After successfully organized the first scientific & academic writing workshop in Universitas Terbuka, Surakarta, Research Synergy Institute (RSI) continued to hold a second workshop. The workshop was attended by a small group who included 11 UT faculty members. In the second workshop, RSI focused on helping all the participants submit their final paper to the ICIEP 2019 website. At least one week prior to the workshop, participants should send their research paper for purposes of peer review.
Present as the trainer was Dr. Rasmitadila and one facilitator from Research Synergy Institute. Dr. Rasmitadila has published number of research papers in National and Scopus Indexed Journals and acts as RSI Editorial Hub. During the workshop, she advised Authors to do proper research and write an effective research paper. She also provided some notes toward efficiency and conciseness for each participant’s papers. Based on the trainer’s direction, all participants went directly to summarizing the research findings and arranged the most relevant information in their papers.
After nearly a half-time the workshop ran, participants are directed to follow the technical guidance to conform their papers to the submission guideline of ICIEP. The RSI facilitator explained a step-by-step guidance to be applied by authors and let them fix their papers instantly. In this session, participants became familiar with ‘plagiarism tools’, ‘grammatical check’ and proper ‘referencing style’. As a way of helping participants, trainer and facilitator supported their exercise by guiding them privately. The workshop ended with the participants’ success in submitting their articles on the conference website correctly. The workshop participants claimed that they felt more confident to accomplish their research papers and publish it in international conference or reputable journal. RSI also encouraged the participants by giving a valuable opportunity for 5 best papers to be invited on “Meet the Editor” Workshop. This workshop is designed to guide Authors and facilitate them to publish their papers in Scopus Indexed Journal.
