Hanoi (VNA) – A series of training workshops on Research 123, a toolkit that assists researchers in getting their papers published internationally, opened in Hanoi on October 23.

The National Agency for Science and Technology Information (NASATI) in collaboration with the Singaporean-based Innovative Education Services launched the events in a bid to help Vietnamese experts access international output and integrate into the global scientific community. 

Speaking at the workshop, NASATI Deputy Director General Dao Manh Thang stressed the number of Vietnamese research papers published in international scientific journals has surged in recent years but still falls short of expectations.

He pointed to the fact that local scientists face difficulties in selecting publishers, following publication process, and saving their internationally published works.

At the workshop, experts from Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong have introduced the Research 123 kit and provide relevant consultancy and knowledge for participants.-VNA
