Reskilling and Upskilling Workshop for DLSU Faculty and Graduate Students

As part of the IamInfoSMART 2015, the Libraries conducted the Reskilling and Upskilling Researchers’ Workshop at the Phinma E-Classroom, Room 303, Miguel Building on 7 November 2015. This workshop aims to help faculty and graduate students gather, organize, analyze, visualize and manage scholarly outputs and references using research tools.  It is specifically designed to provide instruction on the use of reference management tools in their studies and research work. The workshop’s topics include 

  • accessing high-impact factor journals using Scopus
  • managing documents and reference using Mendeley, reference manager solution; and,
  • submitting research papers for originality checking using Turnitin

Attended by five faculty members and eight graduate students, the workshop was facilitated by Pio Salvador Ramon Omana of Elsevier and Willian S.A. Frias, Readers’ Services Librarian. In his lecture, Omana showed the participants how to compare and select high impact journals using Scopus and manage documents and reference using Mendeley. Frias, on the other hand, helped participants create and manage their own Turnitin accounts.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants were able to identity peer-reviewed journals using Scopus as a user-friendly and reliable research tool for choosing where to publish their scholarly outputs. With the use of Mendeley, faculty members and graduate students can now effectively and efficiently store and organize cited sources; thus, improving their research productivity. Likewise, participants are now mindful of the responsible use of information as they generate Turnitin’s originality report and improve their writing skills. They also recognized that Turnitin is a useful tool to enhance their learning, teaching and assessment experience.
