Research Synergy Institute in collaboration with Malaysian Journal of Learning and Instruction (Q2) was held a Scientific Writing Workshop in Ara Hotel, Tangerang, on October 3, 2019. Professor Rosna as the Editor of MJLI presented as the Trainer. The focus of this workshop is on developing a well-structured and qualified paper for Scopus indexed journals. In this workshop, 16 selected participants had the opportunity to discuss their paper and discover how it can fit into what Journal’s Editor expects. During the workshop, all participants presented the summary of their research and meet with trainer for advice on their scientific writing.
Prof Rosna confirmed that the participant’s research was able to contribute significant points and ideas for discoveries in the field of education. The thing that needs to explore more is how to package the results of their research into a detailed and systematic manuscripts, also put it precisely at the heart of the research development in the world.
To help improve this, the methods used by Research Synergy Institute and Professor Rosna at the workshop can be concluded as follows:
- Pre-workshop paper review
- Lecturing and Discussion between Trainer and Participants regarding the tips & tricks in making a high-quality manuscripts. This discussion was enriched by using examples from published papers.
- Self-Reviewing. Participants are asked to exchange and review each other articles after they gained the new insights from the workshop.
With an interactive learning and engaging activities rather than passively listen to a lecture, the workshop ensured participants had a positive experience and fantastic learning opportunity that will help them increase their research work and scientific writing capacity. Research Synergy is committed to facilitating the development and dissemination of knowledge around the world, so we will continue to hold similar scientific workshops in the future.
