In the academic field, either schools, colleges or other educational institutions, there are many conditions that must be affixed in the preparation of the document, such as writing research reports, thesis or dissertation to the creation of a scientific journal. With the completeness of features in Word, a variety of needs can be managed easily and automatically.

This workshop was held in E-library at engineering Faculty, UGM on March 07, 2017 and it was attended by 35 participants from students majoring in engineering. In this workshop, the participants were invited to learn about the preparation in drafting a scientific document, including management of the page size, numbering, election typeface, reference and preparation for printing.
