The Publication Unit of the University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) conducted a test-run of the Online Southeastern Philippines Journal of Research and Development (SPJRD) Manuscript Submission, Tracking and Revision System vis-a-vis Capability-Building of Researchers on Journal Writing” on March 26-27, 2019 at the Davao Eagle Ridge Resort, Ulas, Davao City.
The two-day activity was participated by twenty-two (22) faculty-researchers from the 11 colleges whose completed researches have been shortlisted for the SJRD publication first revival issue. These researchers were considered as ‘cream of the crop’ who are expected to publish more relevant researches.
The Deputy Director for Publications Unit, Dr. Anne Marie Jennifer E. Eligio, believes that the activity will help hasten editorial processes. It is also a means by which the University could establish a publications management system that claims quality standards at par with other reputable journal publications. Participants were expected to give their inputs or comments on the Journal website, and at the same time will be able to enhance their skill and appreciate the process of Journal Article Writing.
The first revival issue of the SPJRD will be released by the end of March 2019, as announced by the University’s Editorial Board. The second issue of the journal will be released within the third quarter of this year. Striving hard to strengthen the Research Publication of the University will help the University achieve its vision of becoming a Research University. (EAGecale)
