In the turnitin process, problems arise, including the high similarity to articles that appear to be their own, published elsewhere. “The solution is to exclude that section, a lot of questions usually arise when managing credit scores,” he explained. On that occasion, he also discussed Mendeley Reference Manager and Mendeley Desktop.

Furthermore, it was also conveyed about accreditation and indexation which are supporting tools for accreditation assessment. Then the concern is the stages of good journal management. Published journals must have e-ISSN, DOI, complete journal information, profile on Google Scholar, journal optimization and the last one is GARUDA to register with ARJUNA. “To maintain the consistency of publications, it is necessary to observe that editors must understand author guidelines, templates are not everything, the importance of language editors, good proofreading and lastly, do not change journal managers,” he concluded.
