Syayid Sandi Sukandi – List of Scholarly Works (2012 – onward)


As a registered English researcher and teaching staff in Indonesia – with NIDN: 1024098501 – I am administratively required by KEMENRISTEKDIKTI (Kementerian Riset, Teknologi, dan Pendidikan Tinggi) to publish my scholarly writings, which are in the form of research articles or papers, to accredited journals, conferences, seminars, symposium, or scientific panels either in Indonesia or overseas.

Therefore, in this post, I share titles of scholarly writings that I had published in journals, proceeding, or compilation book. The purpose of this post is to inform readers, wherever they are, about my academic works. In this post, you will also read information on funding or sponsoring agency that supports my work. This information is important for me to publish in this blog in order to avoid misuse of information about my research activities by irresponsible parties either in Indonesia or elsewhere in the world.

The field of study, or major, which I took for my bachelor’s degree was English Language and Literature, with emphasis on English Literature. For master’s degree in 2013, I concentrated my study on English Studies major with Teaching of Writing (Rhetoric and Composition) as its minor.

The research streams of articles that I publish, as you can read in this post are related to, but not exclusive, the following disciplines: English Literacy, Rhetoric, Composition, Literary Criticism and Applied Linguistics. Within these streams, I designed my research articles on Second/Foreign Language Writing. The focus of my research is innovation and emerging issues on Teaching of Writing and English Literacy, which are framed within the paradigm of English as a Foreign Language in Indonesia. The major concentration of the research articles is connected to: English Rhetoric and Composition; Literacy Development for EFL Students; and Digital-Cultural Literacy of EFL Learners.

List of Scholarly Publication

The following list is information of articles that I have published since 2012 onward. The articles were published in different types of publication media. My works in previous years (before 2011) are excluded from this list because during those years, my position (jabatan fungsional) was Tenaga Pengajar. Listing scholarly works that I had published through this blog is, I think, a good idea. The list is available in this blog.

Note:
Information in this post is written for the purpose of informing the truth as it is. 
If, in the near future, some misleading information have been acclaimed under my name, Syayid Sandi Sukandi, that I receive grant in huge amount of Rupiahs (or Dollars) for a research of list of research as in above, such information needs my clarification and official statement. The party that states that I have received information about a funding needs to provide evidence from the authority. If they can provide true financial transaction evidence from authorised banks, as evidence that I received the funding, they are free from any law enforcement. If they cannot provide true financial transaction evidence, the party will have to process legal law under official arrangement with Indonesian government and legal constitutions, such as Undang-Undang  Guru dan Dosen, and Kitab Undang-Undang Hukum Pidana. It againsts the law when a party claims has funded a researcher, while in fact, the researcher had not been funded at every costs. “Costs” at this point mean all items that support a researcher conducted research, write an article of the research, and publish the article – inclusive in all aspects.  Partial funding might be available to be stated with clarified documentary evidence.
I, hereby, state that any misuse of my signature on any document needs my clarification in order that all parties can stand for justice and equal rights.
