Effect of Node Movement on DSDV, AODV and DSR

Effect of Node Movement on DSDV, AODV and DSR: A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a self-configuring network of mobile nodes connected by wireless links to form an arbitrary topology without the use of existing infrastructure. Each node participating in the network acts both as host and a router and must therefore is willing to forward packets for other nodes. Research in this area is mostly simulation based; Random waypoint is the commonly used mobility model in these simulations. In this paper we have compared the performance of DSDV, AODV and DSR for different node speeds. Experiment results illustrate that performance of the routing protocol varies across mobility and node density.

I10-Index – A New Metric to Measure Citable Content

Some researchers in the infancy stage of their careers seldom bother about impact factors, citable content and metrics such as i-index or h-index. All they need is some clarity on how the subject is going to impact their scope of work. Indexing the citations is no longer a prerogative of the statisticians because it is actually the authors and researchers who are responsible for producing citable manuscripts. Prolific writers do not need a mention as to what they need to do in order to produce citable literature. They understand the parameters that govern high quality content. The race for citation indices is now interesting. Apart from h-index by Hirsch, the g-index by Leo Egghe, we have the latest arrival………. CLICK HERE TO READ FULL ARTICLE

H-index – A Neat Calculation of Scholarly Work

What is the genesis of any scientific research? No prize for guessing as very few would contradict the purpose of any invention is always focused towards the betterment of human civilization. Developing a manuscript which could lead to the prototype for a new, innovative product is a consequence of thorough research and development.
How to evaluate the worth of a scientific research that could potentially lead to ground breaking discovery in the chosen field? The journal impact factor is the conventional approach of ranking journals in a sequential order of significance. However, this method has received a lot of criticism.
 What is H-index?
In 2005, Jorge E. Hirsch, a Professor of physics......

What is Impact Factor - A Brief Discussion

What is Impact Factor?
How would you segregate an average article from a whole bunch of informative pieces that appear relevant in every sense of word in a journal? Check the number of counts that goes in favour of the article. This implies the number of times the article has been repeatedly cited in Journal Citation Reports (JCR). In the 1920’s, science librarians used to count raw citations with the purpose of saving money and shelf-space. Of course, the aim was to determine which journals made the best bet in their respective fields. However, this approach only met with modest success.  When Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information formulated the impact factor, the intention was absolutely clear – determine how ubiquitous the article is on the basis of citations it receives.

The Impact Factor – How does it work?

The impact factor is an objective measurement of a journal’s quality, expressed in terms of numerical figures which are easy to understand.  The impact factor is a parameter for highlighting the relative significance of a journal within its specific field.  It indicates the frequency with which an article appears in the JCR.
 The impact factor acts a measuring medium for the number of citations received by articles in a particular journal. If a published article is cited one time, it denotes an impact factor of 1.0. Similarly, if the article is cited two and half times, it implies an impact factor of 2.5. Journals with high impact factors are notable than those with low impact factors. Apart from listing impact factors, the JCR also does the job of listing and ranking the journals in reference to their defined fields.

Impact Factor – Why do we need it?

How can we evaluate journals without overlooking their volume and frequency with which they are published? A big journal often tends to outweigh the small journal in terms of citable content. Most of us would wonder as to what should be done to restore parity between big and small journals related to the same field.
 The Impact Factor comes into picture. It is an invaluable tool for evaluating journals. It offers a level playing ground for both big and small journals because it mitigates the scope for absolute citations which could have gone in favour of big journals. The impact factor also offsets the advantage that frequently published journals may have over less frequently issues ones or olden journals over the newly launched ones.
 The impact factor does not foster comparison across different fields because citations would vary in numbers. Citations received from the mathematicians are bound to be more than those received from the biologists. Journals with high impact factors are the first choice for many.  They are extensively endorsed by authors, researchers, readers, scholars and academic librarians. Publishing work in a leading journal with high impact factors can be a turning point in the career for budding scientists. Scholars and researchers can showcase their work in prominent journals to attract critical acclaim and recognition.

Impact Factor – How to Calculate?

For One year Impact Factor Calculation:

A = Total number of articles published in 2005 year = 212
B = Total number of citation achieved in 2006 year for the articles which was published in 2005 year = 200
Impact Factor = B / A = 200 / 212 = 0.943
For Five year Impact Factor Calculation:
 A = Total number of articles published in 2005-2010 year = 1132
B = Total number of citation achieved in 2011 year for the articles which was published between 2005-2010 year = 1452
Five Year Impact Factor = B / A = 1452 / 1132 = 1.282

A Survey of Positivity to 4-Aminoquinoline among Primary, Post Primary and Tertiary Institution Students in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria

A Survey of Positivity to 4-Aminoquinoline among Primary, Post Primary and Tertiary Institution Students in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria: A survey of urine positivity to 4-aminoquinoline was carried out to examine the current status of the chloroquine in the treatment of malaria in Southwestern, Nigeria. Out of 352 students examined 352(61%) were positive using Dill-Glazko test. High occurrence was more among the primary school pupils (68%), than secondary (62%), and tertiary (47%). More female student (61%) used chloroquine than male (55%). Pupils in the age group 6-10years (26%) had the highest occurrence followed by 11-15years (16%), 16-20years (8%), 21-25years (5%), 1-5years (3%) and 26-30years (1%) respectively. Although, newer antimalarial drugs such as Atesunate/Arthemeter, Halofantrin etc have been introduced lately, more people in Ado-Ekiti still prefer Chloroquine for the treatment of malaria. This result of the study suggests that chloroquine is still the first line of drug for the treatment of malaria in Ekiti state, Southwestern Nigeria.

Anthelmintic Screening of Crude Extracts of Hygrocybe Parvula

Anthelmintic Screening of Crude Extracts of Hygrocybe Parvula: The World Health Organization estimates that a staggering two billion people harbor parasitic worm infections. Parasitic worms also infect livestock and crops, affecting food production with a resultant economic impact. Despite this prevalence of parasitic infections, the research on anthelmintic drug is poor. As per WHO, only few drugs are frequently used in the treatment of helminthes in human beings. Anthelmintic from the natural sources may play a key role in the treatment of this parasitic infections.In the present investigation, anthelmintic screening of crude extracts of Hygrocybe parvula. The present study aimed at the in-vitro evaluation of anthelmintic activity of various solvent extracts of fruiting bodies of H. parvula using at three different concentrations (25, 50 and 100mg/ml) respectively. The study involved the determination of time of paralysis (P) and time of death (D) of the worms. In view of this petroleum ether, chloroform and methanol extracts of fruiting bodies of H. parvula were evaluated separately for the activity on adult Indian earthworms, Pheretima posthuma, using Piperazine citrate as reference standards. The results indicated that the petroleum ether extract was more potent than the chloroform and methanol solvent extract. All extracts showed effective anthelmintic activity at 100mg/ml concentration.

Tuesday, 2 September 2014 a fake website by Jeffery Beall

We are not wrong to say that Jeffrey Beall is publishing bluffing on his website. He has written our company  name on his website. We ask him that why you have written our company name on your website… he said if I though I do. We ask him to remove our name instead of that he has written a note on his website… he is just trying to create problems for upcoming journals… We had also sent one of the recent review report on his mail id and ask him that please give your guideline on what basis you write our company’s name but he do not have any genuine reason for the same.

A full mail communication can be given on<>

He doesn’t want us to start such service or he may be supported by other who do not want journals club in this service area.

We would like to update you that we are also not bound with this service only. We are also working to serve academic people for indexing, editing & plagiarism in the future.

Jeffery Beall does not have any documentation for writing any journal name on his website. He also don’t have guideline to remove journal name from his website.

We try a lot, but he just said if I thought fit I will write and last but not list A librarian cannot judge a journal until he has good documentation for that.

Some international  people only emphasis on English language to create the value for themselves, but what we believe is that peer review process is the only important technical aspects to publish a technical documents online.

---------------------------------------------- UPDATES ---------------------------------------------------------

It was always interesting how people are getting to gather to earn money may be by using direct method or maybe by using an indirect method like this. We got the following two mails saying that we will help you for proof reading services. Akim John also claims, says that I think, I will be able to contact Jeffrey Beall and request the removal of Journal Clubs & Co. From his list.

As a director of this company, I just want to say that non English speaking country like India are not handicap as far as English proofreading is a concern. We are in discussion with various recruiting agencies, and soon we will be hiring a person for the same job. We don’t like to feed international people who contact us in a wrong way like one person is posting a post on his website blog and another is coming for service help. If this such kind of silly method was not used, then we may think about to hire a service from international people or firm.

Our aim is to serve students, authors & editorial board members with best quality services. We as a technical people are much more concern about technical aspects of articles through a peer review process.

I think this website has been created to miss guide the researcher.
