In an effort to facilitate the publication of international journals for the lecturers, Sangga Buana University (USB) YPKP signed a memorandum of understanding / MoU with Widyatama University.
Specifically, it was through a guidance from Prof. H. Obsatar Sinaga or commonly called Prof. H. Obi, who is the rector of Widyatama University and concurrently Professor of Padjadjaran University.
“Through the MoU, our international journals will be published immediately. Since normatively the publishing takes one year,” said Dr. H. Asep Effendi, the chancellor of USB YPKP, after conducting an MoU with Prof. H. Obsatar Sinaga, rector of Widyatama University, Monday (12/09/2019) at the USB YPKP Campus in Bandung.
He further said that cooperation was the root of the Tridharma College application.
The USB Chancellor of YPKP also admitted that one of the advancements of a campus was seen from the many international journals published by his lecturers.
“We will build the culture of writing through the Community Service Writing Institute (LPPM) also accustomed to doing research and writing,” he explained.
By this collaboration, in two weeks, international journals written by USB YPKP lecturers can be published, one of them through scopus.
Dr. H. Asep also praised Widyatama, who is now in the top 100 ranks (rank 95) of the best tertiary institutions in Indonesia.
“They have done a lot of international cooperation. Internationally accredited, we are obliged to learn from them,” he said.
In addition, the USB YPKP and Widyatama also conducted an MoU in the fields of student affairs, marketing, graduates and others.
It is expected that the synergy between the USB YPKP campus which has the Campus of Entrepreneur tagline can accelerate in improving its quality.
Meanwhile Prof. H. Obi said that in 2020 he had a quota of 5000 international journals to be published.
“We have a quota of 5,000 international journals and we will distribute them to campuses in the LLDIKTI region IV, West Java and Banten, to work together to publish them,” said Prof. H. Obi.
By the concern of MoU signing with USB YPKP, it may increase the synergy to develop well for those universities.
“We have done a lot of cooperation with universities abroad. We feel guilty if we don’t cooperate with our neighbors who are very close. To go hand in hand towards better progress, “said the Chancellor who won second place in the creator’s article in Malaysia.
Prof. H. Obi was ready to help so that the USB YPKP lecturer journal could be published. It is planned that there will be 6 permanent USB lecturers encouraged to publish international journals, and in 2021 they can become professors.
