Improve Research for International Publications

Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana (UKSW) held a guest lecture called “Thriving in the Publication Journey: Some Strategies for Novice Researchers”. This activity was conducted in room 126 of the UKSW E building, on Tuesday (18 July), presenting a lecturer from Miami University, Oxford, USA, Nugrahenny T. Zacharias, Ph.D., as the speaker.

According to Vice Rector IV Joseph Ernest Mambu, S.Pd., M.A., Ph.D., this activity was held as a part of the UKSW strategic plan to improve lecturer research and publications, especially for lecturers who do not have experience in doing international publications.

The participants who attended this guest lecture included lecturers from social humanities departments like Communications, Public Relations, Language, and Theology.

“In the future, we hope that this activity will encourage lecturers to develop their research and be able to do international publications, so that lecturers’ research results at UKSW become a reference for other universities and UKSW’s ranking can also increase,” she explained.

Have a Systematic Plan

Meanwhile, in her explanation in front of the UKSW lecturers who were the participants of this activity, Henny explained that lecturers who want to do international publications should have a systematic plan. A researcher is required to know the appropriate method for writing and what technology is best to properly support the research.

Especially for UKSW lecturers, she suggested that research can be combined with the teaching learning process. The purpose is so that when a lecturer teaches, more theories can be explored to become the basis of a research mindset. A research thinking basis can also be related with community service activities.  

“It will be better if research is conducted with teaching activities; moreover, when it is supported with community service, it will make the research become more efficient,” she stated.

Henny once served as a UKSW lecturer from 1999 until 2014, as well as held the position of Language and Literature Faculty Dean (now the Language and Arts Faculty). (at/griv_jurkam/upk/chis_bpha: photo:griv).
