Topic: Catastrophic Mega Earthquake of magnitude 7.6 hit Central Nepal on 25 April 2015. For the reconstruction process, following the widespread devastation, trees outside forests can be a reliable source but often outlooked. So this study aims to find out the contribution of these resources on the reconstruction of permanent houses in the Ramechhap district of Central Nepal.

First Suggested Title: Trees Outside Forests for Reconstruction of Permanent Houses following Earthquake in Central Nepal 

Final Title: Trees Outside Forests(TOFs) for Reconstruction after Earthquake in Nepal.

  1. Hi Simant,


    Topic seems quite original and could pay local authority attention. If such catastrophes endangers all country maybe You could broader title for all Nepal. That could make bigger number of potential readers.


    Good luck with Your studies


    1. Hello Reinis,

      Thank you for taking your time out for the feedback. I will consider your comments on revising my title. 

      Have a nice weekend.

      Warm Regards,


  2. Hi Simant,


    Very interesting topic and it is a practical issue that might be applied to solve real problems in Nepal. I like the topic and introduction. Not sure whether there is another word for 'trees outside forests'? To me, your description is very broad and maybe you can make it more specific depending on the case of your study. 


    Kind regards, 



    1. Hello Shaohui,

      Thank you for your feedback and comment. Actually Trees Outside Forests are usually called TOFs. But I did not like to use acronyms in the title. I will consider the comment about the description.

      Have a nice weekend.

      Warm Regards,


  3. Hi Simant,


    The topic sounds very interesting to me because Japan have earthquakes (so, core research audience group would include people like me), and I think the title is long enough to cover nicely the main idea of your research.

    One thing came to my mind is, actually, the same as Shaohui, the "Trees outside Forests" part. I don't know if you have the exact terminology for these trees, but I would say you may need some clarification on this part. So far from the phrase, I imagine trees in towns, fields, and other places not forested.

    But at the same time, it may be hard to explain it in the title in terms of length and your contents would describe the definition of it... so I say your current title may be catchy enough.

    Hope it helps something.


    Stay warm,


    1. Hello Ryo,

      Thank you for your insightful comment and feedback. Yes, you exactly got the point about trees outside forests and they are usually called TOFs. But I did not like to use an acronym in the tile. I am grateful for your time upon reading and suggestions for me.

      Have a nice weekend.

      Warm Regards,
