  • Having interest in doing high-quality research.

Are you looking for the most unique and worthwhile title for your research project to impress your supervisor or professor? Do you want to find and use only related and reliable sources thus avoid wasting your time? This package, which is the second in our series of research tools courses, is essential for all researchers, especially those at the beginning of their quest. Its purpose is fourfold: finding the most relevant and trending keywords; coming up with a unique and optimized title; finding, appraising and selecting the most relevant and authentic sources; and using online alert systems to keep yourself, as a researcher, up-to-date with the academic world. We have put these four concepts together because their effectiveness and the real value of the tools we have provided for each one manifests itself only when they are combined and used together systematically as they are integrally related to each other.

There are various tools developed by well-known institutes throughout the academic world to help improve the quality of research. These sets of tools are developed with great effort by elites in order to aid in researchers and using them in systematic ways leads to a valuable and high quality research project.

Utilizing the instructions and tools introduced in this package gives you an awareness of how research is done in different fields. You will be able to use these tools systematically to find keywords. Then you will learn how to use these keywords to search in the literature and find certain gaps or unanswered questions. These gaps will then lead you to a research topic/project which will fill those gaps. Finally, Combining all the new ideas and keywords you have generated, you will be able to come up with a unique and valuable title for your paper.

720 Tools+ For Academic Research

TCFEX Corporation was initially formed in May 2013 and lunched in US in March 2014. Various tools have been developed by well-known institutes throughout the academic world to help improve the quality of research.

TCFEX has collected these scattered tools under supervision of Dr. Nader Aleebrahim in a collection named the “Research Tools Box”. Aleebrahim, PhD in Technology Management, has more than 17 years’ experience in establishing R&D department in different companies, project director and coordinator and implementing Knowledge-based systems in R&D departments. He has published more than 150 papers so far.

Research Tools box contains over +720 tools and it is still growing. These tools are classified into 4 main categories: Literature-Review, Writing a Paper, Targeting Suitable Journals, and Enhancing Visibility and Impact Factor.

“Research Tools Learning packages” are a series of online courses which can considerably benefit supervisors, students and researchers.

These courses will demonstrate how to push deeper in a study and produce a high-quality thesis or article. After completion of thesis or article, researchers can use the research tools and methods shown in the courses as a guide in publishing results in the best and most suitable academic journals. Even at this point, research tools will help enhance and increase the impact of research by bringing in more citations and comments from other researchers. This series of courses has been developed to help junior and senior researchers alike cut to the chase and put their time into what is most important in their research. TCFEX has held more than 200 workshops for Masters and PhD students and professors.
