Two research institutions, the National Institute of Microbiology and Biotechnology (BIOTECH) and Postharvest Horticulture Training and Research Center (PHTRC) were coordinated to hold on-site users training for their respective researchers on morning and afternoon of 15 August 2016, respectively.
Resource speakers from LibTech Source Philippines, Inc. Mr. Nelvin Ace Abanto, Product Specialist and from Elsevier, Mr. Pio Salvador Ramon Omana, Account Manager were invited to talk on their respective products.The former talked on Promoting original writing and academic integrity with Turnitin, while the latter discussed Empowering UPLB Researchers with Elsevier's ScienceDirect and Scopus.
