    Session Agenda

    Citations allow research scholars to acknowledge significant scientific contributions by other researchers in the same field and increase their credibility as a scientist. It also works as evidence for assertions and claims that researchers make in their manuscripts. Further, an exhaustive and methodical reference list is a hallmark of a well-informed researcher. We are glad to announce that The Royal Society of Medicine in collaboration with Karger Publishers and Enago will conduct an interactive webinar that will discuss good citation practices and share tips to draft a well-organized bibliography. Through this session, researchers will have an improved understanding of the following:

    What people have said about previous webinars

    I attended their see the future conference which was 2 day event. They had reputed speakers from the academic sector and a nobel laureate as their speakers who had a lot of valuable information to share. I thank Enago for the opportunity to attend.

    Dr. Paul Lavender

    Working with Enago is a pleasure from start to finish. The webinar was prepared with plenty of notice, well publicized, ran perfectly, and clear participant feedback was provided shortly afterwards. What more can you ask for?

    Dr. Tomas berdych

    Firstly, I regularly attend Enago’s webinars as they are very engaging. I find a lot of things in presented in their webinars to be very practical and useful in my research journey. They could also customize a webinar series for the university I teach. The webinars are helpful to the students in publishing better.

    Prof. Abdul Haaris

    The webinar that I attended on plagiarism and ethics was in depth and at the same time to the point. I got to learn a lot from these webinar and got my question answered. Thanks for this!
