Enago Conducts a Series of Workshops at Korea University
Seoul, Korea: In our continued efforts to extend and provide meaningful insights to Korean researchers about academic publishing, Enago lately conducted a series of workshops at the very well-renowned Korea University. These workshops were focused on introducing researchers, students and professors to understand the challenges related to research ethics as well as provide practical advice on the important aspects of manuscript preparation and publication.
The workshops were conducted by Dr E S Hwang—a Member of the Council of Korean University Research Ethics and Chair, Committee of Publication Ethics for CASE. The first session was devoted to help experienced and early-stage researchers understand different issues related to research and publication misconduct such as plagiarism, authorship guidelines, data and image manipulation, and fake reviews.
The second workshop was focused towards helping young graduate students and early-stage researchers understand the importance of academic writing concepts such as the IMRAD format, journal submission process, and manuscript preparation. In this session, Dr Hwang addressed the language and grammar difficulties faced by a majority of Korean researchers. He also provided some knowledgeable tips to improve the language quality of the articles that are submitted to international journals, which would help overcome rejection at the submission or peer review stage.
With the wonderful response to Enago’s workshops from the participants, Enago shall continue with the author workshop initiative and guide researchers by conducting similar sessions in collaboration with institutes such as Korea University. About the response to the workshops, Mr. BK Kang (Country Manager, Crimson Interactive Korea) said, “Such workshops are an opportunity for researchers to gain awareness of the relevant issues in academic publishing. By working with institutes like Korea University, we are glad to provide a forum where Korean researchers can discuss and highlight the changes faced by them in improving the visibility and acceptance of their researcher by international journals.”
