Faculty train on journal accreditation

May 2, 2019 – As part of NWSSU’s plan to publish its own refereed journal, a team of senior and junior faculty members from both campuses underwent a training on local and international research journal accreditation at the Main Campus last April 29-30.

The two-day activity laid down the accreditation policies of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Open Journal System (OJS), a basic requirement for most online international refereed publication.

Other important topics discussed include journal indexing in indexing companies; issues in scientific publication; forming and sustaining a research journal; and developing and sustaining a research culture in the university.

Invited resource speaker, Assoc. Prof. Ferndinand T. Abocejo, is a current core faculty of the Graduate School in Eastern Visayas State Universiy (EVSU), Tacloban City, Leyte. Previously, he was an Education Program Specialist II at Cebu Normal University (CNU), Cebu City.

Prof. Abocejo has been working as an external peer reviewer to various research journals within and outside the Philippines. His research interests include natural and social science research, applied economics and statistics, forecasting, modeling, public policy, and education research.

The activity was spearheaded by the Research, Extension, and External Affairs (REEA) Office.
