WTF: Example of filtering result from Scopus

Dear friends,

Before we start to write or conduct a research, in this case PhD research, one should write a literature review.

Before we do the actual writing, first we search for any previous researches or papers. To do this we must choose the database that we are going to use. You can use Google Scholar or in this case we use Scopus. The main tools for us is keyword filtering.

In this case we use:

  • tools: filter
  • field: title and abstract
  • results: number of publication

This pic shows results of keyword or string filtering in Scopus (as off 23 Oct 2014). I will elaborate more on this.

About the author

My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behavior, especially its interaction with surface water. I use open source apps like R and Python to do the job. In my spare time, I also have a side project to promote open science in Indonesia's research workflow. One of my current focus is promoting INARxiv, as the first preprint server of Indonesia ( and serving as ORCID and OSF ( ambassador. Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming. Blog:, (
