A demand of International published scientific articles has been confirmed by Faculty of Economy and Business (FEB) University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM). Next month, during May 12th – 13th, 2015, FEB will hold a Workshop of Research Methodology and EndNote in UMM Inn. Chief committee Dr. Ilhayul Ulum, S.E, M.Si, Ak, CA, explained that this workshop was aimed to teach how to conduct a great research and how to comprehend a great concept of research methodology as well as how to use EndNote Software to support later publication.
EndNote is the software to ease and confirm between published texts and references automatically. “In this software, researcher could possibly choose either provided styles or own-designed style for reference,” said Ulum, who also used his own style named E.N.S for reference style.
EndNote Software, said him, has many advantages. “Research will be concrete and could decrease the plagiarism issues,” he added. Otherwise, the inconsistency potency between texts and references will be wide opened.
