To support researchers in the region, DOST XI, in collaboration with Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) and ELSEVIER Philippines, conducted an orientation of the Elsevier’s Science Direct and Scopus Databases and Author Writeshop on April 18, 2018 at the Grand Regal Hotel, Lanang, Davao City. About 110 participants from different schools and institutions attended the said orientation and writeshop.
Mr. Pio Salvador Ramon Omana, resource speaker from Elsevier Phils., discussed the Scopus and Science Direct databases. Dr. Anthony C. Sales, CESO III, DOST Regional Director, was also present in the event and delivered his message of motivation for the researchers. Researchers were encouraged to optimize the Remote Access shared by DOST-PCIEERD to help them in enhancing their ability to publish. In the region, there are 27 identified institutions that were given free access.
Both the Scopus and Science Direct databases are tools for strengthening research capabilities, which also aims to help researchers have access on millions of publications and come up with better and patent-worthy researches. Elsevier is a global information analytics provider that assists and helps institutions and professionals advance in the field of healthcare and science. Through this event, DOST XI helps promote awareness and capacitate researchers in the region with library e-resources.
