Abstract
During the global pandemic, academics have experienced a challenging transition period that affects the learning process, leading to disruption in adjusting the existing learning modes. More specific problems faced by graduate students upon the research consultation and writing scientific reports from theses, dissertations, to papers for publication. This descriptive research aims to demonstrate the practicality of the available online platforms for the academic writing supervision for graduate students during the pandemic. Data were collected by distributing online questionnaires and in-depth interviews to the postgraduate students from all study programs of postgraduate school at one public university attending manuscript clinic workshops conducted by the researchers. Student’s submission was examined as an indicator of the success and practicality of the offered platforms. Two online platforms are believed able to effectively accommodate the scientific consultation process for the graduate students as an effort to complete the academic writing. This research is expected to provide alternative solutions in overcoming issues on scientific writing consultation among graduate students during the pandemic and basis for university principals for upcoming policy related to online academic writing consultation.
