CI papers. In addition, I have forgotten all my math knowledge, on the top of that the basic of math. Well, it is to main problem when I wanna to choose this topic. If I am still on this research topic, I don’t need to go to gathering the data as like person who takes information system as their interest.

Different with Information System research interest, may be the proportion of the math in this interest is not complex like Computer science. I just need learn statistics and the supporting tools (AMOS or SPSS). However, because IS will interact to human, so that I must learn more about human behavior and gather data through questionnaire, interview, and so forth. In fact, to conduct this is extremely as the “bad” part of taking IS.

So what is your choice? Maybe Information System, because when I were in CS, I have failed to hold and encourage my self to do CS research. Finally, every single selected option will have different challenges, so that I must be brave to face it.

It is my way, not story of others. I must be a resilience person!
