This event was targeted to provide best practices along scientific manuscript writing.
Prof.Benyamin said that all researchers had to decide between “publish or perish” the manuscript. The importance of this message to all lecturers who desire to advance at their university. But, although the most of researchers would like to publish their work, the problem which comes to new authors is forcing the first step by submitting the first manuscript. There are some obstacles such as the lack of confidence and the fear of having the manuscript rejected. To ensure the opportunities of manuscript get published, Prof. Benyamin Lakitan suggested the authors to make sure that the topic is relevant and up-to-date. By starting with an interesting and relevant issue, the reviewer will read the manuscript passionately. At least, there is less chance that the manuscript will be thrown away.

However, collecting the references, read it, and put it into our manuscript takes a hard times. Oftentimes, author caught in the act of plagiarism is unintentional due to lack of caution in making a citation. Therefore, the existence of a software that serves as a tool in “citation and reference manager” is a necessity to identify the quality and authenticity every reference used.
The function of “citation and reference manager”, for helping the author to process documents owned references, grouping by topic/specific categories, as well as retrieving metadata contained in the document.

Another function of the reference manager allows the author to find relevant literature, store reference and bibliographic information on the database, as well as help writing citations and references follow a certain format, such as APA, IEEE, etc. The reference database manager facilitate the search process, giving the index, as well as labeling.
