The seminar was organized by the Community Service Team of SPELE as a part of the community service program in research and publication assistance with an association of English teachers (MGMP).
The moderator in this seminar was Dr. Ive Emaliana. Two keynote speakers from SPELE were invited, Pratnyawati Nurudi S, M.Li., the Editor of the EDUCAFL Journal, and Alies Poetri Lintangsari, M.Li., the Chief Editor of EDUCAFL Journal, one of UB’s journals focusing on the education of English as a foreign language.
The event started with an opening speech from Dra. Ismarita Ida Rahmiati, M.Pd. as the representative of the Community Service Team of SPELE FCS UB. In her speech, Ida conveyed, “We hope that our event will motivate you to keep researching and making publication amidst your busy schedule.”
After the welcome speech, the moderator read the curriculum vitae of the two speakers. Then, Alies began the first session by explaining the finishing process before sending the articles in OJS (Open Journal System). Some of the things, that the writers should pay attention to, involve the structure of the journal, the target journal, avoiding self-plagiarism, and re-checking the manuscript.
After Alies finished her session, Pratnyawati began the second session. She demonstrated how to submit a journal through the website. The process includes creating an account, editing the profile, and several steps related to the detail of the journal that is going to be submitted.
After the two speakers finished their sessions, the event was then continued to question and answer session. Participants asked questions about research writing and submission which the two speakers answer directly. [AVR/DTS/MSH/PR FCS]
