  • An Example of Review Parameters: IC3 2014 Originality - Are you reasonably confident about the originality of this paper? You are requested to check the EDAS reported similarity score and also the detailed similarity report. If the similarity score is more than 20, you are requested to be extra careful in making your assessment about originality Contributions - What are the major issues addressed in the paper? Do you consider them important? Comment on the novelty, creativity, impact, and technical depth in the paper Literature Survey (Comment on the importance, recency, and quality of referred sources) Problem, Research Method, Argument and Claim - Comment on the clarity, relevance, and consistence of the problem, research method, arguments, and claim(s) Assumptions and Validation - Comment on assumptions and validation in terms of a. Clarity, relevance, and validity of the background and contextual assumptions; b. Consideration of important parameters in selecting the criteria for assessment of results; c. Reasonable complexity of testing/operational conditions including data size and variety for empirical validation Scalability/Generality of proposed solution - Is the proposed approach reasonably scalable/ generic? Strengths -What are the major reasons, if any, to accept the paper? Weaknesses -What are the major reasons. if any, NOT to accept the paper? Sanjay Goel, JIIT, 2014
  • Typical Reasons of Rejection 1. Not relevant to the scope of journal/conference 2. Does not make new contribution to the knowledge or its application/too local, too small 3. Lack focus, Overcrowded with ideas 4. Objective not clear, Need for research not established, Poor problem statement 5. Introduction, data, literature survey do not support conclusions 6. Insufficient/irrelevant/outdated literature survey 7. Poorly conducted study, inadequate research, methodological problems, research steps missing 8. Wrong assumptions, over generalization 9. Incomprehensible, lack of clarity, Inconsistency, Confusing usage of technical jargon, Structural deficiencies, Jerks in the flow, boring, exceeds size limits, poor language, poor/confusing presentation of data, Author guidelines not followed 10. Poor sampling/testing/statistics/interpretation/analysis, invalid and illogical arguments 11. Suspected reproducibility of experiments/calculations, wrong maths 12. Unsubstantiated claims, Future projections without a how 13. Redundancy 14. Poor response to reviewers comments 15. Unethical practices Sanjay Goel, JIIT, 2014
  • Research = Inquiry The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. Einstein The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he's one who asks the right questions Claude Lvi-Strauss (anthropologist) The outcome of any serious research can only be to make two questions grow where only one grew before. Thorstein Veblen (economist) Kalama Sutta, The Buddha's Charter of Free Inquiry It is proper for you, to doubt, to be uncertain Do not go upon what has been acquired by repeated hearing; tradition; rumor; what is in a scripture; surmise; axiom; specious reasoning; bias towards a notion that has been pondered over; another's seeming ability; consideration, 'The monk is our teacher.' Sanjay Goel, JIIT, 2014
  • Critical Thinkers Dispositions and Habits Recognize and Avoid Simplistic worldview (Kurland 2000) See things in black and white, as either-or See questions as yes or no with no subtleties. Fail to see linkages, related elements, and complexities Egotistical worldview (Kurland 2000) Take their facts as the only relevant ones. Take their own perspective as the only sensible one. Take their goal as the only valid one. Socio-centric worldview Consider their own social group as superior to that of others. Inquisitiveness, Intellectual Humility & Autonomy Faith in Reason, Self Confidence and Intellectual Perseverance Intellectual Courage, Self Reflection & Correction Analyticity and patience in reasoning, inference, judgment, and synthesis Discipline, Systematicity and Intellectual Integrity Intellectual Empathy, Open-mindedness, and Fair-mindedness Maturity Sanjay Goel, JIIT, 2014
  • Engineering Innovation: Context and Benchmarking Engineering R&D will possibly reach $45 billion by 2020. India has the potential to capture a 40% share of global offshore revenues of engineering R&D services. - NASSCOM, 2010 Sanjay Goel, JIIT, 2014
  • Evolving Role and Concerns of Engineering Engineering serves the human needs at all levels of human needs Maslows model : physiological, safety, belonging, esteem, cognition, aesthetic, self actualization, and also transcendence. through transfer, transformation, and application of Matter, Energy, and Information Engineering: Conventional concerns utility, efficiency, robustness, safety, ergonomy, legal Modern concern- user experience, sustainability, globalization Innovation Is Most Important Factor For Growth Sanjay Goel, JIIT, 2014
