Elsevier, a global provider of information solutions for science, health, and technology professionals, in cooperation with the Rizal Library and the Office of the Associate Dean for Research and Creative Work conducted “Enhancing Your Research Performance Throughout the Entire Research Workflow” at the Ateneo de Manila University on Wednesday, January 28.

The event started with a seminar at the Leong Hall Auditorium for faculty, staff, and graduate students who would like to improve their research workflow. The speakers were Elsevier Singapore’s South East Asia Solution Consultant Elise Shen and Solution Sales Manager of S&T Books Adam Goh.

Shen is an International Healthcare Management graduate of the University of London, Imperial College of London. She is responsible for assessing the research needs of institutions and recommending suitable e-solutions to complement research workflow. At the seminar, Shen talked about empowering researchers using Scopus features such as Author Identifier and journal metrics like Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) and SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) as well as how a full-text scientific database like ScienceDirect can improve research workflow.

Goh, a Computer Engineering graduate of Nanyang Technological University, is responsible for developing the electronic and print books business in the emerging markets of Vietnam, Indonesia and Philippines. For his talk, Goh focused on content innovation and solutions available from ScienceDirect eBooks to publishers. He demonstrated how Elsevier has revitalized its reference works and taken books publishing to a new level.

After the seminar, Elsevier opened a booth at the Loyola Schools Bookstore Lobby to promote ScienceDirect and Scopus to students. Those who visited the booth were treated to Elsevier premium items as they engaged in fun activities like a lucky draw and an online quiz.

The University’s latest collaboration with Elsevier is part of the strategic thrust to enhance research performance. Suggestions on other topics or activities to support researchers may be sent to adrcw.ls@ateneo.edu.
