Library Class of the Doctoral Program of Agricultural Science Batch 2

UPT Brawijaya University Library (UB) held a Library Class event inviting students from the Agricultural Science Doctoral Program from the Faculty of Agriculture on Tuesday (14/11/2023), in Meeting Room 1, UPT UB Library Building.

The event opened with remarks and motivation from FP Postgraduate Secretary, Dr. Ir. Cicik Udayana, M.Sc. which says that doctoral students are required to write international journals that are included in Scopus 2.

He also emphasized the importance of literacy in the era of information technology and the presence of AI in supporting research activities. The participants who attended were PhD students in Agricultural Sciences.

The speaker at this event was Pitoyo Widhi Atmoko, S.Sc., M.Sc. and Ir. Hery Prayitno. These two presenters are experts in their fields and have extensive experience regarding the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the context of searching references from Scopus and Systematic Literature Review (SLR).

Pitoyo Widhi Atmoko, S.Sc., M.Sc. presented the first session with the theme “Using AI to Search References from Scopus.”

In this session, he explained in detail how artificial intelligence technology can be applied to optimize scientific reference searches, especially from leading databases such as Scopus.

The second session by Ir. Hery Prayitno focuses on “SLR (Systematic Literature Review) with an AI Approach.” This material provides an in-depth understanding of how AI can be used to systematically compile literature reviews, helping students identify and filter relevant information from various literature sources.

At the end of the event, there was a question and answer session and further discussion. Participants seemed enthusiastic about sharing experiences and questions related to the application of AI in academic contexts. With an enthusiastic atmosphere, this Library Class event made a positive contribution to increasing the information literacy of PhD students in Agricultural Sciences at Brawijaya University.

The Library Class held by UPT Brawijaya University Library not only provides additional knowledge, but also opens students’ insight into technological advances, especially in supporting the research process in the field of Agricultural Science. Hopefully similar events can continue to be held to provide greater benefits for the development of science in the academic environment. (*/OKY/UB PR/ Trans. Iir)
