Abstract. The study is substantiated by the need to address a problem of developing specialists to work with online information resources and adjust to work environment and tools of information support of an organization. This reflects social demand for improved performance in the domain of science and education.

The aim of the study was to determine the role and purpose of the workshop “Science Online: online information resources for science and education” to manage training of researchers in developing practical skills to work with national and international scientific citation databases to increase indicators of publication activity of the authors and institutions. The article covers methodological aspects related to the use of bibliometric approaches and evaluation indicators for analysis of publication activity and citation of authors of scientific papers as well as research and educational institutions, optimization of work with national and international scientific citation indexes, instruments and services.

The authors propose for discussion context and workshop’ scope of work, , training package, working program of the specialists’ training module and its thematic blocks that show capabilities of the informational analytical systems, instruments and services for objective display of publications in scientific citation databases, systemization and analysis of publication activity of researchers of scientific institutions.

The article presents contextual novelty of the program related to systemization of knowledge and skills, improved competence of users in the sphere of information technologies, increased workforce proficiency of research institutions. The article shows that the role and purpose of the workshop are to improve the level and traffic of informational exchange within the research community; to develop high-performance communication instruments and related analytical and statistical studies on wide range of indicators; to increase competence and qualification level of researchers and competitive advantages of research and development institutions; and to optimize science management.

Keywords: workshop; online information resources; information and communication technologies; information analysis systems; publication activity; research and educational institution.
