Support in the early stage of study is crucial for novice researchers as it will give them some insights of where to seek for extra information on relevant literature, institutions, people and research trend without having to go through tedious process of identifying this information all by themselves. The result of the implementation of SSNR shows significant information that can be utilized by novice researchers in accelerating research process. Thus, this paper will discuss on the evaluation of SSNR by novice researchers, in terms of its usability. The results are promising which indicated that SSNR work as it should.
