As such, in line with the university's aspiration that is to increase the number of citations being cited, the UUM Research and Innovation Management Centre (RIMC) organised a workshop entitled ‘Strategies to Increase Citation’ on 5 August, 2015 at the Angsana Hall, EDC-UUM. The workshop attracted as many as 36 lecturers who represented their respective schools. The workshop aims to provide hands-on exposure to academic staff in developing profile accounts on Google Scholar ResearchGate, Academia.edu and other social media.
A speaker from Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI), Dr. Nor Mohamed Nor Azhari Azman was invited to share his vast experience and thoughts as well as provide the participants with guidance on matters concerning citation. The hands-on approach used by the presenter managed to facilitate better understanding amongst the participants.
Hence, the organising team from RIMC expressed hope that this workshop will help participants better understand the strategies and methods utilized to increase the issuance of citations in journal articles. RIMC also targets that all the lecturers will create their profile account the very least by the end of August 2015.
